Things I love to Hate

Everything is so mushy out there today. I realized that as much as I love some things, I really despise others. And I'm not ashamed to say I love to hate those things. Just to be different, here's a list:


  • peas (any kind)

  • cooked carrots (I like raw ones)

  • broccoli on my pizza

  • pineapple

  • boogers

  • war

  • dirty diapers

  • western movies

  • racism

  • cockroaches

  • indifference

  • conformity

  • the smell of gasoline

  • the word - moist (yuk even writing it makes me cringe)

  • snorts

  • liver (not the organ, just the food)

  • puddles (of anything)

  • touching bathroom stall doors

  • commercials (unless it the SuperBowl)

  • drama (unless its YA of course)

  • people in character suits

  • humidity (mostly b/c of my hair)

  • smell of trash

  • hearing someone gag

  • waking up to a dirty kitchen

  • touching old food

  • fighting

  • driving a stick shift on hills

  • seeing blood (as long as its in my body its ok)

  • mold in the shower (not that I have any!)

  • old soggy soap with a hair on it

  • scratchy towels

  • combs (its a danger to my natural curly hair)

  • bad coffee (Yes, I am a coffee snob)

  • touching other people's feet (Sorry honey!)

  • getting up early (before 8)

  • when I'm out of creamer

  • talking to utility companies on the phone

  • junk mail

  • negativity

  • people who take themselves WAY TO SERIOUSLY

  • greedy companies

  • alligators (they freak me out!)

  • bread crust

  • the water that first comes out of ketchup bottles (YUK!)

  • crust on a milk jug

  • people who carry on a really long inappropriate convo on their cell phone in Starbucks. I'm talking like non-stop

  • cracked heels

  • cellulite (not that I have any!)

  • ear hair

  • people who pick up the phone to sat they are busy

  • stepping in dog poo or gum

  • finding tissues in the dryer (means someone blew their nose and my clothes were washed in it)

  • littering

  • smell of cooked beef, fish or eggs

  • wilted lettuce

  • slow computers

  • chain letters

  • running up hills

  • poppyseeds

  • blackheads

  • lists

  • a long bad joke

  • people who talk about themselves

  • politicial rhetoric

  • when it rains hard while I'm driving on the highway

  • airport or hospital food

  • reading about tragedies (unless its Shakespeare)

  • traffic (unless its blog traffic! Then I say, Jam on!)

  • long toenails
  • round-abouts (who goes first?!)


How about you? What grosses you out?

Hilarious! Particularly loved "hearing someone gag, crust on a milk jug, ketchup water, and a long bad joke" so true!

As a mom of three, I think that ketchup bottle water is a major problem that should be studied by Nobel Laureate scientists.

Otherwise, I may snap one of these days. :)

I despise the word moist. All my friends know it. Hilarious that you write it. When I read the title of this list I immediately thought of that word.

Ewwwww- Long toenails....

You crack me up. These are hysterical. I agreed with almost all of them. Except for the pineapple. Don't mess with the pineapple. And pineapple on pizza! Yum--my 11 year old daughter turned me on to that one.

My sister's married name is Moist. Isn't that sad?

And here's a clue about the ketchup for you and Carrie: shake it first!
