I heard a smart friend the other day say an important thing: "Hate is a very strong word."
It made me realize that maybe we throw it around too much in casual conversation, especially with regard to people.
Of course, a wiser person might opt to focus on the people I don't hate. But, I, on the other hand, intend to use the heavy blanket of cold and flu medicine that is warming my brain as an excuse to further clarify my hate classifications so as not to misuse the word in the future.
Here we go.
Types of people I think it's ok to hate:
-people who do not give regularly of themselves to those less fortunate.
-people who abuse others.
-people who don't get the joke.
-doucehbags, in general.
-mooches...perfectly capable people who let their friends or significant others pay for extensive amounts of vacations, rent, clothes, food or whatever. Gross.
But, YOU, of course, I love.
