The Storm Before the Calm

Fat Tuesday carries a reputation as arguably the most decadent night on the calendar. It's the day made famous by Mardi Gras when all revelries are indulged before giving them up for the season of lent.

Even when not related to a season, it seems like people do this...they'll go out for a heavy night of drinking before they get shipped off to boot camp or somewhere where alcohol is off limits. I would go on a very long run if I needed some sort of medical care that would prevent me from running for a while. These behaviors are almost like we're putting some of this activity in a bank. Like we can get some sort of future utility out of the extreme actions taken today.
