In a conversation retold by Nanny:
As James was visiting for the afternoon he was his normal chatty self.
James was telling Nanny how he gave up cookies for Lent. He said it was really hard, but he hadn't eaten any.
Nanny bragged over how proud she was of him. She told him how great it was that he was able to restrain himself.
And that's when he turned on her...
He looked very intently at her and said "Nanny, what'd you give up?"
She explained that she was Baptist and that the Baptist didn't give up anything for Lent.
James very exasperated replied "WHAT??? YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR YOU, AND YOU CAN'T EVEN GIVE UP A COOKIE??!"
That's when she wised up and said "No James, I gave up lobster."
She'll never think of cookies the same!
