Things I Don't Like

This list was a little harder to come up with, which comforts me. I often fear becoming too cynical in my old age. It also does not mention the very obvious like war or hatred.

driving
loud people
grocery shopping
cooking
olives
wasting time
disrespect
allergies
clothes shopping
video games
confrontation
beer
mosquitos
my hair
rage caused by political opinions
being interrupted
feeling invisible
divorce
menopause
advice I didn't ask for
waiting
pathetic, needy female TV characters
landscape trucks blocking traffic
wearing shoes
egg nog
disciplining students
the phrase "you guys"
dusting
wearing seat belts
misuse of the word "awesome"
the notion that only some US citizens deserve basic rights
estrangement

When I was in my 20s I kept a book with lists of the things I loved (wish I had kept it, but somehow it got lost). This reminds me of that catalogue, but with the obvious difference being that it is the opposite. I do agree with almost everything on the list, but I love to grocery shop!

Shopping is ONLY fun and relaxing when ordering online.. for food.. they have that now.. lol.

And the farmer markets on a beautiful sunny day.. that you come about on different places in NYC.. the atmosphere is fun and enchanting... and all looks good..!!
