Talking Ear Gauges With the Big Guy

Backstory: I saw an abandoned cart on Fat Tuesday in the grocery store parking lot with a 12-pack of ginger ale on the bottom of it. No one was around, so I took it… And felt terrible immediately (but still didn’t go back to return it).
Mom: I’ll be at Trinity Cathedral at 6 tonight for Ash Wednesday service, in case you’d like to repent for the ginger ale thing.
Me: I would but don’t get out of work until 5:30 and I am driving this week so Dan would have no way home.
Mom: Dan can come with you! I’m sure he’d like to talk those ear gauges with the Big Guy!
Mom: btw, was thinking of giving up wine for Lent…but then at church the sermon was about not giving something up, but adding something in. so I bought a lenten daily reading book and that’s what I’m doing. And today’s reading was about being nicer.
Mom: So there.
Mom: How about you??? giving up stealing, perhaps???

      LOL!! This was great. And I think I need to rejoin the Catholic church now that they are encouraging people NOT give things up for Lent…

      I work at a Jeusit University. NOT giving things up for Lent is NOT happening here!

      We’re supposed to be giving things up, according to my school’s CCM priest. However, the meat thing is pretty negotiable – he said for special events, don’t worry about going meatless on fridays. If your birthday is friday, eat a steak. I like that outlook!
