Mamacita says: Wasps? Hide me.
Here are some more things I haven’t done yet. This doesn’t mean I never will – just that I haven’t done them yet.
1. I haven’t learned not to be afraid of wasps. I AM afraid of wasps. Desperately, humiliatingly afraid. The buzzing turns me into a whimpering gelatinous mass.
2. I haven’t matured enough to be tolerant or logical about reality shows. To sit and be entertained by the likes of Honey Boo Boo, hoarders, and bridezillas is beyond my comprehension.
3. I haven’t learned how to iron clothing properly. I can’t say that I never iron, but in the past twenty years, I’ve heated up that device maybe four times. Sometimes I’ll have a guest (I love having guests!) who ask to use my iron, so I do own one, but I’ll have to say that my guests use my iron more than I do. On those few occasions when I get out the iron, I’m actually sort of afraid of it. What if I leave it on and go to school? There are irons that turn themselves off automatically, but I don’t use one frequently enough to justify the expense. To sum up: I don’t iron.
4. I haven’t learned to appreciate expensive jewelry and designer shoes. This one doesn’t bother me at all, really – I’m a steampunk jewelry and Skechers kind of gal. However, when I’m visiting with my sisters, I really feel my lack of upscale taste. I don’t care, but I do feel it.
5. I haven’t learned to like country music as a genre. Individually, I have heard a few songs that I liked, but they didn’t really sound “country.” I dislike the boots, the hats, the shirts, the twangs, and the sexist assumptions. I know that not all country music artists fit into this stereotype, nor do all of their fans. But whenever I hear a twang pretending to be music, I cringe.
I know there are tons of other things I haven’t done yet, but these are the few that come to my mind today.
You are allowed to disagree with me.
