An open letter to the Pope

Dear Pope Benedict,

I'm writing today to ask you to reconsider the rules about eating fish on holy days and Fridays during Lent. I appreciate that giving up red meat on those days is supposed to be a sacrifice.

That is totally lost on my family.

When I told LittleG this morning that we would be having shrimp for dinner tonight, she ran through the house yelling "Strimp for dinner!! Yay, strimp!!!!"

What should be a sacrifice turns out to be a treat here at Casa Garcia. You think next year you could assign something like broccoli or asparagus?
