Swear Finger

Scene: Kids just before bed. Optimal time to ask in depth questions
Kaitlyn: Dad, were you born with a swear finger?
Me: I was. Everybody is born with that finger but it isn’t a swear finger unless you mean to use it for swearing.
Kaitlyn: No. I mean when your hand was born, did it have a swear finger?
Me: Yes, it’s there for everyone. Why do you ask?
Kaitlyn: No reason, I was just wondering.

I could not find out what had prompted the wondering.
