Sisters, Lent and Natural Penances

Setting: Galadriel, Arwen, Puff and Frodo on subway train, early this morning.  Frodo eating arrowroot cookies  two fisted, Puff reading  Percy Jackson and the Olympians II: Sea of Monsters, Galadriel and Arwen are bickering as sisters are wont to do. 

Puff(annoyed at the bickering): Ya know, yesterday was Ash Wednesday, and Sunday is the First Sunday of Lent, I know, why don't you two be nice to each other for Lent?

Galadriel answers first and Arwen answers without missing a beat.

Galadriel:  Ah........ No. Arwen: No, I`m good

Galadriel: Actually she (nodding towards Arwen) thought of that, and decided against it.

Puff:(to Arwen) What? You thought about being nice to your sister; figured it would be too hard and you would be setting yourself up for failure so you said: "Nuts! to that" 

Arwen: Yeah, pretty much.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
