Eight Things I’m Okay With Not Liking

Note: The idea for this post was borrowed from Katelin after she borrowed it from Terra. (Click here to see my follow-up to this post).

I have a whole lot of love in my heart. Most of the time, I don’t just like things, I love them. However, there are some things that I neither love nor like, and for that, I make no apologies.

  1. Nuts. While I may love peanut butter, I most certainly do not like peanuts. It’s a texture thing. I only sometimes will eat pistachios (every few years), and only ever eat other nuts if it is a complete accident.
  2. Being really drunk. I really enjoy being buzzed, but I feel very uncomfortable when I’m actually drunk. I’d much rather being in control and aware of my surroundings, and in no way do I like throwing up or being hung over.
  3. Mayonnaise. I don’t care if Mr. O teases me and says that I do in fact like it. I will very rarely ever eat mayo. Yes, folks, I do eat tuna salad, but that is the only time I eat mayo, and I like to pretend that I’m not really consuming mayo with my tuna.
  4.  Cleaning the sidewalk after you trim the hedges. My parents have a large corner lot that is surrounded with bushes or hedges or whatever you choose to call them. It used to be my job as a kid to sweep the sidewalk and gather/toss everything after my father trimmed them. I hated this job.
  5. Shoveling snow. I have nothing more to say about this. I get really mad every time I have to shovel. Yes, I live in Massachusetts, but just because I live here doesn’t mean I have to like the weather.
  6. While I am grateful for public transportation, I can’t quite admit to liking it. Every time I need to go to Boston, I always struggle between driving in and taking the T. I really am not a fan of the T. I hate to rely on its schedule. It makes me feel carsick. I’m glad it’s there so I can use it when I need it, but I certainly don’t like it.
  7. The post office and I have never really meshed well. I can’t seem to go there without something going wrong.
  8. Wet socks. I would much rather be in flip-flops with wet feet than be in sneakers with wet socks. Having wet socks (like if you’re in the rain at an outdoor concert for example) totally grosses me out.

    Oh, I love this post (might have to steal it ;))…. I totally agree on the drunk feeling. I think I’ve never been really drunk in my life (I usually don’t drink), but I’ve had plenty of experience with other drunk people that taught me that I don’t have to have that experience myself.

    Also, I love mayonnaise 🙂

    I really don’t like the feeling of being drunk and not completely under control either! I like being buzzed and happy though, that’s always nice after a really stressful week- to just let loose a bit with some friends. I never understood people who wanted to get super hammered until they couldn’t remember their night anymore. That’s just SO strange to me. I love this post idea, I may steal it! I think I said the same thing on Katelin’s last week… Haha

    I despise wet socks/wet feet too!
    Oh and for the tuna salad instead of using mayo, you should totally try it with regular hummus- I think it tastes so much better than with mayo and better so you don’t have to pretend it isn’ t mayo!
