Use of Term “Chrissakes” in “Mental (2018)” by Marie K Johnston

So, the term “chrissakes” is used in three ways in this novel:

-substitute for curse words

-substitute for past events already written about in previous chapters that reader will recognize when characters are continually frustrated by these past events

-substitute for a word in the readers’ imaginations in same way that words are left blank in Mad Libs (1980s word game)

Have fun figuring out how I am using this term each time you find it in “Mental (2018),” since it is a frequent flyer term used liberally!
