swear jar

i am pleased to announce that last night, the famous swear jar funds were at last cashed in! would anyone care to place a wager on how much money was in there? yes, the swear jar has sat upon our kitchen counter for at least three years, collecting fees for errant profanities uttered primarily by me. it's probably been there even longer, come to think of it. bean and boo have become much more relaxed about enforcing their rules lately, and the swear jar has also served me well as an emergency cash source for lunch money, coffee money, school field trip money, etc. boo estimates that i owe it at least $50, probably more. all paper money had long ago been fished out of it at the time of the cashing in. m and boo took it to the coinstar machine at wild oats, where if you take your money in the form of an amazon gift certificate, you don't pay a fee. would anyone care to place a wager on what we're purchasing, en famile, with the help of the swear jar money?
