23 days down.  23 days to go.  This hasn’t been easy for me.  Especially the no drinking alcohol part.  That has been brutal!  Not because I’m a big drinker or anything, but because I have been bombarded with events that you need to drink at to have a good time.

For example, last Saturday was a bachelor party I had to attend.  Why was I not enthusiastic?  Can’t drink.  Where’s the fun there?  And St. Patty’s Day is around the corner.  A bunch of friends are going bar hopping, so naturally it would be stupid for me to go.  I guess I could be the designated driver, but why should I have to suffer by listening to all that sweet drunk talk?

Bottom line is, I am going to think twice thrice before sacrificing alcohol again.  Too hard.  And being Catholic, I should be drinking wine at church, right?  So, yeah.  It may have been a little counterproductive.

    The 40 days of Lent do not include Sundays, so you could start drinking after midnight and not be breaking your vows.

    That’s true. But I don’t want to half-ass it. I’m going to follow through the entire time.

Today's Deep Thought

  • If someone told me it wasn't "fashionable" to talk about freedom, I think I'd just have to look him square in the eye and say, "Okay, YOU TELL ME what's "fashionable." But he won't. And you know why? Because you can't ask someone what's fashionable in a smart-alecky way like that. You have to be friendly and say, "By the way, what's fashionable?"
