I just want to make a brief statement before you guys read this post about my oh-so-controversial dislikes. I say controversial because whenever I have expressed my opinion on them before, people have looked generally shocked and exclaimed "I can't believe you don't like it!". I'm always going on about what I love on my blog so I thought it might be interesting to look at the thing's I DON'T like. The intention of this post is not to offend anyone or to belittle something that you personally like. It's just my opinion. Feel free to comment if you disagree with anything I have said in the post because it's all about free speech baby!
6) Panto - Every year Christmas rolls around and every year there's a panto on at the theatre with a team of soap stars from 10 years ago acting out various children's stories. I'm not sure if my non-UK readers will know what panto is but if you are unsure, here's an example:
I went to a couple of pantos when I was a kid and I thought they were ok, but I never loved them. It didn't take me long to get bored of the "He's behind you"..."Oh, no he isn't"...blah, blah, blah. As I've grown up, I have never felt the need to buy tickets to go and re-live the experience. But loads of people I know, who are the same age as me, go every year without fail. It would be like watching the Teletubbies and expecting to be riveted by it at the age of 27...not gonna happen! Maybe when I have kids I will have to revisit the genre for the sake of the wee ones, but otherwise I will continue to avoid it like the plague!
Is there anything you don't like that everyone else seems to love?
