Have you ever thought about the things that really gross you out? Just sat for a moment and listed them out for full contemplation?
Well, I’m telling you now that you should. Because when I put this list of gross together (don’t worry I don’t get too specific with the details), I realized that some of these things most likely aren’t considered gross by others.
Nope, some are just quirkily gross to me.
So take a look…here, in no particular order, here are nine things I get all blegh about.
9 things that gross me the hell out
Cooked celery. Listen, I know celery makes up one-third of the holy trinity of cuisine but when cooked, it’s gross.
Nails flipped back. I can’t be the only one who shudders at this one. Ever happened to you? The most
memorable horrific experience for me was basketball; gym class; grade 12. Went to catch the ball. Oh I caught the ball alright. But I flipped my thumbnail back in the process. Can no longer write about this memory…heebie jeebies taking over…
Bare foot assault. The person sitting in the row behind you on the plane who shoves her bare foot between the seam of your seat and that of your seat mate. You look down to figure out what’s poking the back of your arm and you see someone’s horrible-looking, un-pedicured toes…just there…invading your space. Never happened to you? No? Well, I’m very glad for you.
Kale chips. There’s nothing more to say, really.
Stinky workout equipment. Because it means other people’s sweat has seeped into that mat/shoulder press/dumbbell weight, etc. and now I’m smelling it and touching it. Oh goodie.
Anyone spitting. Especially after making a loud – with significant effort – hoarking sound. Gross.
Too much perfume/cologne. Scent-dripping people…when you
spritz douse yourself in your fav scent each morning, if it takes longer than one second to apply the scent…you’re wearing too much!
Maggots in the green bin. Doesn’t matter how much you keep the bin clean, come summertime those maggots. Take. Over. This is why I am suddenly very busy any time food waste needs to be taken out to the green bin – particularly on a hot summer’s day.
Ha. There it is. My list of gross. What would you take off or add to this list?
