DAILY PROMPT: NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP
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.
