My friend Elizabeth is Catholic, so she gets to do cool stuff like give things up for Lent.
"You're giving up swearing? That's cool," I say to her.
"You can give up stuff, too," she replies.
Uh-oh. Maybe I shouldn't have started this conversation.
Next thing I knew, I'd committed to go without my favorite thing for 40 days--potato chips.
Because it's my goal, I can make up my own rules. No potato chips means no potato chips or any other kind of chips--Doritos, Sun Chips, Cheetos, etc. However, I am allowing myself tortilla chips (no, I do not consider Doritos to be a tortilla chip; I'm not actually sure what they are).
It's been hard--especially since one of my very skinny coworkers often walks around with a full-size bag of Lays, carrying it like a lunch sack--but I'm almost there. Easter is the end date. I'll celebrate with a bag of chips.
