Erin: The editor changed all my "effs" to "fucks."
Boy Writer: Yeah?
Boy Writer: That sucks.
Boy Writer: I had an editor once who changed "mediocre" to "shitty."
Erin: "Shitty" and "mediocre" are about the same.
Boy Writer: You and him would have gotten on famously. He also made me use "cum" all the time. Even in sentences like, "she is going to cum over after dinner."
Erin: Okay, I'll give you the point on "cum" versus "come." But I'm not so sure about shitty and mediocre.
Boy Writer: How can you say that? Shitty is shitty. Shitty is not mediocre. Shitty aspires to one day be mediocre. Shitty is not even shittiocre.
Erin: I like shittiocre.
Boy Writer: Shittiocre is also a discontinued Crayola crayon color.
Erin: I miss the shittiocre crayon. But you are right about shitty and mediocre. They are not the same. For instance, shitty sex is way worse than mediocre sex.
Boy Writer: There is such as thing as shitty sex?
