I am so confusing to myself sometimes. It's perplexing. I can totally enjoy something and yet, not really like it that much at the same time. For example:
Camping: It's so fun to go outside and set up a tent and sleep in a sleeping bag and go hiking and get so tired and hungry that you could eat an armpit sandwich and it would taste good. Yet, it totally stinks to sleep in a sleeping bag on the hard ground when it's freezing cold at night or have to use the restroom where it's really more of a hole in the ground with something to sit on, or in some cases, it really is a hole in the ground that you shoveled out yourself.
Going to the Movies: I love the movie theater experience with its large screens and loads of movie theater butter with a little popcorn and the gigantic-sized boxes of Reese's Pieces and sitting by good friends in this dark place and not having to think about anything except for what's going on in said movie. But, I really hate it when there are people who are loud behind me who yell or when they walk in and out of the room frequently or when people are getting out their phones to text or even carry on a conversation. Ugh. And also, I hate it when the movie stinks. Make better movies, movie people!
Mowing the Lawn: So, we have a riding lawn mower at our house now, and I kind of like to put on my grimy clothes with a sweaty hat and my grass-stained shoes and get on the lawn mower and pretend like I'm some kind of country girl riding the tractor around the farm and cutting the fields of grass. But at the same time, I don't like it when it's really hot outside and all I really want to do is shower or go to the beach or sit outside on the deck under the awning licking a popsicle and enjoying a lazy Saturday.
Road Trips: I love to go for drives and watch the landscape go by as I travel to whatever destination. It's so cool to see the changes of landscape that can happen in a matter of a few minutes. The world is amazing and beautiful. And I love it when I have good friends in the car with me and good conversations. Except, sometimes the sitting-in-the-car funk gets too great for my nose, and sometimes I really just want to get out and use my legs instead of sitting solitary in some chair all the time. And sometimes, I would really just rather spend more time at my destination than in the car.
There are more, but I'm done for now. What are some of your love/hates?
