The Friggin’ Jar
In 2011, I did the 100 Thing Challenge as a lifestyle change to challenge myself to be happy with what I have and to open up more opportunities to bless other people.
In 2012, I started a new challenge called The Friggin’ Jar Challenge…and I am already failing miserably at it.
Every time I say the word “Friggin”…I have to put $1 into the glass vacuum of tears and suffering.
I realized that over the past few years, my use of the word “Friggin” has increased. Some examples include:
That friggin guy!
You’re friggin killing me
Bloody friggin hell
Here’s a breakdown of the fees:
-$1 = use of “friggin” or “freak” or “flippin”
-$100 = accidental F-bomb (although I am pretty safe with this one… have only slipped 3 maybe 4 times since high school)
…unless of course I use it correctly like, “That guy is a freak of nature.” But if I say, “That guy is a friggin freak of nature!”, then I’ll have to contribute to the jar.
At the end of the year, my plan is to take whatever money I have accumulated in the jar and treat my friends out to a nice meal.
I will post periodic updates on how I am doing, but as of right now… I am almost three weeks into the challenge and the jar has $48 of my precious dollar bills.
I can already see my friend count greatly increasing near the end of 2012. Mmm…steak.
Do I know what I am getting myself into?
