Ahh yes, that time of year when we put aside something for the greater good. We cleanse ourselves to reach higher planes, and stand humbly without.
Those days when you attend morning mass on Ash Wednesday, and have someone at work say "Hey, you have a smudge of dirt on your forehead."
Really, fucknut? You have a smudge of brain in your ass.
And what shall it be this year? I've narrowed it down to giving up chocolate or giving up dating for Lent.
I'm thinking dating is gonna win. I can stand not dating... chocolate? Never! I mean, it falls right before V-Day (which to any single woman is not a day of love and flowers - it's ALL about the chocolate!), and up through Good Friday. (Heelll-looo - Easter candy. It's not like we don't eat the malted robin's eggs, mini snickers in the pastel wraps and Reese's peanut butter eggs from February 15 on.) Jeez.
Seriously, I don't know what I shall forego this year. I don't drink much (she types as she's digesting the beer from Thirsty Thursday at work *hic*). I don't gamble (except on the road every day with idiots - some things one cannot control.) If you give up sex, then have it with BOB**, does it count? I could give up dealing with stupid people, but it would be pretty lonely. And really, what would I do for that warm, fuzzy feeling of superiority?
I could give up eating foods that are bad for me, but what would I eat? I eat THE four food groups: bread, cheese, chocolate and potatoes. Are there any others?
I already gave up smoking. OOOH, oooohh, I could give up giving up smoking! Yea, that's the ticket! Probably not a very bright idea, though. And we must consider the superiority angle of kicking the habit. And it was a shitty one to kick.
Hmmm. How about giving up not partying, trashing about, and being of high morals? That would get old quickly. The morning after lasts about 3 days at my age. Getting hammered frequently would probably put me down through most of Lent. Up side, would not have to be conscious for most of it. *pondering*
Well, hell Bill, I'm still at a loss... Ideas, anyone?
