Bring on the guilt and plaid.

*starts sweating*

2. The hatred you have toward plaid after wearing it for half of your life.

3. The need to still leave room for the Holy Spirit while you dance.

4. The worry that your skirt is two inches too short.

5. The fear that you might get pregnant by immaculate conception.

6. The never-ending fear of getting caught in a public display of affection.

8. The subconscious shout-out you give to St. Anthony anytime you lose something.

10. The question of whether or not you're drinking wine or THE BLOOD OF CHRIST.

11. The mistake of thinking you have Good Friday off in the real world.

12. The guilt you have when you don't make it to church EVERY Sunday.

13. The burning image of your school's logo you can't help but see on every polo you purchase.

14. The dilemma of whether or not your sin was a regular one or a mortal one.

Where would cutting someone off in traffic fall in the going-to-hell spectrum?
