Is fish on Friday, or in my case, fish pie with added shrimps, still pentitential if you really like fish?
Never really got how fish could be somehow "worse" than meat. I like both with equal enthusiasm...in the case of shellfish, slightly more, in fact.
I suppose I could try an outright fast on Fridays instead, but it's just that...well...I get really hungry, and then my brain goes all wobbly and I can't write and my editors get mad at me because my copy is also wobbly and then I come back here and (in the absence of children) have to take it out on you guys...
and nobody wins.
