things that I am supposed to like but do not like all that much

Things that I am supposed to like but I do not like all that much

Massages (too “handsy”)

Museums (it’s the pace of them, really, that draggy walking around only to stand still while others jockey for space around me)

Short stories (I’ve only just glommed on to who’s who when it’s over. Even worse are short story collections, where the experience repeats itself 8 or 10 or 12 times)

Articles about “content marketing” (here is where we wonder: given my career am I compelled to read them?)

Most concerts (I spend much of my time wondering how soon they will be over)

The Opera, the ballet  (as above)

Twitter (never follow @dianedico unless you like the sound of silence, then please do)

Lobster (allergic but even if I wasn’t they freak me out)

Oysters, clams, crabs (ditto, ditto, ditto)

Gardening (buggy, sweaty and isn’t always easier to go buy a carrot or whatever?)

Meditating (oh please)
