The fact that it's only one day, followed by 40 days of Lenten suffering?
I mean, seriously, I would much rather enjoy 40 days of out-and-out gluttony and only ONE day of denying myself awesomeness!
(Which I fully understand defeats the purpose, but still...)
I siss out every year when it comes to giving something up for Lent, but I also know my flaws and weaknesses. I also know I am one of THE most awful, horrible people who have ever walked this Earth, so by making it sting a little I feel I'm redeeming myself.
I toyed around with the idea of giving up beer but know full-well that I'll never be able to stick to it, and then I'll be drunk and feel like a sinner. No good.
I could give up playing my bass, but that would only result in my band kicking me out. That's no good either.
Cheeseburgers it is, again. I give up cheeseburgers. This is gonna SUCK.
So if you'll excuse me, I'm off to gorge myself while I still can.
Are you giving anything up for lent? Tell me what you're planning to cut out on my Facebook
