Almost Easter

During the Lent season, I give up something for the 40 day duration. For me it starts on Ash Wednesday and continues until Easter Sunday. In the past I have given up many things ranging from candy/chocolate to some other unmentionables (viewing certain kinds of videos).

This year, I chose to give up potato chips. And I have done very good so far. During these 40 days, I have rationalized that Cheetos or cheese puffs are really chips, or Wise Onion Rings aren’t technically a chip because they are circular and made of onions. Luckily I held out and talked myself off that ledge prior to diving head first into one of those bags.

Seeing that this whole weekend I will be busy, I bought my chip stash at the grocery store ahead of time. I may have gone overboard and bought 5 family sized bags of chips (all different flavors from plain to salt and vinegar). Ummm, not sure how much of this I will actually eat and how much of it will end up being brought go friend get togethers.

Once when I gave up candy, I stayed up till midnight on that Saturday night and then shoved Reese cups and Cadbury eggs into my mouth till I was sugared out.

I will probably have bloated fingers from the sodium intake from all the chips I will eat on Sunday. I’m too old to stay up till midnight.

P.S. A bishop once told me that Sundays don’t count on Lent because if you actually count the days and include Sundays it is 46 days. I didn’t abide by that rule. A sacrifice is a sacrifice right?

    I love this!
    I was raised catholic and I went to catholic school all my life. I should know all these steps. Nevertheless, I’ve never really given up anything. Nothing. Not even for my first communion.
    I think it’d be cool for me to swear off sweets for forty days (and beneficial) because I’m sure I’d totally lose one pound or three.
    Now I want salt and vinegar chips.
    I blame you.


    Happy easter!

    I used to give up things for lent when I was a kid, but as an adult, I never have. The chips sound good!
