PESHTIGO, WI—After a lifetime of assiduously avoiding the use of foul language, Helen Chernak, 59, is finally learning to swear, her delighted offspring reported Monday.
"I was at Mom's this weekend, and the cat knocked something over," said Michael Chernak, 34, Helen's eldest child. "Mom shakes her little fist and says, 'Damn it, Felix! Get down from there, you little shit.' I was like, 'Where did that come from?' It was so wild."
According to Michael, he and siblings Julie, 32, and James, 29, have been encouraging their mother to swear for years.
