There is a Kenny Chesney song called “You and Tequila”. There is One Line in that song that gets me every time I hear it. It goes “It’s always your favorite sins that do you in”. Wow…
My favorite sins.
Being a Responsible Adult is still a challenge at times. I still struggle.
I have very few vices left. I quit smoking. I drink only on rare occasions. I don’t scour the bars looking for men. The drugs I did in my youth are just a distant memory.
The “hardest” thing I partake of now is a strong cup of coffee. The doctors have tried to take that away from me too. I’ve cut down, but it’s not completely gone.
Pleasures of the Flesh are still a favorite sin, not easily dismissed.
Another song comes to mind by Tim Mcgraw. The song is called “Better Than I Used to Be”. The line goes “I still got a few more dances with the devil”.
In general, I’m pretty happy with how Penny turned out. But oh, those Favorite Sins.
