I’m going through the alphabet and trying to come up with things that I mentioned in the title of this post. Why don’t you give it a whirl too?
A IS FOR:
ARTICHOKES, I really don’t know anything about them except they look weird.
ANCHOVIES, they look like wet centipedes and I don’t like centipedes wet OR dry.
APATHY, something that I really DO care about IS apathy, but I don’t like apathetic people who always have an opinon but won’t follow up on it.
ARACHNIDS…WELL, YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT! Be honest, do you like Spiders, Scorpion, Tick, Chigger, Mite, Daddy Longlegs, Pseudoscorpion and others. I DON’T like them AND they annoy me!
AGGRESSIVE ANIMALS…I think that is self explanatory.
B IS FOR;
BATS, the flying kind. Nothing can look that ugly and be something good.
BRUSSEL SPROUTS, right up there with anchovies.
BEER, I think it has something to do with first drinking about a fifth of cherry vodka and then drinking a can of beer. AND UP TILL THAT TIME I HAD NEVER HAD ANYTHING STRONGER THAN A SHIRLEY TEMPLE!
BRUTALITY, I think that is self explanatory. Some people should not be allowed to have children or pets.
C IS FOR;
CONGRESS, I think that is self explanatory.
D IS FOR;
DIET, which we know stands for Did I Eat That??
DIARRHEA, I think THAT is self explanatory
E IS FOR
EAR WIGS, another bug that creeps me out!
ECONOMICS, I didn’t do so well in that class, but I shouldn’t feel too badly because all the smart people in Washington apparently didn’t do so well either!
EMINENT DOMAIN, Seriously, WHO thought that up?? What right does the government have to come in and take what is yours?? I KNOW, I KNOW….The Lord giveth and the government taketh away.
EUGENICS, Again, WHO thought that up? Leave the species the way they were intended to be!!
F IS FOR
FUR that is not on the animals for which it was intended. LET THEM WEAR THEIR OWN HIDE, OR GIVE THEM SOME OF YOURS. WHICH IS IT?? YOURS FOR THEIRS??
FIFTH OF CHERRY VODKA, See under B for explanation
FRACTIONS, it involves math…see previous day’s post.
G IS FOR
GINGER ALE, YUCK!!!
GRAPEFRUIT, Makes me pucker just to think about it.
GRAVITY, it has not been kind to me in the past several years. Body parts just seem to be stretching further downward.
H IS FOR
HEART BREAK, We’ve all had a heart break and it isn’t fun.
HEDGE APPLES, “an inedible fruit”…when I was a Sophomore in school, my parents and my boyfriend were in cahoots letting me think that HE liked cooked hedge apples. And that you had to boil them for about 20 minutes till they were done. THEY DO NOT GET DONE! Not even in an hour. Some people call them osage oranges. When I was done trying to cook those things, I had names for everyone in the living room.
HORSERADISH. It’s OK if you’ve made a dipping sauce for shrimp with it, but just to put it on a sandwich????
Well, That brings us to the I’s which will be another time. After reading back through what I’ve written so far, one would think I was a pretty picky eater!
