After a conversation about pet peeves, I've gotten myself a little riled up...there are several things that I think have gotten too big for their britches, so to speak.
Exhibit A: Bacon! (I've felt this way for years...YEARS.) I likely won't have many people agree with me, but the bacon thing has gone too far. Traditionally, a breakfast food, sometimes coupled with other goodies on a sandwich at lunch, rapped around shrimp or a beef filet (YUM), bacon has "known its place." When I was at a party and a guy emphatically told me how I just HAD to try bacon vodka, it was the last straw. NO! Don't put meat in my alcohol. EVER.
Exhibit B: "Craft" beer. Don't get me wrong, I love beer. A lot. These days, it seems like everyone is classifying all local brews as craft beer. While most may be - especially with the amount of smaller establishments popping up all over the place - not all breweries produce what's classified as craft beer. Microbrewery vs. Craft Breweries. That's what I'm talking about. Here's a great post about the difference between the two.
Exhibit C: This: Ok, this might not have gotten too big for its britches, yet...but I get the sneaking feeling that it is well on its way.
I get it. Sweat pants and pants with elasticized ankles are making a comeback. They can be loungy, dressier casual and some are even dressy. I know! It's like Christie Brinkley, circa 1981 all over again! Not that I remember or anything. I've just seen pictures...in my history books. Yeah, that's it.
Can we please make a deal? If you are wearing sweat pants that make you look like you're getting off the bench at a basketball game or like you should be doing yoga, how about you NOT wear heels. Okay?? Thanks!!
