Filet-O-Fish Friday

At the risk of being absolutely condemned by The Great I Am America, I am not a Roman Catholic. However, I have ridden the coattails of devout Catholics by enjoying the McDonald's discount of Filet-O-Fish sandwiches on Fridays during Lent. Until last year, the McDonald's restaurants in my wide-ranged locality sold the sandwiches on Filet-O-Fish Fridays for one dollar. They've since upped the price to $1.29 to offset costs and probably because of the overall crappiness of the U.S. Dollar.

Anyhow, my hat's off to the devout and their yearly period of self-denial, providing me the irony of indulging a relatively mild form of gluttony at a discount.

Needless to say, I can't wait until St. Patrick's Day.
