ast Friday I was stumped as to what to share for the fortnightly Love, Like and Loathe segment. It was so hard when I didn’t have anything to share. So I asked Miss 13 and she piped up, “You love me, like food and loathe dog poo!” She was absolutely right, and after three glasses of red wine that Friday night, I actually had an idea what to share but it was a bit late in the night so I’m sharing it this week instead. 😉
You might be wondering why I’ve listed the word “Flashlight” as something I loved this week. You see, Miss 13 was right, I do love her, and the other two kids, in fact, this small family unit of mine. Jessie J’s “Flashlight” sums up how I feel about them because they’re just that – my flashlight. The chorus perfectly describes what they mean to me and how without they are actually the ones that keep me going and not give up on life. They make me want to better myself and get out of that rabbit hole. So sappy but true.
I managed to catch Pitch Perfect 2 with Miss 13, two weeks ago and while I loved the first one, I thought Pitch Perfect 2 was funny but wasn’t that spectacular. Loved Rebel Wilson, but I thought some of the jokes sort of fell flat and the story seemed to drag on and on at certain points. It was however, entertaining nonetheless and I did enjoy the 90’s music fest – something I thought Miss 13 and other teens in the cinema might have not felt familiar with. I mean, hello, they either weren’t born yet or were just little babies when songs like Sisqo’s Thong Song was popular! If it wasn’t how dragging the story line was, I think it could have made it onto my Love list.
Miss 13 wasn’t wrong when she said that I loathed dog poo, because I do! I don’t blame the dogs, I just think dog owners should respect the fact that we don’t like to have to avoid having to step on their dog’s poo while we’re walking or running. I mean, imagine if I had gotten my kids to take a dump on the nature strip while they were younger? It’s called common courtesy people! Bring a bag and BAG IT! Not that hard. If not, just get your dog to poo in YOUR OWN BACKYARD! I’ve begun to sound like a broken record each time I’m out with the kids on the beach or even in our neighbourhood telling them to, “Watch out for poo!”
That’s it for this week’s Love, Like and Loathe. What made your week? Do you loath owners who don’t pick up after their dogs either? Have you seen Pitch Perfect 2? What did you think of the movie?
