It’s been one month since Election Day. It seems, to me anyway, that the political bashing, protests, de-friending, has calmed down somewhat. So when I saw one of my Facebook friends post a status update asking for people’s opinions, I thought there was potential it could go badly. I didn’t comment on said post right away, but made a mental note to check back later to see if chaos had ensued. I was pleasantly surprised, it hadn’t.
The status update said: “What is an opinion (non-political), that you hold that is likely to be very unpopular?” Surprisingly, everyone followed the rules! Those who commented wrote an opinion they had on something that was non-political, non-controversial and for the most part, fun! I liked this friend’s status so much that I decided to use it for my own, and I too, got some colorful, fun answers! It was refreshing to see that no one used this as an opportunity to call out groups of people, make nasty passive aggressive remarks, or bring up something controversial. Everyone used the opportunity to share something about themselves unapologetically that they felt was rare and perhaps unpopular, and I felt like it actually brought people together! I saw a lot of “me too!” comments and “I’m glad I’m not the only one!” So, with that being said, I’d like to share with you some of my ‘unpopular’ opinions. Maybe you’ll agree, and maybe you won’t, but I hope my sharing has the same effect it did on Facebook, bringing people with various likes and dislikes together.
1- Mustard is the best condiment. I could eat a sandwich of only mustard and bread and love every second of it.
2- Being barefoot is weird and uncomfortable. I will only go barefoot at the beach.
3- Tom Brady is not attractive. He may be a great quarterback, but I don’t find him attractive at all.
4- ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ by Mariah Carey is the best Christmas song ever.
5- The world is incredibly overpopulated. (I believe this is a fact actually, but many don’t agree with me, so we can leave it as my opinion.)
6- Silver is better than gold.
7- Chocolate is better than vanilla, times a million.
8- I don’t like/get Star Wars.
9- 4th of July is the best holiday, Halloween is the worst.
10- Milk is disgusting.
11- Candy corn and Peeps are delicious.
12- Tacos are just ok.
