So I decided to give up fried food for lent this year. Since I am a very picky eater and chicken strips are usually on every menu... I have sufficiently cut my food intake by a lot. (The Bif thinks it is amazing I don't weight over 200 lbs.) But giving things up is not supposed to be easy... so that is why I chose this. I am also giving up Pepperoni Pizza. I will also be making an effort to eat salads for lunch. (Note: I have only been eating salad for probably the last 8 months. I don't like vegetables... they taste like I took a bite of the ground. It is like eating grass.) You get the point.
But the true story begins here... I have been working crazy hours and when I am not working I am running around trying to do errands and have a little fun (i.e. going to a concert) so I have paid very little attention to when Lent actually started. The Bif had a King Cake in the office last week and without checking just assumed that was the sign Lent had started. He told me this so I started my non-fried food diet... a week early! I didn't question him on it because A) he has a huge head that is filled with a huge brain so he usually is right about things like this, B) I didn't have time to check, and C) I was excited (slightly) about my healthy diet. Weird. But none the less, I show up to work today and receive an e-mail that says "King Cake in the Bizhub. Happy Fat Tuesday." So at least I am now with the times... instead of ahead of the times.
p to the s. Happy Birthday to my Little Bro! Welcome to your twenties!
