Daily prompt: Second attempt

You. We know *you* are vice-free, dear Daily Post reader. But, or perhaps we should say, “butt,” others around you and in your life are riddled with vices: they smoke; they eat too much celery; they hog the covers; they can’t keep their hands out of the office candy bowl. Which vice or bad habit can you simply not abide in others?

I love my vices. Indulge in them without shame, though with due consideration for those who consider them evil and intolerable. So who am I to judge other people’s?

At this point, I then went on to write another 500 words on the subject, which I’ve now deleted. Because really, what I find hardest bear is the rampant judgement of other people’s vices indulged in the by oh-so-pure and nauseatingly virtuous. To whom my message is simple: Get back to me when you’ve overcome the vices of self-righteousness, arrogance and intolerance.

    I loved your post. I saw that DP, too, and just wanted to write about the positive side of things for a change. Let’s write about the things we appreciate in the people around us.

    • Thank you. Getting away from ‘self’ altogether would be good, but unfortunately any attempts I’ve made so far to write outside the prompts have tended to be ignored. Not the end of the world – I don’t understand the stats anyway – but I guess we all like a bit of validation from time to time!

    Helen love your thoughts! I can’t remember if I thanked you for your follow, but thank you any way. Self righteously yours, Barbara
