Why is envy a deadly sin?

My best friend is travelling this Grenoble this weekend coming, for an Oasis gig on Monday… supported by the stereophonics. I was okay about it at first, wanted him to enjoy himself but now I have this overwhelming feeling of envy that I'm not going with him.
At first I though I was wrong for feeling it but then I realised how natural envy is.
I envy Freddie Flintoff's wife,
I envy peoples skill on a guitar when I can only just grasp basic chords. I envy the clever people in my seminars who seem to know all the answers and seem to have read every book in the world ever!
I envy the freedom my younger brother had(only 13)- no worries about money or relationships.

I even envy my dog who seems to lay down in a corner asleep nice and warm whem I have to brave torrential rain to make it from my home in Coventry for the sake of one lecture somedays. In fact the more I think about it the more natural it seems. This makes me want to ask how something so natural can be seen as so wrong?

I know, what a rant about an oasis gig but I feel like I need to ask myself these things, if only in the hope of convincing myself that I am normal! I'm sure he will have a great time at this gig and I will be subjected to hearing about it for the next decade.And although I will always be enviable at least I have the comfort of knowing that I go to see Feeder 25th March so revenge is sweet!
