Sitting here watching Top Gun and thinking random thoughts. Bare feet propped up in my new arm chair, wearing my favorite old jeans and a hoodie that I never would be caught dead in public in. Guess that makes me gay? Maverick just took the Polaroid of the Mig and is heading back home. Cougar just freaked out and Goose is trying to talk him down. Man! I haven't seen this film in forever. It's a classic.
So people at church and different friends have been talking about Lent quite a bit. I was not raised with any high church traditions besides guilt and am not really familiar with the church calendar and all the different traditions. I guess the idea of "giving up" something in order to make space for something new or good is great and all, but I am a complete stranger to self denial. I guess I can understand the idea of "wait" at least a bit, but the concept of "no" is anathema.
I don't want to give up anything. I never have. So I am not. I don't mind adding something good, but the temporary sacrifice of something I enjoy makes no sense to me at all. Maybe someone can explain it to me?
I'll be back later. Gotta watch Top Gun and then get some dinner. Ciao!
PS: Val Kilmer back in the day...hawt.
