Oaths

Through out my youth I took a series of oaths. To this day I have kept them religiously. I still remember several of them.

#1- In junior high I was a big soda drinker. One day I was drinking Surge from a wide-mouth can. As a joke, I poked my tongue into the can and accidentally sliced it open. I threw the can to the ground angrily and in my wrath I swore I would never drink Surge from a can again.

#2- Also in junior high during the Titanic craze I swore I would never watch that movie all the way through. I left the possibility of watching the boat-sinking scenes open.

#3- In high school, after a coke machine repeatedly ate my money, I swore I would never buy coke from the Lehi High School vending machines again. I went to great lengths to keep this oath, by asking others to buy the soda for me, or driving to Chevron to get my fix.

Interesting.
This reminded me of certain oaths in my life.
1. In junior high I promised myself I would be an actress. Thats working out pretty well so far I think.
2. When I saw the trailer for josie and the pussycats, i promised myself I would like it. And I did.
3. I promised myself I would play with off the cuff after the first time I saw one of their shows.
4. I promised myself that there were certain friends in my childhood I would never forget.
Just felt like sharing...
