So, we were having a conversation last night after dinner and multiple cocktails with friends about what to give up for Lent… They were debating back and forth and it went something like this…
Her: “Hey, why don’t we give up on avoiding the family? I know there are some crazies, but we could all learn to get along for a while.”
Him: “I’d rather give up oxygen.”
Her: “Hmmm…. You’re right… What else could we give up that’d be more realistic?”
And, almost nearly as funny as that, I considered for about one second giving up beer. When I threw that out there, everyone laughed even harder than we did at the abstinence comment. I’d rather give up oxygen, too.
