Lately, I’ve been extremely weary of all these Facebook games that I’m seeing. The ones that start with “let’s have some fun…
” I’m like oh no, no fun please. I’m so grateful for the yellow face “eye roll” emoji which I am tempted to put in the comments. I don’t want to recall details in a “yes or no” format about the birth of my children. Or all the daredevil things I’ve ever done, which are basically a long list of “no’s” because I have an aversion to pain and early death. Seriously, no one cares. So I have no tattoos and have never been skydiving.
Recently, I did see a “let’s have fun” post asking me to list 10 things I hate that everyone else seems to love. Okay, finally now this is a useless waste that I can get behind.
So here’s my list:
- The Beatles
- Peep toe shoes/ flip flops
- American Idol/The Voice
Of course, I can’t expand on all these. But I’ll hit a few of them.
The Beatles — They’re a bit before my time but they just seem very average. Four dorky, nondescript guys singing catchy tunes. Heck, the Osmond’s had more pizzazz than them. Or the Monkees! Maybe they weren’t really singing but gosh, their hijinks were entertaining.
Jeans — No matter how many pairs I buy and how great the fit is, they are just not comfortable. I long for the day they’re on the “don’t” page of a fashion magazine.
While we’re discussing fashion – peep toe shoes! Ugh. I guess you’re sensing a general theme here: I don’t like uncomfortable clothing and/or shoes. Wearing them is like shoving all your toes through a tiny hole that really could only accommodate one toe. And flip-flops, I just do not enjoy something stuck between my toes while I’m walking. It’s like feast or famine between the peep toe and the flip-flop, too much coverage or not enough, but they are both a source of walking woes to me.
Watermelon — It’s not really fair to single out the poor watermelon because it’s actually all fruit that I hate. I know it looks so tempting and colorful and I really want to like it. I want to like it but one bite and the consistency just does me in. People really get crazy though when you dislike watermelon – like you’re spitting on an American pastime.
Does anyone in the entire world not like Nutella besides me? I just don’t care for it. I love hazelnuts. I love peanut butter. The facts say I should love it. Try as I may, I just don’t.
Pinterest — This whole concept drives me crazy. I’ve been out of the frenzy for a while but when I was first trying to be all trendy with it and I tried to access the app, my request went into some type of holding status and I was told they would contact me when I was given access. Eventually, I got access. I became bored quickly, and it was clogging up my email box so I deactivated it.
Yet, it still haunts me because every single time I Google anything the answer is always on someone’s Pinterest page and guess what? I can’t see it because I am not an elite member of the Pinterest. Maybe I could make my hatred list into a Pinterest page? Seinfeld – just not funny. Singing shows and reality TV – redundant and boring. Movies – too much of an investment of my time to keep me caring. In closing, fortunately, our little quirks, dislikes, interests, fashion choices are what makes us different. You’ll probably never see me dressed in jeans and flip flops, hanging out at the beach eating watermelon but that’s what makes us all unique.
So, in the cheesy words of the Beatles, regardless of whether you agree or disagree with me, “Ob la di ob la da life goes on bra! La la how the life
