Household Critters: Part 2
So, the other household critter on the menu? Me. Yep, that's right. Let me go ahead and let the cows into the cornfield here.
I judge you for the following: a bad attitude, a good attitude, the books you read, how much TV you watch, the music you listen to, the cosmetic condition of your shoes, your car, your diction, your obedience of the law, your disobedience of the same, the cleanliness of your house, the cosmetic condition of your Bible, your lack/abundance of jewelry and/or facial hair, your bed time, what time you get up, your diet, your approach to education, the color of your skin, the way you say certain words, the words you fail to say, the clothes you wear, and the amount of time I see you during the day.
That said, I am guilty of the following: a bad attitude, a good attitude, the books I read, how much TV I watch, the music I listen to, the cosmetic condition of my shoes, my car, my diction, my obedience of the law, my disobedience of the same, the cleanliness of my house, the cosmetic condition of my Bible, my lack of jewelry and abundance of facial hair, my bed time, what time I get up, my diet, my approach to education, the color of my skin, the way I say certain words, the words I fail to say, the clothes I wear, and the amount of time you see me during the day.

Let us drink up, my friends, to the hammer-song of shattering pretenses.
