So today is Ash Wednesday. For years and years, I would get black stuff smudged on my forehead at school, since having a super itchy uniform wasn't enough. This always confused me. And then giving things up for Lent. Why? Why would Jesus/god want us to give up stuff we like to prove we are good Catholics? Shouldn't he want us to enjoy our diet coke and candy and stuff? And then the not eating meat on Fridays. Shouldn't they ask us not eat meat ever instead? Why just Fridays? Maybe the church has stock at McDonald's... the fish filet wasn't doing very well, I guess. I'm sure that made sales sky-rocket. Okay, now I'm just babbling.
I still don't get it, though.
