Something I really hate about myself is…
Is also the very thing that I like about myself. I’m complex, I know but you are too. I’m a very passionate, sensual and a sexual person. All of that I like about myself. It is a positive aspect of myself and it can be seen reflected in lots of my posts.
I also hate that about myself because of how I came to be that passionate, sensual person and some of the things I have done, especially in my teen years. I’m not beating myself up for past events but if you have been following the past 26 Blogging Honesty posts, you know what I’m talking about.
To make matters worse, I hate that there is anything that I let bother me to the point where I can say I hate something about myself. Then again, I’m only human.
This coming Saturday there will be another guest post. This time it is by Saber Hodson of What Is Up With That?!? I think you will be a little caught off guard by the subject matter, but as always with Saber, it will be a great post. Saber is a friend of Morning Erection. One of her photos can be seen in the Tri-Annual Poetic License Magazine. Check out her site before June 4th and make sure you come back here on that date to read her post!
Definition: pet peeve
Something about which one frequently complains; a particular personal vexation.
Preparing for this post, I spent the better part of an hour visiting sites from a list generated by a Google search on pet peeves. What I learned is that people have serious issues with some very petty things. Since I don’t know the circumstances surrounding what drove them to classify this particular aspect of their life as a pet peeve, I can’t judge.
I know that a little thing like not putting the cap back on the toothpaste can be the catalyst for a divorce. I know that cutting someone off on the highway can lead to ‘road rage’ and perhaps even murder, but what is it that makes people so testy? Are we a stressed society or just a bunch of immature adults?
My biggest pet peeve is when people don’t wash their hands after going to the bathroom. I also realize that in public restrooms people are less inclined to want to touch the handles of the faucets, so in some ways I forgive people. I use my shoe to flush, my elbows to turn on and off the water and only my pinky finger to open the door. It’s those visitors that I have to send back into the bathroom at my home who didn’t wash after going to the bathroom that bother me the most. I always check to see if the bar of soap is wet or the hand soap has been moved.
Don’t come to my house and want to shake my hand, eat my food or go into my refrigerator with dirty hands… That’s just rude. I’d rather you steal from me!
Some of what I found on other blogs are: people who snort when they laugh, people who call you and don’t leave a message, having to listen to people eat their popcorn in the movie theater, public nose pickers, pubic hair on hand soap, walking into spider webs, parents who can’t control their kids, and Black people who don’t know that the combination of ‘th‘ in a word does not sound like an ‘f‘, like birf-day.
With my rant out of the way, what is your biggest pet peeve?
