A new 7 deadly sins?

11 03 2008

According to this article from the ABC, “a high ranking Vatican official wants to update the church’s list of mortal sins.”

Now completely aside from the concept that some sins are worse than others, it seems unusual that you would think that an unchanging God would change his mind over time about which sins were ‘deadly’.

Anywho, the article goes on to say the list should be updated to include social sin. It should takes into account modern developments – issues such as genetic modification and pollution.

My question to you is, if you were to come up with a new ‘deadly’ sin, what would it be?

5. Have a napman-taking-power-nap1.jpg

There is nothing better than coming home after a busy Saturday morning and having an afternoon nap.

Maybe I’m getting old, but being out and about is really tiring! I need a little nanna-nap just to keep me going, especially if I have something to attend in the evening. It’s also the perfect way to relax after a busy week.

I like to nap in front of the TV (preferably cricket), but I also nap after reading in bed.

I would love to live in a country that practised the siesta. Mid-afternoon is such an unproductive time for me, I think we could all benefit from a little snooze. It’s the thing I miss most about pre-school.

Maybe we should petition the government to introduce “National Siesta Hours”? I’ll make an enquiry when I ask about the Feb 29 Public Holiday.

Are you a napper? Do you think I’m a boring, lazy old man?
