I have more stuff I like, but I want to talk about my dislikes for a bit, just to get it off my chest.
Everyone is unique, but it's very easy to generalize people. I'm very peggable, so when I don't like something, or do something, that I'm supposed to like people get weird. I like to avoid confrontation, so I won't talk much about this stuff in public. This blog is a fun outlet for me, so here goes:
I love most TV, but there are some shows that turn me off. For instance:
Big Bang Theory - I used to absolutely adore this show. I did. When my friend described it as mean-spirited, I honestly didn't know what he meant. And then I watched it in that light. There's a lot right about the show, but there's a lot wrong too. For those who like it, keep watching it. I'll be over here.
Doctor Who - I laughed, I cried (a lot), I whooped, I shouted, I loved this show. Sure, there were a few times where I was like "Come on! They can't do that!", but those times were few and far between. Something clicked in me when they announced the latest doctor, Peter Capaldi, who looks amazing, but I couldn't enjoy it anymore. Then Cracked released this gem which put into words almost exactly what I was feeling:
Unlike Big Bang, for those who love Doctor Who, I envy you. I used to be you. I want to go back, but something won't let me. I'm not better than you, you are better than me.
Beer - I've often envied people who like beer. In the early days of drinkingness (is that a thing?) it was the cheapest way to get a buzz. It was socially acceptable. Nowadays, my friends talk a lot about what makes a beer great, and there are all these varieties and stuff. Both things are super appealing, but I'm not on board. It tastes gross.
Fruit - I like eating, and most of what I eat isn't good for me. I do love most vegetables, but most fruit is not something I like. I want to like it, it's good for me, and it sounds delicious, but... yeah. Some food likes to straddle the line between fruit and vegetable, just to make me debate it in my head, and outwardly for awhile. There are two huge offenders, and the others just kind of fade into the distance:
They both have seeds! That's the end of the discussion in my head, but grocery stores often disagree, and say that they're vegetables. Whatever you call em, I don't like them. My sons have not caught whatever illness affects me, and they love fruit. I'm extremely happy about that.
Cool - I'm glad to get that stuff off my chest. Later I'll have more stuff I like.
