Lent finished early

It first started at the Raptors game on friday. My father got free Mrs. Vickies potato chips with his sandwich. He didn’t want them. I looked at them and thought about Lent. I thought about the whole exercise and how it was an exercise to stay away from temptation. The chips in front of me weren’t temptation. I couldn’t allow them to go to waste. So I ate them.

On sunday, I found myself having munchies with Bobette’s Dad and suddenly some tasty sounding chips were pulled out. I had to try them and the fast was finally broken! Then to make matters worse, on monday, I was offered chocolate milk at somebody’s house and I gave in. I suck at this. I usually do better at fasting! 😦

#78 “101 Things to do before you die” Drink a vintage wine

How tough can that be? Well except for the fact that I don’t drink wine.

    Drink a vintage wine??? Dude, that’s Sunday dinner at my house.

    You know, you can get a vintage at the LCBO for like 20-30 bucks. Okay, it’s probably piss, but still. Ain’t expensive. Besides, this is something you can do with Bobette for you as part of your six month aversary or something.

    Drinking a vintage wine should be a piece o’ cake, bud! Expensive, but worth it. DO drink it with food, however; the wine enhances the flavor of food and vice versa. To drink it without food won’t be a pleasant experience. Well — not AS pleasant. (I do it all the time, but not vintage wines.)

    It’s a bummer about Lent, but just like the Bears and Lions — and this year, the VIKINGS — say: There’s always NEXT year. 😉

    I thought Lent went until Easter? I’ve never been Catholic so I don’t know. And if you stay away from temptation, how is that tempting? Shouldn’t it be about resisting the temptation that’s right in front of you? I’d have made a lousy Catholic.

    Try the vintage wine! Try something like a Cabernet Sauvignon with a really good steak dinner. Awesomeness. WIGSF’s right – you could do it like an anniversary thing with Bobette. 🙂
