Raised Catholic, I have a profound sense of sin a lot of the time. When I was a kid, we ended every schoolday with the Act of Contrition, wherein we promised God to "sin no more, and to avoid the near occasions of sin."
See, a near occasion of sin isn't a sin exactly, it's just the kind of situation where a sin is kinda sorta likely to occur, and so one steers clear of such things so as not to be tempted.
Bet sometimes, sometimes, the near occasions of sin find you. Two of my faves, Steve Lawrenson and Milton and the Devils Party, are sharing the stage at IPO in Philly this year. Same night and everything.
And it's my birthday.
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa, what's a girl to do?
