Today’s post comes from Barbara in Rivertown.
A few weeks ago I was laughing out loud at the following exchange on The Trail:
Another funny moment in my “annals of kindness” I often leave a loaf of bread hanging on the door of our next door neighbor when she comes home from teaching music all day. I left a loaf Thursday. I just found a note telling me very tactfully that she has given up bread for Lent. 🙂
Guess she doesn’t want your wonderful bread to go to waste.
If I was your neighbor, I would never give up bread for Lent.
Of course, I’ve never given up anything for Lent, but if I did, I would give up something like liver or blue cheese.
Tut, tut, ljb, it’s supposed to be a sacrifice.
how did you guess that it wasn’t?
Just a hunch.
Although Lent has already come and gone, if you were going to give up something for Lent that was a true sacrifice, what would it be (knowing that it was just for a few weeks)?
What would be your faux sacrifice alternative, like ljb’s liver or blue cheese?
