Things That Make You Go Eeeew…!

There are lots of these things in my life. More than I thought actually.

The list once upon a time pretty much consisted of:
Brussel sprouts
and so on…. Stuff that I just didn’t really want to put in my mouth.


Then, I got a little bit older and the list changed a little bit:
Spots (with icky puss stuff in them)
Romance novels
Neighbours (yes, the TV show)
Spiders (in fact anything bug-like or creepy-crawly)
Make up
Take That


Then, I got even older and realised that some of the stuff on the previous two lists had stayed while some had left. Which left the list kinda looking like this:
Eastenders (and any other freakin soap)
TV in general
Spots (with icky puss stuff in them)
Men (at least boys have an excuse for being gross; men are grown ups!)
Spiders and all bug kind (yes, even including ladybirds)


All kinda superficial actually. Not that it bothers me much, because I was superficial back then. More recently however, I look at the list again and realise that there is much more out there that makes me cringe, shudder, wince or flee for the hills and I’m not just talking about mushrooms. My list now includes:
Unnecessary or forced swearing (to look ‘cool’)
Cheap scare tactics in ‘horror films’
Reality TV
Skid marks on the toilet bowl
Badly written erotica
People who complain without realising how good they have it
Certain brio pens (random, yes, but some are really rubbish; I only use Bic now)
The Post Office
Pop music (and Hip Hop actually)
Red nail varnish (on me)


And its all for different reasons. However…! There was something I saw today that makes me think no matter how old I get, no matter how my tastes evolve, no matter how many times the world turns and all the things around me change for better or worse, there is one thing that will now, and always feature in the top end of my Eeeew List.

And that is this:
Dirty, abandoned condom.

Have a good day everyone! 😛

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    Have you had a diaper poopsplosion yet? Babies add a whole bunch of things to that list! 😉


    • Funnily enough, yes! Just yesterday while we were out in a cafe. Michael did want seemed like a totally innocent fart until Dave points out I have ‘something on my dress.’
      Further inspection shows that its a massive slick of bright yellow poop slowly oozing down my legs.
      Getting to the bathroom was a nightmare and when we got there he was just COVERED in it. I had no idea they could explode quite like that.
      I suppose there’s more to come too. o.O
