A few months ago I was talking with my family, and self control came up, specifically, how curious are you. I told everyone that I have full control over my curiosity, and they took that as a challenge. On fathers day, my daughter brought some fathers day gifts, and a birthday present. My Bday is in October. This birthday gift is unwrapped, and sitting in a paper grocery bag on an end table in the living room. I can only see what it is if I open the bag. My family thinks that this will drive me crazy. They have assured me that I will like the present because it is something I have mentioned it in the past. My daughter has told me that I do not have to wait until my birthday, if I want the gift early, just take it out of the bag. This past weekend we had a family thing, and everyone was told what was going on, and to not look in the bag. Every last one of them had to go look in the bag. All my brothers and their wives, nephews and nieces cannot believe that I have not looked in the bag yet, nor that I can wait until my birthday to do so. For me it is simply a matter of self control, I have not touched the bag, not lifted it up, nor looked inside, I feel no compulsion to do so. I have no problem waiting, no matter what is in the bag. But everyone else in the family couldn't stand not knowing what was in the bag, even though it is not theirs. It got me to thinking, what would you do? Look in the bag or not look in the bag?
