So this is a silly post topic, but it’s been floating around my brain for quite some time now, so I decided it was about time I set it free!
What follows is a list of different things that I feel like I’m SUPPOSED to love, but I really just… don’t. At all. In fact, in many cases, I don’t like them at all!
Shaving in the tub– I read over and over about how much women love to lounge back in a tub and shave their legs all silky smooth and I have to admit– I just kind of cringe and gag. I can’t shave in the tub. I just can’t do it. First of all, I just find it much easier to get that chore done in the shower, but, also, doesn’t it bother anyone else to sit around in a vat full of stubble? Am I the only who thinks about this? Because, I’ll be honest– I seriously can’t get the idea out of my head and it makes it super hard to enjoy a bath. I do enjoy a nice soak from time-to-time, but I have to be clean and shaven before I get in. Otherwise, I start overthinking all the “stuff” in the water.
Showers! My preference. White wine, optional.
Breakfast in bed– I can’t stand breakfast in bed. Seriously. I prefer tables to trays and I loathe the thought of crumbs in my clean, white sheets. If I’m totally honest, though, my real aversion to the whole experience may stem from my control-freak nature about my kitchen. I really don’t like other people cooking in my kitchen. I don’t know why that is, since I’m not particularly type-A about anything else, but there it is. Fortunately, my family is all okay with that quirk of mine and they know that mommy likes coffee, the whole coffee, and nothing but the coffee delivered to her on Mother’s Day.
Massages from anyone but my husband– I read all about how much people love getting massages and I shiver a little bit– and not in a good way. I don’t like strangers’ hands on me. I mean, I can handle a doctor or physical therapist manipulating some part of me if there’s medical need for it, but the thought of letting someone run their hands over my skin while soft music plays? AAAACCCKKKKK!!!! That’s nowhere on my wish list, thanks.
Starbucks-- Will you still like me if I tell you that I don’t really enjoy Starbucks? I mean, I’m sure there’s a thing or two there that’s fine, but, at the end of the day, I just love a good cup of black coffee and that’s not something Starbucks does well. I feel like social media is perpetually full of pics and descriptions of all sorts of Starbucks drinks and I really have nothing to say about that. Pumpkin Spice? Salted Caramel? Don’t really care. Pass me a large, black Dunkin Donuts and I’m a happy camper.
Bacon– And here’s where I lose you all. I KNOW!!!! What kind of freak doesn’t like bacon??? Okay– here’s the deal. I don’t really dislike bacon all that much. I mean, I like little bits of it in my scrambled eggs from time to time. And I absolutely love to save and use my bacon grease. But other than that? I don’t really like it all that much. The truth is that I’ll pull it off a burger or sandwich and give it to someone else in the family– they all love it in ways I just do not.
So there you go. Now you know how truly odd I am. Can we still be friends? And, also, is there anything you feel like you’re suppposed to enjoy, but just don’t?
