I've noticed that I don't seem to care for a lot of the things that people seem to love.
It's okay though. I like that we're all different. I'd be bored to tears if everyone liked what I liked.
Here are some popular things that people seem to enjoy, but I don't.
--Harry Potter. I know. I tried. Seriously, I tried. But wizards just don't excite me. I have some friends that are very appalled by this.
--Coffee. Love the smell. Hate the taste.
--Seinfeld. Again. I tried. I watched several episodes and would think, "Where's the funny bits?" and, "Hey, that dude was in Problem Child."
--Seafood. Don't like the smell. Don't like the taste.
--Mushrooms. They are FUNGUS. No, thank you. I still can't believe that my husband will happily stuff fungus in his mouth, yet he doesn't like pot roast.
--Running. It seems everyone around me wants to do these color runs or fun runs (which makes me laugh, because running is not fun.) They post pictures of themselves covered in mud from a mud run and I'm thinking, "WHY?" I know some are for charities, which is awesome, but I'll just donate to said charity. I will not run, get muddy, or get color blasted on me.
--Adam Levine. He does nothing for me. His music hurts my ears.
--Saying the world "selfie." I'll never like it. Never. It really is okay to post a photo of yourself and not go, "Selfie!" And I see there's a new show starting this fall called Selfie. I'll pass, just because of the title.
--Singing competition shows. Yawn. Boring. They waste too much quality air time on channels. I hope the craze for these dies down so we can get some proper TV shows.
--Wearing high heels. I only wear them for special occasions. I'd never just put them on for fun or for running errands.
--Calling people "preggo" or "preggers" when they are pregnant. Prego is a kind of spaghetti sauce and preggers makes me want to claw my ears off. It's pregnant. Or with child. Or in the family way. Why do Americans insist on making words so cutesy? (See: Selfie.)
