Today’s Rule: It’s Not a Curse if it Makes Sense
When I was young I took the time to write down every one of my pet peeves, in hopes that I would review the very long list later in life and discover that the little things no longer bother me. Unfortunately, the plan didn’t work. But in honor of my therapeutic effort, I will share with you one of the pet peeves on the list. Here goes — you are not allowed to call something a “curse,” if it makes sense. What do I mean? Alright, I’m going to keep this description short and sweet. Many people are referring to Jennifer Grey’s recent back surgery as a “Dancing With the Stars curse.” Gee, I wonder how celebrities on that show get injured. It’s so mysterious, and therefore worthy of some kind of magical explanation. Could it be that it’s a rigorous dancing show that casts amateurs with little to no dancing experience? And there you have it — a logical explanation.
