Au contraire!

Life is filled with contradictions.
Here are some of mine:

I am a pacifist,
but football is my guilty pleasure.

I don't watch "t.v.",
but I'm hooked on tight ends and Downton Abbey.

I'm into healthy food, 
but I eat French fries and potato chips.

I'd do a rain dance for a stormy day,
but I don't like to be cold or damp.

I long for new adventures,
but have been in love with the same man for 50 years.
I've lived in the same house for 44 years.

I'm a realist,
but happily cheer on dreamers.

I'm conventional (read=a bit boring),
but I'm drawn to much that is bohemian.

I think flying is a fantastic way to get somewhere,
but I hate the flight.

I love Scrabble,
but am not a good speller.

I live a simple, (kind of) close-to-nature urban life,
but I shave my armpits and legs on a regular basis.

I guess inconsistencies are a part of every life.
I know they help to keep me from taking myself too seriously.
Ha! Ha!
