Mommy, What Does the F-Word Mean?

I’m playing Polly Pockets with my five-year-old because I’m such an attentive and devoted mother. Just kidding. I’m playing on my phone while occasionally cramming a tiny doll into an even tinier rubber dress, an act which I’m certain is a reenactment of the goings on in the ninth circle of hell. As Mari plucks off a doll’s head to replace it with a new one (See? Hell. Evil.), she says, “Mommy, why is the F-word a bad word?” ***screeching brakes sound*** “Ruh???” Like Scooby Doo.
