We Give Up
February 13, 2013
Today kicks off the season of Lent, which is typically a religious observance, but anyone can test their will power by giving up a guilty pleasure for 40 days.
People of Wallrich, what might you give up?
Aaron: Informing waiters of typos in menus. “That’s what she said” jokes.
Brian: While unaffiliated myself, it’s been a tradition I involuntarily abstain from whatever my Catholic wife gives up. I should know what that is by Saturday evening.
Chad: The elevator. Saying “ermahgerd” out loud.
Eihab: Fantasizing immortality.
Frances: Alcohol and fried foods. The booze is actually the easy part. But oh, my dear potato chips, I will miss you most of all.
Jessica: Celebrity news magazines. Don’t judge me.
Jeremy: Red meat, eating out in general.
Joe: Holding Super Quiz on the topic “Music of the ‘30s.”
Lila: Eff bombs. Really.
Lindsey: TV…. On weeknights … at home. I’m already making contingency plans. This won’t last long. But I’ll give it the old college try.
Nancy: Our nightly glass of Two Buck Chuck.
Steve: Giving up things.
Vickie: Clutter in my closet—meaning I’ll clean it and try my hardest to keep it clean for 40 days.
Wendy: Facebook. Maybe.
