Fancy Frappuccino Friday: Unpopular Opinions

The Amusing Muse Fancy Frappuccino Friday: Unpopular Opinions

Recently on Twitter, there has been a hashtag getting a lot of attention: #ConfessYourUnpopularOpinion. There is also the perennial #UnpopularOpinion. In either case, no matter which one you search out, you’re going to find opinions from everyday people and some of those opinions are met with ferocity and downright hostility. People, every day, ordinary citizens all have opinions, unpopular or not, but it’s how we respond to the sharing that is more telling about US than it is about them.

That said, years ago, one of my dear friends showed up at Chez Muse with a gift for yours truly. It was one of those no-special-occasion presents. It was a sign, sort of like Bill Engvall, and as my friend handed it over, she giggled, nearing the point of uncontrollable laughter as I unwrapped the package to find this:

Yes, even YOU are entitled to my opinion!

“Everyone is entitled to my opinion.” I looked at it wryly. I laughed. I asked, “Are you trying to tell me something?” She gave me a sheepish grin in response with a long, drawn-out, “Nooooo!”

I get it. I know I can be opinionated, perhaps even obstinate in my opinions. But, there are opinions for which it does not matter what others think or feel on the topic. So, here is a short list of my “unpopular opinions.”

  1. Lounge/pajama pants are not appropriate for wearing outside of the house unless you’re heading to the emergency room.
  2. Oatmeal raisin cookies are delicious.
  3. Roundabouts are fantastic.
  4. Skinny jeans don’t look good on men.
  5. Everyone should know how to cook, do laundry, and clean their house whether or not they can afford to have someone else (or many else’s) do those things.

Have an unpopular opinion*? Feel free to share in the comments!

*Keep it clean. Keep it nice. No racist, misogynistic, etc., comments will be allowed.

The Amusing Muse is a writer, beekeeper, and Would-Be-Master-Gardener-if-Only-She’d-Finished-the-Courses… But she has slept at a lot of Holiday Inn’s this year. She also is a state and national award winner in horticulture through the National Junior Horticultural Association. On an entirely different note, she’s owned the same pair of Teva flip flops for nearly ten years. That’s a fete in-and-of-itself. (Get it? Fete…. Feet…. *knock knock* Hello?)

    Roundabouts would be fine if the drivers going through them knew how to drive and understood how they are supposed to work. Plus your state has more of them than state we have visited so far……..ugh.

    • Agreed. I end up behind someone at least once every week or two who has no idea how to properly use a roundabout. I have taken to horn-blowing in the years I’ve lived around Madison. I also “shoo” people with hand signals… but thankfully they can’t tell what I’m saying because I rarely get to yelling. 😉
