We lavish on animals the love we are afraid to show to people. They might not return it; or worse, they might.

A tricky Theme Thursday this week: CONFESSIONS.


Here are my CONFESSIONS...

1) I don't rate dogs.

2) If someone tells me I'm "nice", I don't take it as a compliment.

3) I think that people that enjoy the television show Friends must be a bit simple in the head.

4) If I can bring myself to forgive, I really don't forget.

5) Even though it probably isn't true, sometimes I am convinced that collectively, human beings have entered their highest stage of stupidity over the past fifteen years.

6) I have been known to truncate a storybook in the evening to ensure a quicker transition to bed.

7) Sometimes if I say, "It's not you, it's me", I really mean "It's definitely you".

8) Inwardly I judge people who take the elevator rather than the stairs very harshly.

9) I'm more offended by Lord Monckton's supremely rotten head than I am his ludicrous scientific beliefs or right wing ideological stance.

10) I think that people who call other people "loosers" [sic] on Internet forums have reached a height of idiocy that one could have only imagined years ago.

Hi Kris,

I totally agree with you on number 4, I might forgive something but I rarely forget. But I am not sure about rating dogs. I seem to like most dogs although I do think some people go crazy when they treat them better than they do other humans.

Happy TT. I hope you have a confession free weekend that is lots of fun.

God bless.

Great list. I agree with no 1. Television shows are stupid, just wasting time. No. 5 is so true, people in the tram often surprises me.

Mametz said...

Very interesting list - We all judge those that take the elevator instead of the stairs. The elevator is the most awkward space man has invented. Never get into one unless you have to, you never know where to look and i always end up making some stupid joke.

I actually agree with a lot of your confessions. I too wonder about people who take elevators up one flight when the stairs are right there. I could understand multiple floors, carrying something heavy up, or an injury, but I've see healthy young people do this!

Mrsupole, dogs make me sneeze.

Carola, I couldn't even tell you the last time I sat in front of the TV for more than 15 minutes.

Mametz, I probably should have said that I make exceptions for the elderly, infirm or anyone carrying a reasonably heavy load.

Kris McCracken said...

Joyce, do you ever tell them off?
