This Entry is from Ash Wednesday. I left work early today. I just couldn't deal. As we were pulling into the parking lot, I felt like crying, and I started to sweat...I told Matt that I didn't think I could do it. I got a ride home from Kevin; I just worked 2 1/2 hours. This morning I went to church w/ Matt for Ash Wednesday. It was, well, unnerving. I'm freaked out by how similar all Catholic churches are. They all have the same misselette (or however you spell it) and the same format. I guess in some way it's a little reassuring to know that all Catholics all across the country are doing the same thing, but my free spirit Protestant self just thinks of the Borg. Here's an interesting phenomenon. Every single time I go to church, my nose starts to run. Doesn't matter which church, doesn't matter which time of year. Within 5 minutes of sitting, I'm sniffling and surreptitiously wiping my nose. Drives my dad nuts incidentally. Matt's mom always hands me tissues. I remembered my own today, but let me tell you, that's a weird thought process: "Oh yeah, got to remember tissues, I'm going to church and I'll need to blow my nose." I'm probably possessed or something. That would explain the sweaty palms and freaky dreams after Mass this morning.
