Lent is a time of spiritual renewal in which many give up things to make themselves a better person through sacrifice. So for the next 40 days, I’m giving up:
- On Heroes. Actually, I gave up on it a long time ago.
- Watery beer
- Tagging people for memes
- Conservative talk radio
- Liberal talk radio
- My plans for world domination – That and Heroes were cutting into my time to watch Battlestar Galactica.
- The Cincinnati Bengals – Actually, I gave up on them a long time ago
So what if these are things I don’t indulge in. If I still don’t do them for 40 days, aren’t I a better person?
Actually, I think I became a better person the day I stopped listening to politics on talk radio.
