Today is the beginning of Lent. You go without something for forty days, like bread, booze, whatever … it’s a pretty dope thing to do actually … IF you do it right.
How does one “do it right?” Well the key is you need to make bets with your friends to see who can actually complete 40 days of depriving yourselves of something, and then you each go out of your way to sabotage each other. Sweet sweet treachery, the sign of real friendship.
So here are the top five suggestions of things to give up during lent.
This is what Fred is giving up. It’s not JUST bread either. Muffins, cake, bagels, croutons, pizza, you name it. ANYTHING with bread is a no go. PERIOD.
This could actually follow through into the rest of your life … AFTER the forty days are done. Imagine how less annoying this planet would be if you didn’t have to listen to people moaning and bitching all the time.
Your Cell Phone
This one is the toughest on the list. We’ve become so wrapped up in those wee little computer boxes that we get panic attacks when they’re not in our pockets. It’d be so freeing to just go without … wouldn’t it?
Mel did the math and figured she consumed over 5000 calories of alcohol a week! A WEEK! So for science she’s putting the bottle down for forty days. Just think of the money you could save and the sweet abs you’d have at the end.
Plus this would be a good one to try and sabotage for one of your friends. Lent is about nothing if not victory!
Don’t do meth. Giving it up for lent will make everyone happy … except your dentist, he’s relying on you for steady work.
