Carlomagno gives up cursing for October. She decides that each time she utters a swear word she will put a dollar in a jar and donate the money to UNICEF. The fact that she only has $20 in the jar at the end of the month indicates some success in this endeavor. Most of the money was deposited during two separate incidents - one involving a parking space dispute, the other, a game of Scrabble. One of my colleagues at the College tried a similar experiment, but in order to "up the ante" she decided to donate the money to an organization she hated. It held her a bit more at bay.
