6 months have passed since Kaya entered our lives which also means 6 months have passed since first depositing money into the Swear-Jar.
I counted and the lil bugger (oops, I mean booger… Wait, bugger’s not a swear. Or is it? Welcome to the ongoing battle in our household of what constitutes a swear) has made $81 dollars off her parents so far (and a few stragglers entering the swear-free zone).
$81 divided by .25cents = 324 swears
324 divided by 182 days of her life = 1.78 swears a day
Not bad! (okay, so obviously we have so, so been cheating)
1.78 swears a day eh?
Must be something along the lines of:
Shit-shkabob (Yummy, meaty deliciousness…)
Fu-Lalalalalala (Caught myself early. yay!)
Dam-illydilly (Haven’t you heard of them? No? Totally garlicy pickles dude. Nope. Wasn’t swearing! It’s a pickle! Too bad if you don’t believe me.)
Bas-turdies (What? I was talking about fish poop! Really! I was not about to swear. No, I do not owe 25 cents. Do not. Not!)
Ass-inine (As in ‘you’re such an Ass… Inine’. Total quarter in the jar)
Bitch-unky(as in ‘What a bitch…unky belly she’s got there’ and if you want your daughter calling out for Uncle Bitch with a big fat belly than fine, don’t pay up. Whatever.)
Seriously, if we invest that $168 now and add in that much every year with a 6% rate of return, Kaya will have around $6000 by the time she graduates highschool.
Which will more than likely cover, oh say, one semesters worth of textbooks by then.
Damn, if we want this girl to go to University, we’d better fuckin get our asses in gear and swear more often for the lil bugger 🙂
