Writer's Block: Under Protest
Have you ever participated in a boycott? What did you boycott and why?

I refuse to shop at Walmart. I haven't shopped there in about 4 years. Whenever anyone finds this out, they cleverly ask, "Has Walmart noticed yet?" But think, I don't shop there, my parents and my sister don't shop there. That's 4 people. What if EVERYONE refused to shop there? You have to start somewhere.

One word. Boring. Sums you up to a tee. You're responsible, trustworthy, serious and down to earth. Boring. Boring. Boring.

You play by the rules. You follow tradition. You encourage structure.

You insist that EVERYBODY do EVERYTHING by the book. Seriously, is there even an ounce of imagination in that little brain of yours? I mean, what's the point of imagination, right? It has no practical value...

As far as you're concerned, abstract theories can go screw themselves. You just want the facts, all the facts and nothing but the facts.

Oh. And you're a perfectionist. About everything. You know that the previous sentence was gramattically incorrect and that "gramattically" was spelt wrong. Your financial records are correct to 25 decimal places and your bedroom is in pristine condition. In fact, you even don't sleep on your bed anymore for fear that you might crease the sheets.

Thankfully, you don't have anyone else to share the bed with, because you're uncomfortable expressing affection and emotion to others. Too bad.
