Okay, so you know how everybody's got a pet peeve of sorts? You know, something that they won't do or absolutely hate doing for no reason in particular? I've got one.
Drinking out of other people glasses. Um. Ew.
I was once at a party with one of my high school classes and we were all sitting in the lobby of Denny's waiting to be seated. We waited forever and it didn't look like we were going anywhere fast. Well, bordum sank in, and the villagers began to get antsy. Well, anyway, long boring story short, I was sitting beside my great friend and the guy she had a huge crush on, they were talking boistrously when the conversation turned to gum. Yep, gum. Well, my good friend happened to be chewing gum at the time, and one of the other obnoxious people in the group dared the boy with the crush on his head to chew her gum. So, what does he do? He puts his hand beneath her chin, she spits out her gum, and he pops it into his mouth.
I about had a heart attack! Right there in the Denny's lobby! The crush boy then proceeded to chew her gum for the rest of the wait, and then put it back in his mouth after dinner. Frankly, I was repulsed. I still am for that matter, even years later. That's just disgusting.
What does this have to do with sharing drinking glasses with people, you ask? Maybe not too much, but, to me, it's basically the same principle.
In my opinion, sharing utensils, biting off of the same sandwich, or chewing someone else's gum is the equivalent of saying "Here, eat my spit!"
Gag me.
So, the moral of the story, if you offer me a bit of your ice cream or sandwich or ask me if I want a taste of your scrumptious smoothie, don't be offended if I refuse. It's just a me-thing. Nothing personal.

Everyone's got a "Blog" blog. So here we go.

I never thought I would create a blog, it just seems like a waste of cyberspace. I mean, who wants to waste their precious and valuable time to read what I have to say, right? But, here's the thing, since I want to write as a profession, I guess I'd better get used to the idea that people maybe might want to read what I have to say. If they don't, well, I'll just have a really short career as an author, won't I.
Usually people use their blogs to rant and rave about funny or interesting things, and so I suppose that's what a blog is for, right? Now I've just got to think about things to rant about. This could be interesting.
