The political climate has turned good friends into hated enemies of late. Especially on social media. This grand idea of changing people’s minds about their beliefs – because that’s so likely 😉 – may, at some point, die down. Or not, but some of you may need to take a breather.So what to do if you have spent months only posting political points of view, and aren’t sure how to even connect otherwise with anyone? It can be like learning to walk again after a crippling accident. Or me learning to drink again after 8 years of pregnancy and nursing. (Don’t worry, I found my way.) I didn’t want to see anybody going through that struggle, so I thought maybe I could be of assistance. Get your soap boxes ready. And, GO!
This may not be a new argument to some of you, but I feel it has been pushed to the side lately. It deserves a little more attention again. Just start your post with “I’m a Steelers’ fan.” The rest will work itself out.
#2 LOW FAT VS. LOW CARB
Which is it? If I cut out the fat, then I can’t put butter on my veggies, so however will I eat them? You just want me to die. Low carb? You’ve lost your $@#*ing mind! How will I sop up the gravy without a big hearty biscuit? This whole thing is as ridiculous as calories in vs. calories out. Wait . Maybe that one isn’t supposed to be a one or the other. Oh, it might be both at the same time. No wonder I’m fat. I’ll worry about that while you all attack each others eating habits. Let me tell you, if you want to make and keep friends, say things like, “Are you going to eat THAT?”
#3 DISH VS. CABLE
I’m just going to call you out and say you’re un-American if you can’t argue about this. Cable is so expensive, and then it comes at you, dancing around in its underwear offering you packages. Of course, Dish goes out when it rains, so there’s that.
#4 DOGS VS. CATS
We’ve been talking about crazy cat ladies for years. Crazy dog people are finally finding their voice. There are so many pros and cons to consider. I mean, dogs drag their butts on the carpet! Then again, so do my kids. Cats go potty inside the house, but often miss their target. Oh, now I’m seeing it. If you can deal with your kids you can probably deal with either one. Just argue about which looks more ridiculous dressed up in clothes.
#5 WHO WORE IT BEST?
Of course, I’m talking about Batman’s cape. I’ve seen people almost THROW DOWN in a discussion about Michael Keaton vs. Christian Bale. Get that one started again. It’s never boring. Or non-geeky.
There it is. A list of topics you can argue about with your social media audience until everyone unfriends you. You’re welcome.
