You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you – here at The Flavored Word, writer and author Shauna Nosler tends to agree with what the late Ray Bradbury said – although my writings steer clear from dystopia, I am a fan of Batman and the young Bruce Wayne … and throughout this blog (if you stay long enough) you’ll come to understand what this mortal, wife, mother, writer, author thinks of the world around her … and every now and then, you might even find yourself agreeing. Cheers!
So I made the jump through hyperspace and ended up over here at WordPress – sparing you the mundane details of why I switched servers, I’m just going dig into a short little post about a few things that make me cringe … this is just for fun (sort of) … and it’s the beginning of my permanent page over left titles “Not So Splendid Things”. Enjoy … and if you are rejoining the Flavored Word from the other side make sure you click the “follow” button above …
GUM I absolutely loathe people – or at least the behavior that some people present – whom chew gum as if it was their last meal on Earth. Really, close your mouth … one piece is all you need … and if I am staring at you strangely it’s because I really don’t get how it’s possible for some one to make so much damn noise chewing synthetic rubber.
LINGERING In so many ways … be it in line at the grocery store (stop talking to the checker, I am behind you and I want to leave with my groceries before dusk) … or be it on a particular topic (we’ve already discussed that, please, for the love of God can we agree that a decision has been reached) … or be it on a particular thought, or incident (okay, okay, I know your parents got divorced when you were twelve, and yes, that must have been rough but come on already! You are forty! Stop blaming your parents for your current emotional garbage – it is no longer their fault)!
TEXTING and DRIVING There is a reason it is illegal in certain states … it is dangerous and you are not that important – put the damn phone in the back seat!
MEAN PEOPLE Do not yell at the waiter because your steak is cooked incorrectly – it’s an easy fix and you’ll probably end up getting it for free anyway. And, believe it or not, it is NOT the flight attendants fault that there are so many rules to follow while flying the friendly skies – and since I for one would like to keep our skies friendly, please, sit back down, put on your f’ing seat belt and do as you and everyone else has been asked.
