What Could I Give Up?

I've always been fascinated by people who celebrate Lent - those who give away their favorite habits for a set period of time. When I was little I had a friend who gave up sugar (oh, the horror!) and a few years ago another friend gave up alcohol (double horror!). Now, granted, I don't technically celebrate Lent, but perhaps I should. Let's see....what could I give up? Diet Pepsi? NEVER! Um, Facebook? Yeah, right. TV? Well, I haven't watched much anyway, so that could be do-able. How about just flaky men (or men in general)? Yeah, that could work. What are they doing for me lately anyway, except making me cry? Not a whole lot, that's for sure.

i'm no lent celebrater (although i've been tempted) but i believe the point is to give up something that would be hard for you - like a real sacrifice. maybe that's why i've never done it. isn't today mardi gras? so wouldn't we be done if we were doing it? maybe i can give something up for the rest of today and call it good. =) by the way, giving up flaky men forever is not a bad idea. oh and for that matter - giving up flaky people is a good idea. male or female.
