No, Thanks.

Snap takes a moment to tell you what she’s so over.

Three Things I’m Over, Yo:

1. Fake Bread.

I know, I know. #firstworldproblems. But, let’s be serious. Why is the rye “bread” I purchased two weeks ago still spongy and without a speck of mold? Same with the bagels! That shit ain’t right. When I can safely go grocery shopping again, I’ll be buying straight from the bakery, thanks. I’m pretty sure my intestines approve.

2. Reading on an iPad.

Both my eyes and my concentration can’t take it. Kindles are great with their newspaper-like look, but the iPad? No matter how much maneuvering I do with the backlight and nighttime mode and whatever else, I’d much rather have the paperback. A real book also makes it easier to resist playing SimCity BuildIt for three hours straight.

3. Bath & Body Works.

Why do I continue to buy these products? (Because they send you coupons, Snap.) Every “new” shower gel I try smells like the same, overly sharp cranberry that hurts my brain. There are too many high-quality products out there that are much more worthy of my money, and of being on my precious epidermis.

. . .

So what am I going to do with all this stuff? Maybe I’ll snack on an overly-processed bagel while reading H.G. Wells in the bathtub.

Or you know, not.

. . .

    1. Thanks! What kind of books do you like to read? πŸ•Š


  3. Don’t have an ipad, but I do have a smartphone. Either way, I know a thing or two about public domain books and how to get or read them for free online. The Internet Archive and Project Gutenberg has all my literary needs. That is to say I can download the entire Sherlock Holmes canon and put it on my phone to carry with me or simply read on my laptop.

    You know what though? I prefer spending the money on an actual Sherlock Holmes book instead.

    1. Our gadgets definitely come in handy, that’s for sure. It’s nice to basically have the world’s library at our fingertips… but sometimes, it seems, less is more. πŸ™‚

    I agree on all counts. And I’ll add to the list: jean shorts. The chafing, the lack of breathable fabric, the stiff absence of elasticity. So over it.

    1. Me too! I’ve been over shorts in general, for years now. πŸ™ˆ
