Every year I give up something profound for Lent.
I feel that it is important to show my humility and make a sacrifice on an annual basis.
In previous years, I have given up such delights as paper clips, French swear words and zebra crossings.
There was a year that I gave up semi-colons – which would have been a nightmare if I was learning how to code back then.
And last year I gave up eyebrow grooming. A quarter of my eyebrow hairs grow twice as long as the others – I had proper old politician bushes by Easter.
Clearly I have thought long and hard as to what would be most suitable to give up for Lent this year. It took quite some time to decide but I have decided to give up:
Yes from now until Easter there will be no High 5’s. You can offer me a High 5 but I cannot attempt to complete it. I can offer you a High 5 but again, I cannot complete it.
Handshakes and High 10’s are fine.
Wish me well on my humble and profound sacrifice.
May I take this opportunity to thank Jesus, Moses Odubajo and Ronaldo for their continued inspiration throughout my life.
