Alienation

Things that people say that immediately alienate and annoy me:

"I'm not really a 'cake person'."
"I love dolphins!"
"When it's fantasy football season..." (this one is so alienating that I check out before the sentence is finished)
"Do you and your husband go running together?"

Things I say that alienate and annoy others:

"I don't ride bikes."
"I hate horses."
"Hemmingway makes me want to slit my wrists."
"I don't like reading non-fiction. I makes me want to take a nap."
"I hate camping."

I can't believe we are still friends. I don't like cake and I don't really like animals either. How do you put up with me?

Wait...so you and Jeff don't don matching running gear and jog around the lake with Edie in a jogging stroller wearing a dolphin shirt. Man, my image of your extracurricular time as a family just shattered.

Paul read this list to me out loud, I laughed and then told him that I wish he would have made me guess the things on that list, because I think if it was a quiz on "Things that alienate Jill" I would have gotten 100%.
Could I get extra credit for..."Hey, lemme show you this magic trick I just learned..."
