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!
