The other day I was listening to the radio on the way home and the hosts were doing a bit on ‘three things’. They were sharing three things that they don’t get or have no interest in. These would be things that most of society seems to have an interest in, but you just don’t get. I’m going to try to do a ‘Three Things’ post once a week, and hopefully you’ll all be able to play along! So here are my three things:
1. Harry Potter- I have zero interest in it. I’ve never read a book, and if I did, I’d feel like I was wasting my time. I’m not doubting that they’re written well, and this isn’t even an objection on moral grounds, I just have no interest. We were on the plane, headed back east, and they were showing one of the movies. All I had to do was plug my head phones in and I could hear it, but I just had no interest. I saw one movie and just thought it was stupid and written poorly.
2. Entertainment Magazines- like People and US Weekly. How can people read these things? Most people admit to just looking at the pictures. What? Are you seven years old? They just seem to be a collection of pictures and captions that you could get for free online. And you are in now way, shape, or form, any better off when you are done “reading”.
3. The Olympics- I know this may come as a surprise, but I just have no interest. The only interest I could gather is for men’s basketball, and that’s only because its like an NBA All-Star game, except they are trying. I’ve tried to get into them in the past, but they are just a bunch of people that I don’t know, and that I’ll forget, doing random things people call ‘sports’. And it seems like the ones who excel are usually cheating. Just can’t get excited about the Olympics this year.
So what are your ‘three things’?
