Vent Session

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 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!!
