Thanks for the Great Meme Fracas! This is my first Monday Melee!
1. The Misanthtropic: Name something (about humanity) you absolutely hate.
I really hate clicques and shunning people or just plain ignoring them. It reminds me of an Oprah years ago, the guest was saying when you don’t talk to someone it’s the same as saying, “I have no medicine for you” (meaning the person would die).
2. The Meretricious: Expose something or someone that’s phony, fraudulent or bogus.
Fats make you fat… our bodies need a certain amount of oil and fat… I cannot stand when people keep away from fats. I can tell by the person’s skin that they don’t eat fat, their skin is just dull.
3. The Malcontent: Name something you’re unhappy with.
I’m unhappy with the price of things, gas for sure but mostly groceries… we can’t afford to feed our kids steaks, I got 3 little steaks last week on clearance for $20 from $33! That’s outrageous but I did it because they love it, and they were sick of beans (I make them eat a cup of beans most days for the iron). I can’t believe how expensive it is to feed yourself and kids.
4. The Meritorious: Give someone credit for something and name it if you can.
If I could give someone credit for something it would be (drumroll please) the fruit stand guy. Every year there is a fruit stand erected in my town, it’s one of the ways I know summer is really coming! Last year, the fruit stand was trashed by some local teenagers with some major loss of fruit and the stand was destroyed.
There was talk the fruit stand would not come back. I mourned the loss since this guy always has fruit at half the price of the grocery stores and is a very nice man on top of that. He deserves some credit for rebuilding and coming back this year so I want to give my nominatin to him.
5. The Mirror: See something good about yourself and name it
This is hard, I have such a love/hate relationsip with my reflection! I guess I’ll go with my dimple, although it cause me a lot of heartache in the first grade. The little boy who sat next to me poked a really sharp pencil in my dimple and I had an itty bitty scar for the longest.
6. The Make-Believe: Name something you wish for.
I would have a real life robot that would solve all the points I brought out in this meme… a robot that would talk to you when no one else will, could find discount meat and fruit, and give positive affirmations when you’re not feeling so hot about yourself.
