Last night I watched the election results on CNN while enjoying a glass of sweet tea. Why is that significant, you may ask? Depends on which part of the first statement you are curious about. If you are referring to the election results, then they weren’t significant, really. No candidate really demolished another. So that means the campaigns will go on. I have to tell you that I kind of like this. If the race stays tight, then maybe my home state of Texas will become significant come March 4th when it will have it’s Primary election. That would in turn mean that the candidates would have to come down here to do some heavy campaigning. And I have no problem watching prominent politicians come to the Lone Star state to smooch a bunch of voter butt cheeks. Pucker up!

Now if you were more interested in why I was drinking sweet tea last night, well, I always drink sweet tea. In fact, I love sweet tea. Which brings me to Fat Tuesday. Which in turn brings me to that famed time of year where dedicated Catholics appear grumpier than usual. Yup. Lent. I am giving up sweet tea again this year. Along with red meat. And go to church every Sunday. I think that will be all I can handle this year.

I’m thinking of a self-imposed penalty should I falter in any of these. Maybe punish myself by shaving my head or depriving myself of sleep. I don’t know. Something that will keep going strong with this. I’m open to suggestions if you have any.

    I can’t believe you are giving up sweet tea again. Good Luck to you. Hope all is well. Have a great Lent.
