Why choose?

A man without a vice, is a little too nice. That is a saying I just made up to justify drinking beers and over indulging in diet soda. It isn’t simple, and perhaps one day before I enter the seminary or after I die, I might give them both up. Sarah has her fingers crossed but I remind her that this isn’t about deprivation, its about eliminating the superfluous and focusing on what’s left. Shouldn’t beer and soda be left?

(I can’t seem to convince myself that either of these are a luxury, though I would be curious of anyone out there that has kicked the habit and why.)
