Just... fuck.

A friend came in from out of town and we went for our sushi.  We placed our first order; she got teryaki chicken and a couple handrolls and I got my first two handrolls.  She grabs some pieces of chicken and said I could have some.  I had my rolls, looked at the chicken, grabbed a couple.  Ate one.  Yum.  Ate two - and mid-bite I stopped, gasped, threw my hand up to my mouth and froze.

I failed.  My heart sunk.

Apparently my head wasn't with me today; I'm still used to the thinking of eating meat.  To my credit, since I didn't seem to be with it today, I also accidentally poured soy sauce into my green tea mug *blank stare*  Well, we had a few laughs about it at the time.. it was pretty funny.  I don't know what's going on with me.

There's a caveat: Sundays is a time of.. of... is there a name for it?  A day when you can have one of the things you've given up for Lent.  I never intended to use Sundays as a 'freebie'.. but I will have to get over today and just use my 'Sunday' today.  Makes sense, yes?

That's all.  Better luck next time.

Oh no! Can you start over this Wednesday? Or add some days at the end, like making up snow days at school? That way you wouldn't have failed.

I totally did that yesterday with chocolate. A friend gave me this rice crispie square with little candies on top of it. I took a bite and I was standing there chewing, thinking, "Why does this taste so good?" Because of the CHOCOLATE, silly!


I was mid-bite. I spit it out, but I'm sure I did consume some chocolate.

Onwards and upwards!

Bix - It's not necessary. Lent is actually voluntary, so I don't have any "hard time" to do to make up for falling. I may extend it a day, that's a good idea.

Wendy - Ha! The same thought crossed my mind, "Why does this taste so good?" Oh yeah....

Well, tomorrow's another day :)
