The other evening while Hannah, Aleen and I were sitting around in the living room I started looking up name meanings. One of the website offered helpful nicknames where I discovered that somewhere, in some strange land, people use Peffi as a nickname for the name Stephanie. I shared this with them and they laughed and said they would start calling me Peffi. To which I quickly shot back, “you owe me a dollar every time you call me Peffi.”
Without missing a beat, Aleen pointed at me and said that I owed her a dollar every time a “ha!” came out of my mouth. You know, as in laughing. One of my favorite things to do. So we began to compile a list of things that warranted a dollar paid, targeting the things we do the most frequently and enjoy the most. Kind of cruel, but it was funny. Plus I’m definitely not actually giving anyone a dollar for anything. Except today when I gave Hannah a dollar to help with parking. That’s different, though.
So. What do you think your thing would be? Some examples: every time you apologize unnecessarily, every time you say the word “okay,” every time you bust out in song.. and so on and so forth.
Also, I finished the entire Hunger Games series. Who else has, so we can geek out about it?
