St Patrick's Day !! March 15 2014
In a moment of what can only be described as sheer lunacy, while mediating in Church last Sunday, the first day of Lent, I was pondering what I could to give up for Lent. It had to be something that was meaningful and not too easy to achieve.
So, I decided to give up Alcohol, totally forgetting that looming just around the corner was St Patrick's Day. I always imbibed a pint or two of The Guinness on my annual excursion to the nearest Irish Pub, even when I was working in Kuala Lumpur. Of course I can not now go back on my word, I have to stay strong and not weaken. Needless to say I have taken some stick from the guy's at the Golf Club, and just about anyone I know.
To all of my friends in social media land, when you are out celebrating on the 17th, please drink a pint of The Guinness for me. I will be sitting indoors with a soda and a sandwich watching some mundane TV program. There is never anything good on TV on Monday's.
