Things I hate #11

Touching corduroy. Especially if I have to brush my fingertips across the grain. And putting on clean socks. Football socks are the worst. The feeling on my feet, the sensation on my fingers. I hate them. I don’t know why, I just do. True clothing misery would be a corduroy suit and a pair of football socks. Just thinking about it gives me the shudders. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…

    I hope you do not encounter any corduroy in the near future !

    Now this has REALLY tickled me.

    School jumpers used to make me shudder… especially when they were dried on the radiator!

    I’d forgotton about school jumpers. The ribbed cuffs with the big seam used to cause me to despair everytime I put it on. The way it would rub against my wrist. Appalling.

    The sound of hot water being poured into a cup makes me want to lop my own ears off. Inexplicable. Had to leave the room when that new Twinings ad came on.
    Oh, and ticking clocks – as if we need to be reminded of time’s remorseless progress.

      Everybody’s got something. I met a bloke once who was terrified of celery.
