I gave up drinking alcoholic beverages for Lent. Not drinking, all together.
Because you can only go like 3 days without water.
So I heard.
So just alcohol.
I chose booze for two reasons.
- I like drinking, so this is an actual sacrifice. I could have given up chocolate, but I don't really eat that much chocolate. As a matter of fact, I could still say I am giving up chocolate, because I'm pretty sure I haven't had any since Wednesday. I could have given up cursing, but I don't really cuss that much anymore and also, I enjoy it when I do do it. Alternatively, I could have given up meat - but that would have been a gigantic pain the the butt, up to and including dealing with a bunch of stuff that's in our fridge that Crockett would have had to consume all on his own.
- Drinking is expensive, both monetarily and calorically. Therefore it's good for me to stop, on both counts.
The thing is, it's spring break.
This was a stupid idea.
