What Im Giving Up For Lent



So this morning on the way to work from church, I was listening to a local radio station. And they were talking about what they gave up for Lent. One gave up sex & one caffeine. Of course, being in a holy state of mind, I was thinking about the #1 thing that comes between me and God 99.9% of the time. And I realised during mass that it's guys. Guys take up way to much of my time & energy. And so I decided to give them up. So I called the radio station and for a glorious 2 minutes I was on air, live for all of Atlanta to hear. And I told them I was giving up dating. Of course, they took it one step further and said I shouldn't take to any guys at all for 40 days & 40 nights, unless I really had to (work, my dad, drive through guy).



So they took down my phone number and in 40 days they're gonna call me back and ask how my 40 days went. I'm not so keen on the "don't talk to guys for 40 days - that seems a little extreme, but I'm not going on a date for the next 40 days. Thats my plan.

So what did you give up for lent?

Haha, yeah... I kinda agree with you - that does seem REALLY extreme, but they are radio people and they gotta keep people interested somehow! Worse comes to worse, you can always flub about how it went. Although, that's not exactly very Catholic, either. =/

PS: Kyle & I went to Mass yesterday! I am still ADD during Mass as I've always been, but hopefully soon Kyle will be more interested in going every week.

The 40 days will fly by. But I agree the not talking to guys seems a little extreme.
