    What are you giving up for Lent?

    I'm thinking fast food (not that I eat much as it is), cokes and sweet tea.

    I've never done this before. Hmm. I'll have to think about it.

    I'll do what I do every year.

    I'll give up Lent for Lent.

    Brussel sprouts, watching Golden Girls reruns and reading astrophysics textbooks.

    Eating out in any way, shape or form.

    Ask not what I'll give up for Lent, but what Lent will give up for me?


    Damn, Preppy.

    Also giving up eating out. I'll probably give up coffee/soda/caffeine in general, too. Starbucks is a guilty pleasure when I'm really tired at work.

    Aw, Mikey. I like keeping my wife happy. That's why I have one.
     
  10. Quitting cokes is no walk in the park. The first couple of months after I quit were awful -- the cravings more than the headaches.

    I haven't given up coffee -- ahem, Starbucks -- but I've gone nearly 14 months without a coke.

    Oh. So that's the secret. I always thought it was sitting the woman down on the bed and telling her all the ways Boy Meets World can be viewed as a metaphor for life in this crazy, mixed-up planet of ours.

    (True story: While walking through the city in the pouring rain with a girl last week, I began talking about that very subject and how I always loved that show because I "grew up with it." About half-way through, even though she loves the show, she stopped listening to me. I asked, "You don't really give a shit, do you?" She said, "I've heard you tell me about this before. We dated, remember?" I said, "Oh, yeah. ... You know what I did last night? I spent two hours studying Home Improvement." She didn't even laugh. I think it made her sad.)

    It's worse than I thought.
