Not So Fast

Is there any time during the year during which you fast, for personal and/or religious reasons? If so, how do you work with it?

The whole idea fascinates me. I think the closest I’ve come (besides fasting for doctors’ visits) is giving up x for Lent when I was a kid, but considering one can still eat and drink… it’s not that close at all.

My youth group did a 30 hour famine to raise money for starving people in 3rd world countries. We were only allowed to drink water. After the 30 hours were over, we would have pizza. We spent the day watching movies and playing games.

Years ago when I was a devout little Cat'lick, I used to fast on Fridays. However, one year I hit upon a really cool solution. I gave up being Catholic for Lent. Thus far I've lasted 31 years!

Ciao,

Some of my co-workers and I each gave up something for a month on a bet. Like an idiot, I gave up caffeine. Trust me, I can't think of anything worse than Diet Coke withdrawal...it was BRUTAL!



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
