This is the time of year when people think about celebration and sin.
For those of the Christian persuasion, Lent is coming in a few days and I’ve got friends who are worrying about what they can give up.
You’d think in a first world nation like America, this would be an easy task. Still, I heard some stressing amongst the church set this weekend so I’m brainstorming ideas.
Note: I couldn’t really tell them my first thought was to give up that stick jammed in their hiney.
I found these three sites of interesting Lent ideas:
- From Life Teen – 25 Creative Ideas
- From 300 Words A Day – 33 Things To Give Up For Lent
- From The Daily Green – 9 Things You Can Give Up For Lent That Will Help The Environment (I’m sorry people…I ain’t giving up my super-cushy Costco toilet paper)
Some of the ideas are things I’d NEVER give up (like the aforementioned T.P.) but some of them are lovely.
They recommend you give up:
- 10 frantic minutes a day
- Your place in line
- Your seat on the subway
- An argument
OK, that’s fine for those little tiny feel-good goals. But what about the over-achieving types with loftier goals like “Lust” or “Sin.” Those people are gonna need some extra help.
I bring to you THE SIN COLLAR. This baby is “fourteen inches of adjustable sin protection!” I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. It had me giggling all weekend. [Shazam!]
What are you celebrating or giving up this month? What do you think of that “Sin Collar?!” Enquiring minds love to know these things here at More Cowbell!
Happy Monday, y’all…
