My mother loved figs.
I only like them in a Newton.
It’s all a matter of taste.
five things you like a lot that some close relative or significant
other did/does not like. This could be food, movies, hobbies, music,
sports or whatever springs to mind.
1) Seinfeld–I haven’t watched it for years, mostly because early in our relationship Pure Luck told me he didn’t think it was funny. It’s certainly mean-spirited. But I’ve been watching early evening repeats recently, and I find it (guiltily) hilarious.
2) TV sports, especially college basketball and tennis–My dad was a big sports fan, and I enjoyed watching sports on TV with him. He did a great job explaining things, because he liked having an informed fan watching alongside. I now live with a houseful of people who couldn’t care less about sports, with the exception of some interest taken in the Olympics by my younger children. What this means is I don’t really follow sports anymore.
3) Okra–I’ve always loved okra. There’s no point making a list of those close to me who don’t like it. Just assume everyone.
4) Knitting–I had a long conversation with a dog trainer this week about Sam’s propensity for eating things, including knitting. She said, "The dog sees the knitting as competition for your attention. He thinks if he eats it, it will be gone, and you won’t do it anymore, and you’ll have more time for him." Hmm.
5) An occasional cocktail–I really enjoy an occasional drink. My children do not approve. (My husband disagrees.)
