“You’re going to do what?”
“I’m going to eat less than 15 grams of sugar for ten days,” I reply exasperated. It’s the second conversation like this in as many minutes.
“Why ten days?”
“It’s all I can promise I might commit to.”
“You are honestly going to last ten days? .... “
“Hey, look, if Jesus can go in to the desert for 40 days without food or water, I can do ten days without sugar.”
“So, what you’re saying is, you’re like twenty percent Jesus.”
“If you want to call me that. I mean, hey, if the toga fits…”
“You wannan grab some ice cream later? .... ... Oh.. Wait…”
It’s going to be a long ten days but dammit, if Jesus can do it SO CAN I.
Now I just need to work on my water to wine skills.
It’ll be about twenty percent tasty.
