My use of the F bomb in my communication is well documented. It's part of my alleged intimidating persona. X-thousand times is just scratching the surface.

Kid related... changing and washing diapers - including poking myself with diaper pins (yes, hundreds and possibly thousands of times), washing, filling, warming bottles.

Home related... floor washing, vacuuming, washing clothes/laundry, ironing shirts/pants, washing/drying dishes by-hand.

As a type 1 Diabetic for the last 39 years (since I was 26) I’ve given myself about 58000 shots of insulin (about 4 each day). Not to mention the 3 or 4 finger pokes each day for testing.

Anybody ever figure out how many times they've had sex? It's a wonder it stays exciting
What isn't is how many meals you've cooked.

Since about '94-95, logging on to the internet. I was late to the game since I was overseas where internet access and online time wasn't very inexpensive.

Anyone who is familiar with sewing machines, if you don't have enough thread coming out the other side of the needle, when you start sewing, it comes out and you have to re-thread the needle. I have done this thousands of times, you would think I would learn. And now I am almost at the point where I need to use a needle threader.

Listened to a patient's heart and lungs. You do that enough times, the second you put your stethoscope on them, you will know something is different or "off" if there is anything going on with their heart and/or lungs.

Mast...um oh wait, never mind.
Let's not be ashamed, it's only being human. You masticated in bed, how many times? and crumbs fell onto the bed sheets!
