Seven Things I Can't Bear

Mindy over at Mamadrama started a meme today on things she can't bear. I don't know what else to post today, so I thought I'd join in even though I'm trying to accentuate the positive these days.

1. Clowns. (Not just the evil ones.)

2. Maggots

3. Toenail trimmings

4. Biting down on alumin(i)um foil

5. Whatever is in the air in fabric stores and soap aisles of the grocery store

6. The idea of sutra neti - yogic manipulation of a string in and out of one's orifices

7. Seeing an animal in pain

Yes, I'm really sorry I participated in this meme 'cause now I have to look at the things I can't bear to for several days! Yuck!

I have a picture of a guy with a snake coming out of his nose. You could have used that one

Your list is nasty... but I agree totally.

Oh boy!
That is funny, Dear Artist, that you posted that string picture.
I once thought of studying Ayurvedic medicine when I began to incorporate some Ayurvedic principles into my day-to-day.
But that very "the thing-goes-in, the-thing-goes-out" stuff was the dealbreaker for me!

Now this is a very groovy blog...

I couldn't agree more with your eight selections.

You are quite the interesting soul.

The Artist formerly Known as Purpleworms (!) said...

ooh Pamela, you could do the meme and that could be one of your pictures. Then maybe people would be complaining to you instead of me!

Nib, elbows, huh!?
