I Believe… [Things I Can Do Without]
…that, aside from venereal disease and being centipeded to someone who only eats Taco Bell, I can't think of almost anything I'd want less than a foldable smartphone.
…that (and I've said this before but it bears repetition) it doesn't mean I didn't listen to you if I end up disagreeing with you. It means you were ineffective in persuading me your point wasn't crap.
…that, aside from a foldable smartphone and having a giant boil on my neck, I can't think of almost anything I'd want less than to have to listen to a white ally lecture me on privilege.
…that problems (from huge, societal ones to fixing the hole in the heel of your favorite socks) do not solve themselves and solutions come from pragmatic thought rather than extreme passion.
…that, aside from a privilege lecture from a white person and being forced to grate my balls with a cheese grater, I can't think of almost anything I'd want less than Mike Pence as the President.
