Lent: Day 2

My usual coffee shop:

I turn down the barista's suggestion. "The usual?"

She helps me survey the teas for a caffeine free option.

Conversation leads to mentioning why I am not and will not be getting my usual "coffee for here and a refill".

The manager steps from the little office desk to the counter to enter the conversation.

"Did I just overhear that you're giving up caffeine for Lent?" "Yeah! It is true." "Good luck," she says with a tinge of sarcasm.

As she walks away she says with a wry smile, "I gave up Catholicism!"

I walk away laughingly thinking,

"She thinks I'm Catholic."
