If you’ve read any of my books, you’ll know I LOVE a good swear. Sometimes inventive, sometimes conventional, I’ve rarely made a supposed ‘bad’ word I didn’t like.
In Here Comes the Son, I got incredibly creative with Lalo, one of the main characters. He doesn’t curse in a way you’d expect.
So here are a few of his greatest hits.
- Holy Crumbs
- Son of a Carrot
- Son of a Cabbage
- Oh My Basil
- Basil It Up
- For the Love of Oregano
- For Fennel’s Sake
- What the Fennel?
I think ‘basil it up’ is probably my favourite.
