I Don't Believe In...
Here are a variety of habits and items I don't believe in:
1. A Cooked Meal more than Once a Day.
While I understand and applaud the benefits of home cooking...I think the appropriate amount of cooking is no more than one real home cooked meal per day. That's an amount I'm comfortable with. The rest of the time your hunger can be satisfied with oatmeal, a sandwich, a banana, an apple, a salad, leftovers...anything that doesn't require actual cooking.
2. Sweat pants.
Never mind that 65% of the girls at my college wore sweat pants on a daily basis, I had one pair of sweat pants that I only wore when actually in my PE classes because the teacher said we had to. And toward the end of the semester I discovered that she wasn't actually that strict and I broke the rules and started wearing jeans to class. If you haven't noticed, skinny jeans stretch, ya'll!
3. Homeowner's Associations.
I'm not even sure if that's the real term, but I've seen them in movies--the neighborhoods that force you to mow your lawn and not paint your house crazy colors and prevent you from doing other sorts of bad homeownerly practices. I don't even own a home, but if I did I know I wouldn't want to own a home with an excessive number of rules attached.
4. Child-Free Parties
Personally, I don't see the appeal. There are a lot of important children in my life right now, and I know there always will be. There were children at my wedding and the reception and there are children at every single party in my home. Any kind of get-together where children aren't welcome really isn't my thing, whether is be a sedate, fancy-schmancy expensive to-do....or a loud and dangerous frolic with illegal substances.
5. Pointy-toed Shoes
My feet are long and narrow, which is probably why I'm not partial to a style that would only make them look longer and narrower. Plus, the shoes look rather dangerous.
6. Tent Camping
It's not fun. I'm still young ans and spry enough that I can sleep on the floor...but I have a strong, strong appreciation for real bathrooms and real walls and not freezing to death.
I still don't see the attraction, folks. If I'm cold, hot chocolate, hot apple cider, or hot tea it is! But I'm not addicted to any of those. You know what drink is the best? Angel's strange and sundry fruit/ice/smoothie combinations he invents with our blender. I think he has about 5 different 'recipes' he makes on a regular basis, and they are way more exciting than coffee.
What don't you believe in?
