Alright, so yesterday marked (no pun intended… get it? because Catholics got marked on their heads on Ash Wednesday? NAILED IT) the beginning of Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter where Catholics give up something. You know, because Jesus sacrificed his life on Easter for us, so we can give up chocolate for a month and pretend like it’s the end of the world.
ANYWAYS… I don’t like to always play by the rules (I’m kinda a bad boy like that… nbd) and Lent is no different. Like for instance, one time when I was younger, instead of giving something up for Lent, I was told you could DO something each day for Lent. So what did I do? I decided that my Lenten obligation would be to shoot a basketball 100 times each day. I HAD to, for God!
And honestly, while that may seem like a joke, it is really kind of a solid commitment. To put up 100 shot attempts while getting your own rebounds proved to be one hell of a task.
Anyway, this year is going to be similar… But you know, now that I know I won’t be an NBA player, my goals are a little different.
This year, instead of 100 shot attempts, I decided I need to drink at least one beer per day, and do one daas boot per day.
Why? Well, there’s only 37 days until BeerFest (April 13th) and this kills two birds with one stone.
BeerFest deserves to be trained for, since it’s THE LAST ONE EVER, and Lent deserves to have something you need to work kinda hard to do.
Some people would maybe say an obligation like working out would be better, some people might say praying or something religious would be better… But me? I’m gonna drink it up. And if you wanna get @ me over this, HAVE AT IT. I actually think this will be harder than giving something up (I already gave up drinking for a month and that was fine. Whatever… nbd, I don’t like to talk about it).
One Beer & One Boot. For 40 Days…
