So, yesterday was Ash Wednesday and though I couldn’t quite gather up the guts to go to church, I decided to give something up for lent. After much careful deliberation, I thought to NOT get angry for the next six weeks. Tough deal and definitely not going to happen. So I decided to quit on the next thing that I do best…..COMPLAINING. Yes, for the next 6 weeks, I will do my best not to complain about anything, be it the dirty plates my food is served in, or the taxi driver who crossed me illegally. This may be the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I can get angry but not complain?!!!! Arghh! I can feel a complaint coming up already…..
To make things even worse, to make up for all the years that I missed out on lent, I’ve decided to give up two things this year. Anyone who knows me, knows by now that aside from geting angy and complaining, I have one vice that’s most annoying; My use of the F word! For six weeks, little miss potty mouth will not utter a single F#$%. And to prevent me from cheating, I won’t be allowed to say my signature fudge, which I put in place of the F word when in polite company. This should prove interesting.
Anyway, just wondering if you lot will be giving up anything for lent? And if yes, what it’ll be? Anyone doing multiple losses like me? I think there’s a betting pool on how long I will be able to keep from saying the F word rofl.
