The things you're determined never to watch, read, or hear
I just found out that my friend Sheila has never seen Pretty Woman, and that after holding out 18 years, she’s made it her mission in life not to — just because she wants to see if she can pull it off. I was going to ridicule her until I remembered that I’m never going to see Pulp Fiction. Or a single moment of The Hills.
I suspect we’re all playing this irrational, stubborn game with something… So out with it: What movie, TV show, or stage production are you trying never to give yourself the opportunity to enjoy? Or maybe there’s a book you’ve vowed not to read or a song you’ve refused to hear?
