Oh, the Dichotomy!

I’m the editor of a boating magazine, but I’m not a boater and I would never own a boat.

For as long as I’ve been alive, I have lived within a few miles of the ocean, but I have no particular affinity for the beach and no compulsion to go swimming in anything but a pool.

Every day, I drive a car, use the telephone, cook in a microwave and listen to music on a CD player. Yet I have utterly no idea how any of these things actually work.

I love to read, but I’ve read maybe three books in the last five years.

I’m not attractive, but I want to be with an attractive woman.

I’m profoundly offended by the idea of smoking or experimenting with any illegal drugs, but recently I found the idea of a sexy female friend smoking pot to be an unfathomable turn-on.

I’m a wordsmith, but one of my most difficult chores is writing lyrics to my own songs.

I love to travel and stay in hotel rooms, but I’m petrified of flying.

And the older I get, the more I want to re-experience my childhood.

Dichotomy? Hypocrisy? Insanity? Or all three?

I'd say a little of each.

What are the major contradictions in your life?

I insist on using Fab detergent, yet I've never tried New Fab with lemmon-fresh borax.

This is a test to see if I can comment on comments to my own blog. I don't really have anything else to add to what Mr Kennedy already shared. He said it all, man. He said it all.

I also misspelled "lemon".

Blah blah blah blah blah.

Aha! I could not see my comments on AOL, so I thought they weren't posting. But I can see them using Explorer. Doug Kennedy ROCKS!
