    Pretty sure that you can't drop the F-Bomb more than necessary. It's always necessary.

    I should clarify, I am now on chapter eleven, and he dosen't drop the f-bomb at all. All I meant was, he uses words that so obscure and foreign to me that it seems a little like putting on aires. Didn't mean to accuse or confuse.

    You've been around an actual fire station before, haven't you?

    Well, the guy admits he was a writer first and the firefighting came later. So yeah, he tends to be a little verbose. It seems that he's the town intellectual. How many volunteer firefighters do you know who attend poetry readings?

    "I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    I admit I swear more than I need to haha. Working in a saw mill and the FD, you are exposed to nothing but swear words, almost becomes a code. BUT, if I were going to write a book about my life, I would try to leave them out. I think he could have used some more acceptable replacement words. Either way it didn't bother me one bit, and was hands down one of the best books I have read in a good while. Glad someone here brought it up, or I would have never heard about it.
