I hate washing dishes. And I’ll bet that’s what hell is too, doing whatever it is you hate the most, forever. Probably every time I finished washing a huge countertop of dishes and thought to myself: Well, “that’s” done, now I can relax, a demon would come up behind me, poke me on the buttocks with a pitchfork, say, “What do you think this is—a rest home? Get back to work!” and laugh maniacally as another huge countertop of dirty dishes then appeared ready for me to begin my chore anew. But to be honest, if a demon said that to me after poking me on the buttocks with a pitchfork, I’d laugh too, but probably only after the first million times.

I hated doing the dishes when I lived with the Brute. I enjoy doing the dishes now! :)

There are things that irritate or annoy or exhaust me, but I don't hate doing them. I guess the only thing I hate doing is arguing with evil people. To a certain extent, as long as the argument is on the level, and amuses me, I enjoy it, but once the person exposes him or herself as a bigot or racist or sexist or hypocrite or someone out to hurt others just for the sake of winning an argument, I get a cold feeling inside. When that happens, it's time to walk away.

I've expeirienced that "cold" feeling with people too. It's very unsettling. You're right, that's when it's time to walk away--quickly.

I've never heard of the "Brute," before. He sounds charming.

I hate vacuuming. Although doing someone else's dishes ranks high up there on the suckiness charts. Getting ready for work sucks, too. Day after day, same routine. Wash, rinse, make-up, hair, clothes, shoes, jewelry, repeat. Men have it much easier in that department.
