Well, This Isn’t So Bad

Day one of Lent and so, far, so good. I haven’t had a chocolate craving yet and, although I often catch myself automatically reaching for an imaginary bottle of Diet Pepsi; I am making do with bottles of water and a super-sonic sized iced tea. In short, I’m doing great! Feeling good! Sunshine! Unicorns!

I make no promises for such a sunny attitude tomorrow as, by then, my body will have woken to the fact that I am holding out on it and rebellion shall ensue, no doubt tossing me into A Mood.

Speaking of things that toss me into A Mood; this morning, I spent fifteen minutes trying to politely remove a pair of Jehovah’s Witnesses from my front porch. To their credit, they were a persistent couple of proselytizers but, in the end, they were no match for my declaration that Xenu will descend to the Earth in his spaceship to carry us all home any minute now and, didn’t they want to be a part of that glorious moment? And, don’t worry, Xenu forgives all and embraces all and, hey! Where are you two going? I wasn’t done yet!

I am nothing if not resourceful in a crisis.

Also, I totally believe that God will forgive my little moment of theater because, helloo, I gave up chocolate for my faith.

Let’s see the Jehovah’s top that.
