The other day WordPress witnessed an attack on one of our own, by one of our own. When I read the original post I thought it was witty, funny, and I accepted it as tongue in cheek. I was nowhere near offended by it or thought any different of the writer. The thing is I can’t apply for this position. I’m sorry TWTG, but I don’t quite meet the criteria. I don’t drink, my Chevy Blazer is a ’97, and I am still yet a baby at the age of 30 – even. So, since I have to forgo this application process, and stay single for a little while longer, I figured I’d share the pros and cons of doing so.
Pro – I get to eat what I want, when I want, without anyone trying to take a bite off my plate.
Con – What I want, when I want, consist of a lot of processed food like Top Ramen, Tostino’s Pizza, and frozen chimichangas. Not really the type of food someone is trying to steal off of your plate anyway.
Pro – I receive a lot of dinner invitations, from a lot of people that are very good cooks.
Con – Sometimes when you show up to these dinners there is a surprise guest of the opposite sex. (This isn’t really a con, just something to be ready for.)
Pro – The clicker is mine, I own it, I regulate it. The DVD player is too. I choose what movies and shows get played.
Con – I still have a cat. If she feels like having attention, I can’t ignore it, even if I want to.
Pro – I don’t much mind being alone so it’s easy to keep myself occupied.
Con – It’s hard to justify $18 at the movies for a movie that was unnecessarily made in 3D, and a large soda.
Pro – I have a couch, futon, and queen sized bed to sleep on when ever I need to.
Con – Remember that cat I talked about? I only have a couch and a futon to sleep on when I need to.
Pro – It’s a one bedroom apartment so there’s not that much space to clutter up.
Con – I only had a window unit during the summer, and it was in the living room, so this is why the cat thinks she owns the queen sized bed.
Pro – I’m able to volunteer for all sorts of events and activities.
Con – People know that I’m able to volunteer for all sorts of events and activities.
Pro – I have plenty of time to come up with Pro-Con lists.
Con – I always end up one con short of a full list.
I think that’s pretty much it. This kind of fizzled out, didn’t it? Well, in any case, coming up next on Brother Jon – Do you listen to PodCast? If so, do I have one for you. And if you don’t, do I have one for you anyway.
