Do you know what's nuts? (Other than this plated assortment of legitimate nuts) People. Not nuts in a good "haha he sure is a wacky lad" way either.
Actually, where did the negative connotations of calling someone nuts come from? Everybody loves nuts! Unless you're severely allergic to nuts, in which case I can understand abstaining from them. Hm, maybe that's why? Because you can be allergic to people the same way you can be allergic to nuts? You have to abstain from being around certain people just like you have to abstain from treenut cross contamination. Perhaps I'm right? Perhaps I'm not.
Either way, do you ever look at a person and just think "....why?" No even better, do you ever look at a person and just think "...how?" HOW is it possible to be so insufferable? How does your brain literally form such thoughts to make you act in such ways and say such things? Dumbfounded is the only word I have to describe the way I feel towards some people. Once I said to my piano teacher when he was getting into turmoil over human beings:
"Look, Andrew, you'll never understand people, so you may as well do yourself some mental favours and not even try." solid advice if I do say so myself.
Also, if you didn't know already, here is your gentle reminder that if you have a toxic person in your life, you have every right to remove that person from your life in an act I like to call "taking out the trash" ("emptying the compost" also works well). If someone's presence brings you down, if you aren't receiving the respect and treatment you deserve, you aren't obliged to keep that toxic person in your life just to please them! No, no. It's okay to be selfish, you've got to look out for yourself and make sure you are able to exist happily.
Okay good, glad we cleared that up. Now, I love nuts, VERY glad I am not allergic or even intolerant, if you are, may God have mercy on your soul
Cashews, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, Brazil nuts (one a day is all you need to meet your daily selenium requirements!) all thrilling and packed full of the good stuff. Do yourself a favour and eat a nut (unless you are allergic - OBVIOUSLY - be sensible, you know yourself better than I do)
