I have come to terms with the fact that even though I no longer observe or practice the Catholic faith, I will always “be” Catholic – as my therapist says, “Once a Catholic, always a Catholic.” (She also always thanks The Church for supplying her with many clients, LOL!)
Anyway, in a weird sort of Catholic flashback, I realized that today I will be committing several of the Seven Deadly Sins:
For those unfamiliar with the list, click the image above to review a brief but concise description of these mortal sins “…believed to destroy the life of grace and charity within a person and thus create the threat of eternal damnation.”
Pretty heavy stuff, right? No wonder they are called “deadly.”
The thing is, today I shall commit four of the seven sins.
1. SLOTH – Today is my day off and, so far, I have done pretty much N-O-T-H-I-N-G all day. Nothing. Strike one.
2. PRIDE – Earlier today, I finished a project that I have been putting off for a while. With the final keystroke, I completed the job and felt a profound sense of accomplishment, pride if you will. Yikes – strike two.
3. GLUTTONY – Later tonight, my beloved M and I are having dinner with our two “besties.” They are amazing hosts and, not only do I always eat too much of the fantastic meals they prepare, I also…
4. ENVY – …their outstanding culinary skills. I mean, they are kick-ass cooks. Holy cow, two more deadly sins simply by eating dinner with friends! Strikes three and four!
So, listen, there are still three deadly sins I (hopefully!) will NOT commit today, although I did get a bit angry earlier at the grocery (Wrath?), bought a scratch-off lottery ticket hoping I would win $10K (Greed?) and, well, my Sweetie got a new haircut today and looks even MORE handsome than usual (Lust?)
OMG. I am in BIG trouble!!!
