A Short, Mid-Week Rant

OKAY YOU KNOW WHAT? I’ve had enough.

Here’s the narrative.

Live life to the fullest! Do what makes you happy! Eat, drink and be merry! Embrace all that life has to offer!

But it seems to me that even when you’re doing exactly that, people have something to say about the right way to live at your most happy.

“What?! You don’t eat meat? Why are you even alive? Why don’t you just jump off a roof now? What kind of shriveled soul doesn’t find pleasure in feasting on the carcasses of once-upon-a-living creatures?”

“WHAT?! You don’t watch Game of House of Tables?! Do you even love yourself?!”

“You haven’t been to THE CAVE OF WONDERS?! Here, just, jab out your eyes now because nothing you see from here on out matters you dreary peasant.”

I know people mean well, I know they want to spread the love because when you’re excited about something you want everyone else to be excited about it. But honestly guys, we all need to relax. At some point, we should actually live and let live. Making people feel like they’re stupid or boring or spoonfuls of unseasoned potato salad because they’re not living the lives that we think are most interesting? Stop doing that. Be the fascinating individual that you are, live in your space. And if someone is seeking your particular brand of adventure, they’ll come knockin.

And honestly, if I hear one more person’s jaw grind against the floor because I tell them I don’t eat meat, I will actually lose it.

Okay. Night! Day! Bye!
