I need a word

Tra ra! I've started a new novel!

Writing one that is. Now the heroine is a 28-year-old independent, quite tough, young woman. I want her to say 'for goodness sake' or its equivalent. I think she would say 'for f***'s sake' but I get a hot flush just typing that. I won't use God or Christ so can you suggest a suitable alternative?

Can't think of one off hand but will keep my ears out! (is that a saying? doesn't sound right)

For pity's sake too tame I guess.

Why not go for a hotter flush with, "F******g hell"?

leslie said...

I guess "For Pete's sake" is too tame, also. ???

I "could" give you some REALLY hot flush expressions...of course, I'd never say them out loud, though. Does God know what I type??? lol

Jan said...

what about WTF, just the three letters?

DeeJay said...

How about "for crying out loud!" as an alternative?

Liz said...

Hmm, some good suggestions there. I am trying them out in my head and I'll see which one suits her best as the story develops.

Thank you all.

btw, suburbia, I keep my ears out all the time: they're made that way, sort of dumbo-like.

Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.
