I have these friends... absolutely awesome couple... with two awesome kids. Just good... fun... kind people all around. And.. they are prototypical southrons... very churchy southrons... but not in a judgemental way. These aren't gossips or busy bodies.
But they are... reserved.
So I was talking to them the other day about Mardi Gras and Lent and all... and I learned something amazing.
For Lent they have given up their marital inhibitions.
Turns out hanging out with us for Mardi Gras reminded them that they it was ok to let loose and have fun sometimes. They decided they had gotten old and gotten in a rut and it was time to get out of it.
I defy you to name a better vice to give up for Lent.
