"This year I decided to give up watching the film 'Larry Crowne' for Lent. This will be easy because I have never seen it."

Every time Lent comes around I struggle with what to give up for 40 days and 40 nights. Do I give up chocolate? Alcohol? Do I give up meat or dairy? Yet, no matter what I decide to give up I always find that around 20 days in I crack and give up my fast. I always end up feeling guilty so this year I decided to make a change. This year I decided to give up watching the film “Larry Crowne” for Lent. This will be easy because I have never seen it.I know what many of you are thinking, “Jim, how can you possibly go 40 days and 40 nights without watching the box office smash, Larry Crowne? A film in which Tom Hanks rides a moped?” Well, it’s pretty simple. “Larry Crowne” came out in June 2011 so I have gone almost 6 years without seeing it. I think I can go another 40 days.
I know myself. I know that come mid-march I’ll be begging anyone and everyone around me to let me watch “Larry Crowne”. It doesn’t matter that I have no idea what it is about or that all I know about it its title and that Tom Hanks is on a moped at some point. I know that I love to break Lenten promises which means I will throw an absolute fucking fit if I don’t get to see “Larry Crowne” within three weeks from now.
I’m calling upon my God to help me. I pray to him to keep me from watching “Larry Crowne”.
