not exactly a resolution ...

so i've been doing lots and lots of thinking lately. normally i don't do the new year's resolution thing, but i always think there are things we can all do to improve our lives and the lives of those around us. i've also been listening to the Satellite Sisters lately. they have a weekly segment about being more civil to each other, they call it the Civility Challenge. they talk about making small steps to creating a more civil world.

so i was listening to this the other day, and then took the elevator down to my little credit union downstairs. on the way back up the elevator, i encountered a FOUL SMELL that did not come from my body (as far as i am aware). now, i've been known to sneak a little toot now and then when i'm alone in the elevator, but this was the first time i realized the implications for someone who gets in the elevator later on ... i was hoping against hope that someone else wouldn't get in on the same ride and silently accuse me of this horrendous smell!

so in the spirit of the Civility Challenge, i am pledging in 2007 to not pass gas in elevators. so if you get in an elevator with me and there is a bad gas smell, i promise you IT WAS NOT ME.
