40 days and 40 nights

New Orleans is a big Catholic town and after they go hard during the Mardi Gras season, everybody settles down for Lent.
Lent, in Christian tradition, is the period of the liturgical year leading up to Easter. The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer — through prayer, penitence, almsgiving and self-denial — for the annual commemoration during Holy Week of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the events linked to the Passion of Christ and culminates in Easter, the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Although I'm not Catholic, I like that folks round these parts go without this vice or that indulgence for 40 days. And since I'm Christian I figure I can get in on Lent and give up a few things.

1. beef & pork
2. texting/calling these nigs
3. french fries
4. relations

What are you giving up for lent?

hold on--I gotta call you out on this cause I coulda sworn I was just on the phone with you and heard and you ask the window man at Mcdonalds for large fries and nothing else...it wasn't even like you forgot and got the number 2 or something that happened to come with fries.

I've been missing in action on this blog for a moment otherwise I woulda called you out when you were ordering. Better get on to the confession part of being a catholic so you can start fresh :-)
