A high school friend and I have been keeping a list (since high school) of all the things that make us happy. The list is long. This is good. We call it the happy list.
However, there are a lot of things that drive me crazy. I need to get a few of these off my chest- a not-so-happy list, if you will. Apologies if these offend; they are not directed at anyone in particular.
- Plurals that use "z". Like "girlz" or "bratz".
- How our culture encourages little girls to grow up so fast.
- Pre-made cookie dough.
- People who treat their dogs like children. Animals don't need birthday gifts, portraits, clothes. (Okay, I realize it makes some PEOPLE happy to do this for their pets. But... it drives me nuts.)
- Consumerism (I fall into this trap myself sometimes...)
Feel free to add to the list.
