Church of Christer Does Lent, Day Two
Early thoughts: I am going to get tired of bananas.
So, as per usual I hadn’t really planned this whole thing out yet. I sat down to get some work done yesterday and my stomach started making its usual grumbles. It was only two o’clock so my options were only fruit. But a quick look around the kitchen revealed that I had bought none.
I jumped in my car and decided to drive to Walmart to buy some of my favorite fruits. Walking up and down the produce aisles I realized something…
There are only about two fruits or vegetables that I like. Bananas are wonderful, apples are good, but outside of that, nothing.
Then I began looking for ways around my pledge.
“Dressing on a salad shouldn’t count against me.”
“Ooo what about flavored water?”
“Vegetable pizza has vegetables on it!”
“What about a veggie sub from Subway?”
It kind of reminded me of when I was a kid and we would invent games to play on the playground. Eventually when we didn’t like how something was going, we’d change the rules of the game. I was hungry and didn’t like the rules that I had put in front of myself, so I was going to change them.
In the end the original rules won out and I walked out of the store with a bag of apples and mostly green bananas (gross).
