A friend shares: She is driving her three-year-old on some fast, busy road. She misses a turnoff and exclaims, "Oh G…" (catching herself) "… golly!"
"Mommy, what does 'golly' mean?"
"It's something people say when they are surprised."
From the crease in his tiny forehead she can tell that the little wheels are turning around. Sure enough, a few minutes later, he has figured it out.
"Mommy, Mommy! Does 'golly' mean 'fuck-it?!'"
