Ok, so I’m going to jump straight into it. Sheets on, pillows stacked, and extra blankets piled on top. These are my 5 things I would love to put to bed….check it out.
Words on Shirts
No, I’m not talking about catch phrases or slogans like Dr. Pepper’s “I’m a Pepper” T-Shirt (although those should be worn with discretion too). I’m talking about the one word shirts women wear that say “Sexy”, “Hot”, “Cute”, etc….whatever happened to a little mystery? Let others be the judge if you’re cute or not. How about that? And truth be told, many women wearing these shirts don’t match the adjectives they’re promoting…I’m just saying, if you have to wear it (but please don’t), at least match what the shirts says. True, these shirts were kinda cool when they first hit the market, but now they’re way past due to be put to bed.
Duck Tails/Mullet Hair Cuts
I’m not ashamed to say that I used to have a duck tail. But that was about 20 years ago….and it was in style back then. But lately, I have randomly come across several people who are still wearing them. WTH?! Who actually sits down in the barber chair and requests this now? I don’t get it. Duck tails may have been popular in the early 90s, but who really wears them now? And speaking of duck tails, let’s go ahead and put the “Mullet” hairstyle to bed too while we’re at it. I don’t see how that hairstyle was ever popular. Who ever thought short hair in the front and long hair in the back was hot? At least not with a mullet…again, WTH?
Dramatic Reality TV
When the concept of reality TV first began, there was a plethora of different kinds of shows to choose from. But now, it seems like everyone has a reality show and they don’t need any credentials to get one. From Flavor of Love, to the “Housewives” series, to Basketball Wives….WTH?! It’s just too much. There’s nothing wrong with a little drama to boost ratings…hey, everybody does it. But at some point, you can tell when a show is scripted. I’ve glanced at some of these shows from time to time, but I just can’t make myself be a frequent viewer of them. A real reality show would be to follow people who will go off at the drop of a hat and don’t know there are cameras filming their every move. Somebody call me when reality TV makes a show like that. Does anyone not have the mental capacity to come up with a good script for a sitcom anymore?
Meetings About Meetings
This is a major pet peeve of mine. Of course, meetings are a necessity to run any successful business, organization or corporation. But when do meetings contradict their intent? First off, no meeting should ever last longer than 2 hours. Except in rare cases, what takes over 2 hours to discuss if you’re having a productive meeting? Key word….productive. This one really doesn’t need a long explanation. Too many meetings about the same thing equals no result. And have you ever noticed how many times people will conduct a meeting without an agenda? Never understood that…
Those Who Can’t….Teach
We’ve all seen this before….and frankly, it really ticks me off. How in the world can you teach something you can’t even do (or don’t even have the basic concept of it). This one came to mind when talking to a friend about the show Dance Moms (I know, another reality show…SMH). If you haven’t heard of the show, the main instructor teaches these young girls how to dance….and she’s so hard-core she upsets many of the mothers. But just watch the show to see what I mean….bet she can’t do any of the moves she teaches…I’m just saying. But this goes for anything….coaches, managers, committee chairs, you name it. How can you teach it when you don’t know how to do it yourself???
***My Guilty Pleasure (Overalls)***
This one has already been put to bed (and in a deep sleep), but wouldn’t it be cool if overalls made a comeback? Ok, don’t all laugh at once, but I’m so serious. If overalls came back, and were made to be more fashionable now, I would buy some. They are so comfortable and great to put on when you’re just want to be lazy. Remember when it was cool to have one or both of the straps unhooked too?
What are some things/people/places you want to put to bed? And what’s your guilty pleasure that you wish would wake up and come back?
