Me and 50 Cent

The rapper 50 Cent called his autobiography Get Rich or Die Tryin'. I could call the last month or two of my life "Behave or Get Poor Tryin'". In order to rid myself of bad habits, I have decided to play my greed against my bad habits by paying US$1.00 to the person who catches me doing something bad. The list of bad behaviors is: Swearing (S__T or F__K, US$5.00 penalty if I swear within earshot of children), having unhealthy snacks after noon, having caffeinated beverages after noon, and getting in to work after 9:00AM. The good news is that my rate of swearing is going down. The bad news is that I'm burning $ like Congress in an election year. I'm trying to think of it as "buying good habits". (If you are curious, you can always look at the current stats)
