5 Things I Don’t Like That Everyone Else Seems to Love – Ryan’s List
If everyone loved everything equally, the world would be a pretty boring place. These are just a few of the things everyone else seems to love that I just can't stand.
Want to keep me away from the cupcakes, donuts, or cookies? Put sprinkles on them. Don't get me wrong, I do love sugar, and my sweet tooth is second to none, but I just can't wrap my mind around why someone would want to ruin a perfectly good baked good by topping it with these tooth-cracking nuggets of gross. Why not just put rocks in my soup?
Rye Bread / Rye Chips
I come from solid German stock, so I should love rye bread, but the taste has always been something my tongue can't tolerate. And don't get me started on those God-awful rye chips they like to throw into a bag of Chex Mix or Gardetto's. Nothing ruins a good bag of party mix like biting into what feels like chips of concrete.
Sweet & Salty Mixes
I like sweets (obviously), and I like salty foods, I do not like sweet and salty foods mixed together. Bacon, gooooood. Ice cream, gooooood. Bacon on my ice cream? Why don't you just go ahead and drop a dog turn in my cereal while you're at it. Would I like some trail mix? No thanks. If I want M&M's, I'll buy a bag of M&M's. Why would I want to go through all the trouble of picking them out of all those peanuts?
Truth be told I like tomatoes after they've been turned into something like ketchup or spaghetti sauce. Just like the aforementioned sprinkles, or rye chips, this boils down to a texture thing for me. Few things are worse in my opinion then biting into a hot and juicy hamburger only to chomp down on a mushy slice of tomato. Mushy equals rotten in my mind, and rotten isn't good.
If you're a regular reader of my blog, this comes as absolutely no shock to you. I pick on the Duck Dynasty crew because they are the "it" show at the moment, but my disdain for this so-called "reality" programming covers every show about pawn shops, junk yard pickers, no-talent celebrities, gold-digging wives, and gator-hunting swamp folk. The fact the networks try to pass off the scenarios depicted in these shows as something that would happen naturally is a slap in the face to you and I. Even more aggravating is the fact that people keep watching this garbage when they know full well that everything about them is completely set up. I know, I know, Duck Dynasty is something the whole family can watch together, but so is Sesame Street. And the acting on that show is Emmy-worthy compared to ANYTHING the Robertson family can pull off.
