Every year at this time, I begin to think about something…
What should I give up for Lent?
This year, Lent begins relatively late (March 9th), but I have already begun to think about what 46 day quest of sacrifice and ultimate glory that I shall traverse this year.
In the past I have given up meat, and last year I gave up all forms of bread and pasta.
My willpower is such, that neither of those abstinences provide anything more than mere discomfort.
So…this year? I am setting my sights higher, and want to have a real challenge. I am asking you to help me.
Do you have any ideas as to what I should give up between Ash Wednesday and Easter Morning in order to test my holy mettle?
I have a few ideas…
I could give up meat (as I have done before).
I could give up bread/pasta (as I have done before).
I could give up one of the following:
Alcohol…That would be tough, especially since I live with a bitter, heathen woman.
Cigarettes…That would be even tougher. Oh Dear God, I do love my Marlboro Lights.
Sex…Ha…Just never mind that idea. I may live with a bitter, heathen woman, but damn…she’s hot!!
NOS/Energy Drinks…You may not see this as difficult, but trust me…NOS is my crack.
Cussing…Either in spoken or written form, this would probably be the most difficult in comparison to all of the aforementioned suggestions.
Blogging…That would be rough, and what fun would it be if I couldn’t post abut how fucking crazy I was going!?
So, those are some suggestions. Let me know what you think, or if you have something else in mind with which to torture me during the 46 days of Lent, lay it on me.
I’ll be home all day on this introspective Monday, so let me know what ya think.
Yours in Christ, and as always…
