Talk Thursday//Things that make the baby Jesus cry

1. Cold oatmeal

2. The smell of broccoli soup in enclosed spaces

3. Farmville

4. Wet socks

5. Tepid bathwater

6. When cell phones say "No Service"

7. Cats

8. Blue Christmas lights

9. Dropping food on a solid colored shirt

10. Greek homework

This list felt more like an anti-Oprah's favorite things list than things that make the baby Jesus cry. But I was going for seasonal relevance.

We have good things. Like Then we all have bad things. This is not to be a Debbie Downer, but let's admit it: sometimes things are stupid.

So, what things in your world are the worst? What things do you think make the baby Jesus cry?

You know what DOESN'T make the baby Jesus cry? Lowing cattle. They may wake him, but he doesn't cry.

No joke, ya'll: some of your sucktackular list items almost made mine!

Erica: mis-matched lights and flat soda & pulpy orange juice for SURE!

Anonymous: I agree with almost everything except teenagers and pre-teens. For sure textual criticism, porn & theology tests. =)

And Sir Nicholas: I agree with you about 1, 2, 5, 8 & 10. But country music? You're going to bash country music on this blog? Too far, sir. Too far. =)

And BIL, I hate to admit it and you know I never use this, buuuuttt...that made me LOL. I never LOL. Good one. =)
