Creative Alternatives to Curse Words

When I was younger I had kind of a potty mouth. But as I get older, I realize that I don’t really like to hear people use swear words casually in conversations.  Let’s face it, it’s a total turn off. It might make you feel better, but it really doesn’t make you sound cooler or anything. I propose that we use different words to get our point across in frustrating or intense situations. Here are a few of my favorite creative alternatives to cussing:

Cheese and Rice
Cripes
Fiddle Sticks
Frick
Frickin’ A
Fudge
Geez Louise
Heck Fire
Holy Cow
Holy Heck
Holy Moly
Mother of Pearl
Snickers
Son of a Gun
Shut the Front Door

Let’s all get creative when expressing ourselves! We may get some funny looks, though. What are some of your favorite alternatives to cussing? Leave me a comment and tell me so I can add it to my list!
