AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT:
Things I hate.
People who drive while on their cell phones.
People who talk loudly in public on their cell phones.
People who talk on their cell phones while at a public restaurant with other folks at the same table.
. Cell phones.
. People who have WAY more than 12 items in the express lane at the grocery store.
. Cars that cruise at or below the limit in the passing lane in four-lane traffic.
. Cars that pull on to the four-laner when both lanes are occupied.
. Male actors and models who need a shave. (Make up your mind: Either shave entirely or grow a beard.)
. People who screw up and smile and say “Sorry ’bout that.”
. Parents who can’t (or simply won’t) control their kids in public.
. Loud noise issuing forth from the open windows of a passing car.
Things I love.
. My wife, two sons, and four granddaughters.
. Beautiful sunsets and sun rises.
. Beautiful music.
. Lively and imaginative art.
. Lively and imaginative people.
. Great books.
. Extraordinary athletic feats in any sport.
. British mysteries.
. The smell of newly cut grass.
