Saving for College Sucks Ass

Penny for your thoughts? How about a dollar for your swear words?

Recently we kicked off a new family plan. If you swear, you put a dollar in the jar. By the end of Summer, I’m gonna be freaking rich!

This isn’t going to be easy. I, admittedly, swear like a sailor. The anchor doesn’t fall far from the boat.

The swear jar prompts my two youngest kids to ask, “What if I say ass instead of donkey? Does that count?”

Sigh. As if donkeys are a hot topic.

So one day after the new plan was in effect, my youngest son was taking out the garbage and mutters under his breath, “Taking out the garbage sucks ass.”

His sister quickly blurts out, “He just said ass! He needs to pay a dollar!”

He sharply turned to her and said, “Stop telling on me. I’m trying to save up for college.”

How can you resist those education goals? And maybe the swear jar is the perfect college-savings plan after all? 🙂
