Challenge accepted

A few days ago, I wrote about some ugly words that have invaded our vocabulary, and admitted that I used them far too often, and was not proud of it.  Since then, I’ve been trying to come up with something that is more than just hollow words.  I decided to borrow an idea from some co-workers (they have a “swear jar”).

Beginning May 1, I am going to keep track of how many times I use those words, and I am going to fine myself a dollar each time.  At the end of the month, I will post a tally on here.  The funds will accumulate for the remainder of the year, and at that time, I will find a charity to donate my funds to (I bet it will be autism-related!).

I challenge and encourage everyone to join me in this effort.  If you need help designating a charity, I will be happy to offer some suggestions.

  1. You know I have already accepted, but do I get a running tab since I never have any cash?
