Lent ’08

February 6, 2008 at 9:38 am 3 comments

Yikes. Lent snuck up on me this year– I didn’t realize it started this week until Monday when I noticed Mardi Gras decorations up at the local Cajun restaurant. This year I’m giving up two things:

  • Red Meat
  • Text Messaging While Driving

Red meat builds off Lent ’06 where I gave up beef. Text messaging while driving has no precedence, but it is a bad habit I should definitely curb.

For the last 4 years, desserts have always been on the list. This means this year I can actually have cake on my birthday. Others may benefit as well. Apparently my giving up desserts presents a hardship to my loved ones. A couple of years ago, I called my mother one morning.

“Hey Mom, I have a question for ya.”

“Oh gawd,” she groaned, “Are you trying to decide if a pancake is a dessert again?”

My question was not related to Lent at all, but her reaction certainly said a lot about our past conversations. 🙂

    Text-messaging while driving should definitely be illegal.

    Yeah, text messaging while driving = BAD! You should give that up permanently, not just for lent.
