“Poppy cock,” M.J.’s wife blurted out, as she had been listening from the doorway. M.J. was startled to hear his wife swear like that. The only other time he had heard any curse words from his wife’s lips, was on the night of the day they were married. Apparently she was disappointed by something. Anyway, she never talked much any more any way since there was usually something in her mouth that she was chewing. So M.J. was quite startled by the sudden outburst.
