Drabble Challenge #62

Prompt: sacrifice

“What are you giving up for Lent?”

“Mom, I don’t follow those traditions anymore.”

“It’s good discipline. Shouldn’t you err on the side of caution? You should honor God’s traditions - just in case.”

“Which traditions do you want me to honor, Mom? Yours isn’t the only religion in the world, you know.”

“Honey, for my sake. Please, just humor an old lady. Give up something for CHRISTIAN Lent.”

“Lent’s about abstaining from meat. I’ll give up sex with my husband.”

“Seriously, Amanda Dawn!”

“Alright, Mom! For Christ’s sake, I’ll give up something! I give up…my belief in YOUR God!”
