Things I Utterly Abhor

There aren’t many things I utterly abhor, Seems a waste to concentrate on dross I do cringe when I look at an unsightly sore. Forced to spend time with a churlish boor I will always consider an unfortunate loss, There aren’t many things I utterly abhor. Observing a child spoiled rotten to the core Whose parents have not taught who’s boss I do cringe when I look at an unsightly sore. The expulsion in public of a gaseous vapor Makes some folks grin, but makes me cross There aren’t many things I utterly abhor. I don’t really enjoy a movie I’ve seen before, Seeing my shirt on which I’ve dropped sauce I do cringe when I look at an unsightly sore. Giving it thought, I could come up with more Like running out of thread when I need to floss There aren’t many things I utterly abhor, I do cringe when I look at an unsightly sore.

Very few movies will get a second look from me - "I don’t really enjoy a movie I’ve seen before," but Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Sound of Music and The Unsinkable Molly Brown and Mulan will get a second look- and While You Were Sleeping which I LOVE!

I have a few favorites which I watch over and over, but generally not. I'm a big fan of "A Chorus Line" and "Coal Miner's Daughter." I liked Sound of Music, as well.

Post covid, many children have developed behavioural disorders perhaps owing to being confined, bereft of human touch, no interaction with peers and addiction to computer screen. It’s impacted parents too, working from home, unable to balance home and work. I know this since my wife is a teacher. She now counsels parents more than children.

Good luck and best wishes to your wife, Unseeking Seeker. She has a very difficult job.

I can relate to what you find disgusting Milton. You wonder how some people were raised and I agree when they lack manners it is not good...

When you think about their parents they did not say anything and that is why they are what they are. No discipline. In their lives. You witnessed the reason why they act as they do...

You are soooo right, Michael. I was in a restaurant the other day and the kids at a table across the room were making so much noise, they couldn't be ignored. Their parents were saying absolutely nothing. I wanted to scream!
