Clear Blue Water by Karen Montague-Reyes for November 11, 2019
Person on TV: Oooh Lucy! Mira que tiene cosa esta muer- Eve: A-ha! There! Did Ricky just totally cuss Lucy out, or what? Manny: No! He said something like, "Look what's up with this woman." Why? Eve: So he never cursed? Manny: It was the '50s! They couldn't even say the word "pregnant" on air, and you thought Ricky was swearing? Get real! Eve: It was Spanish! It might have made it past the censors! ...boy, they sure ahd weird morals back then. Manny: Back then? Yes, our society is so moral now. Eve: They couldn't curse, yet Ricky yelled at Lucy, called her stupid, and spanked her! Frankly, I prefer cussing. Manny: Aaah, the '50s. Spanking your wife for shopping too much?...Priceless!
