I am starting to think of what resolutions I'd like to make for the new year. I (H) shared one with my mom (M) today:
H: For my new year's resolution, I am going to pay whoever hears me swear $1.
M: Why are you deciding to not swear anymore?
H: Because it's bad
M: But it's funny
M: When you swear, it's because you are startled. You don't swear out of anger. So it's not bad.
H: (Thinking of the times I swear. She has a point. Who's parents encourage swearing? Mine. Swearing abstinence? It's not going to happen.) You are the coolest mom.
Here's to New Years Resolutions.
