This morning I was awake at five o’clock and could not go back to sleep. So I decided to get up and move some furniture around. Seriously. This is the kind of thing I find myself doing when I’m home alone. I vacuumed and did a bunch of bedding laundry and generally spent a lot of time taking things downstairs and bringing different things back upstairs. So basically, putting many things in many different places. Hmm. Writing it down like this makes it sound easy. It was not. Some of those things were big and awkward and heavy.
Now I’m tired, I have a sore shoulder, an aching wrist, a few bruises and a crappy attitude. The timing is perfect to answer an annoying question or two.
What do you find annoying, irritating or unbearable in these categories?
Candy – gooey, sticky, messy, chewy, sickeningly sweet. Does that cover all of it?
Song– constant repetition from outside sources, and even worse, inside my own head
Bad Habit– talking loudly on a cell phone in a public place.
School subject– before an exam, memorizing a bunch of hooey that you will never again need to know in this lifetime.
Personality Trait– refusing to listen to the other side of the story, forming an opinion without getting all the facts
Colour– flourescent lime green
Season– long, cold, dark, stormy, miserable winter
Animal– an annoying, irritating unbearable animal doesn’t really exist. Perhaps we should ask animals for their opinion of us.
Celebrity– the whole idea of being famous and having your personal life thrown out there to the wolves.
Foods – how we process things to death and then wonder why we’re dying from eating them
Tone of voice– high squeaky little girl baby talk from the mouth of an adult
Style of music– I really, really do not like Rap.
Vehicle– Any vehicle can be annoying given the right irritating driver.
Sound– crying, when you feel powerless to soothe the hurt
Event– anything that requires ridiculous amounts of money to pull off, when something simple and less lavish gets the same result.
Anything else? Oh, probably, but that’s enough negativity for one day, wouldn’t you say? I’m going to go ice my shoulder and sulk for a while. But it won’t be an unbearable sulk, just a mildly annoying one.
