SOLSC23: Things I like/dislike

In my NYT Morning News email yesterday, Susan Sontag’s list of likes and dislikes was linked, so I used it as my mentor text!

Things I like: milk chocolate KitKats, handwritten notes, The Oh Hellos, notebooks, Elizabeth Acevedo, bookstores, getting a Thai massage, the New York Times, coloring books, Wordle, hands, live readings, writing workshops, Canada Dry ginger ale, sour punch bites, caldo de pollo, setting my alarm clock, coffee, vodka cranberries, chips & queso, Julius Caesar, the number 9, picture books, laundry, reading captions, road trips.

Things I dislike: social media push notifications, crayons, staying in hotels, being in a reading rut, drivers who don’t use blinkers, scoring low on the NYT weekly news quiz, shopping, Ernest Hemingway, Romeo and Juliet, Adam Sandler, mint chocolate, goat hairs, heavy metal music, pink lemonade, wearing skirts, Houston’s humidity, clothes hangers, doing the dishes, chipped nail polish, traffic.

    Great format – I’ll have to pull it out when I am in a rut. I can’t help but think there must be more of a story (or slice) behind why you dislike goat hairs. It is rare to come across them.
    I am with you on the chipped nail polish, which leads me to look at my toes, and remind myself that yes it is time to get a new pedi.

    I also saw this in the NYT and added it to my potential “to-write” list! I love how you did it and I agree that there is so much to learn about someone by knowing their likes and dislikes!

    I dislike drivers who pass you right before coming to an exit and then get off at that exit. This is a great format. With 12 days left to the challenge and ideas running low I will need to remember this and give it a try, Thanks for the inspiration.

      Juliette, I posted my slice and then almost immediately after, opened the email with Ethical ELAs “Pile of Good Things” – I was stunned!!! Glad you noticed too!
