Beloved Friend (after an argument about who was better, Beyonce or Rihanna): Ya know what, H? Sometimes I think you are too black and white about things. You either LOOOVE something or you HAATTEEE it…I just think you don’t always give things a fair chance.

Me: Wha?? I am not judgmental (thoughtful pause). I mean, some things are just BAD–like Louis Vuitton print purses… and mediocre songs about personal triumph.

Beloved Friend:  Just think about it. <End Scene>

Well think about it I did. At first, I tried to downplay my (admittedly vigorous) opinions…I changed “I haaaattte when…” to “it’s not my favorite.”  Or, “I have always DETESTED” to “No, thank you.” In the end, though, the result was a diluted and dishonest me.  Boring!  So, after a brief internal debate, I decided to embrace my distinctiveness…and write about it. Plus, there just aren’t enough quick and easy Top 5 Lists in the blogosphere.
