Lent begins today, which means that us good little Catholic folk spend forty days without necessities such as Diet Coke to show Jesus just how much we appreciate the sacrifice of his life. Although my Catholic faith leans more cafeteria than by-the-book, lent is one of the traditions that I enjoy supporting. I might give up Target – and if you only knew just.how.much I adore that place, you would know how big my sacrifice is. It pains me to think about it, which is usually a good sign that I am in need of withdrawal. Any suggestions (besides hookers and booze, those are here to stay)?
