Thursday Thirteen: Things I Can Live Without

 
Not intended to be a culling of possessions,though that would make another good Thursday Thirteen, these are things that I would never miss if they disappeared from my world.
 
Election campaign commercials - does anybody really listen to these?
 
Mosquitos
 
Recorded telemarketing messages
 
Live telemarketers
 
Spiders
 
Road litter
 
Weeds...why do they thrive uninvited while we must cultivate vegetables and flowers?
 
Junk mail
 
Hockey...sorry, still too much of a blood sport for me
 
Snow...OK, it's pretty at first but then it's just cold and a pain to deal with
 
Rude people
 
ED commercials...really, do we need this all over tv?
 
Plastic packaging complete with 25 twist ties that requires surgical tools to open
 
Any objections?

Oh yeah - I can relate to most of this stuff! And I hate how those 25 twist ties end up lying on the ground so my baby can find them and choke on them...

Hey, pictures of your son brought in quite a few comments (O: I would agree with all those 13 things. Did you mention junk mail?

I'm with ya, especially on the ED commercials... not what I want to hear about when I finally settle down to eat dinner and watch the news.

You mean you don't like those commercials of couples exchanging knowing glances sitting buck nekked in side by side bathtubs in the middle of a field???
