"You've got something on your forehead..."
"Oh yeah? Well, you've got sin on your soul!"
I will not tell you who said that, in order to not bring scandal to anyone.
Fine! It was me. In college. In my defense, I attended a Catholic (in name) college and I was irritated that so many other students had pointed out the "dirt" on my forehead.
A couple of years have passed, and I've noticed a few things.
One thing I've noticed is that no one likes a Judgey McJudgerson. Even if that person happens to be technically correct.
It's much more gratifying to enlighten someone; perhaps gain a friend for yourself AND Jesus!
Another thing I've noticed is that there seems to be many more people walking around with ashes on their foreheads than there has been in the past. I don't know if that's actually true or just my imagination, but, in the interest of keeping me happy, let's just say it is true, mmmmmkay?
A third thing that has come to my attention is that I haven't received one of these comments about my forehead in a few years. It seems more and more, that people are getting used to seeing us Ash-Heads walking around this time of year. Do you think it's the Internet making people more aware of what's going on around them? Again, make me happy and say, "yes!".
What am I trying to say? I. Do. Not. Know.
Just my brain exploding all over this blog since I can't check out Facebook and Twitter. It will calm down in the next week or two, no worries!
I would also love to hear ideas for post topics! If you have any for me, just leave a comment or shoot me an email!
For those of you wondering how I posted this to Facebook and Twitter, the answer is: magic.
Or, maybe I just clicked that "share" button at the top of this page. Care to do the same? :)
