Puttin' my money where my mouth is


During college a couple of the girls on my floor started a swear jar. Have you ever heard of this? Where every time you use profanity, you have to put a quarter in the jar? Right.

I avoided their apartment like the plague - I would've been broke in about 20 minutes. But I think they bought themselves dinner at Chick-fil-A or something at the end of the month. Ah, Chick-fil-A....

Anyway, I think they were trying to encourage themselves to quit cursing. Which I don't really see the point of. But I guess some people think it's important to have clean mouths. Whatever. That's not my point.

My point is...I'm capitalizing on the idea. Until finals are over (that's a little less than a month), I'm going to start a crazy jar. Every time I get bitchy or irrational or obnoxious or hysterical with the babe, I put a quarter in a jar. And at the end of finals, she can buy herself something nice.

Like a massage.

Or maybe a car.

I did this when I applied to law school, only it was for checking application status/pre-law related crazy.

....I love my new espresso machine.

This is a great idea! Maybe I should apply it to every 5 minute increment spent on the internet.....

Love it. How about a vacation in Sonoma? Think about it.

this isn't working. i never feel like it's my fault so i never feel like it deserves a quarter. plus, i don't ever feel generous or submissive enough to offer a quarter. i'm way too haughty.

how's is going for you? can we get an update?
