(Back in May of 2007 I noticed that a bunch of people in the blogosphere had created lists of 101 things to do in 1001 days. I was intrigued by the notion but felt I needed to change the parameters. So I created my 40 by 40 list. 40 things I wanted to do before I turned 40. Well on August 17th I turn 40, and I need to give $10 to charity for every uncompleted item. So it is time to see how I did.)
31. Don’t Curse for Two Weeks – NOT COMPLETED
Running Tally: $140.00 to charity.
I didn’t even try this one. I know I can do it, I just never tried. It is not like I curse like a sailor, but I wouldn’t mind cursing less or not at all. I am particularly amazed at how ubiquitous swearing is in public. It is unbelievable what kids are exposed to these days. I remember the first time I heard an adult use the F-word. I thought my eyes would pop out of my head. Now people use it anywhere and everywhere without regard to who might hear.
