Coffee Shop Talk: Annoying Men, Missions, and Eating Ten Cockroaches
[box_light]Ed. note: This is B. She’s our weekly Q&A writer and will be answering questions from a female perspective (naturally). You can find her subsection under “Faith.” Do you have a question or comment? Send it to us on Facebook, Twitter, via email, or in the comments, and we’ll do our best to have her answer it in future weeks.[/box_light]
1. What annoys you most about men?
I only get to pick one thing? Oh boy.
No–––just kidding! The thing that annoys me the most [or at least is in the top three things] is when men objectify women. I think it annoys me even more when it’s supposed “Christian” men who are being just as bad as men of the world. Women, or at least me, do NOT enjoy being whistled at or groped or spoken to crudely. We are not a dog and will not respond as one. Honestly, what do you achieve by whistling as you drive by… besides royally ticking me off?
Also, while at the gym–––please leave me alone. I really don’t think my beat red, sweaty face has the whole “come hither” look going on. Let me do my thing; you go on doing yours. Thank you.
Guys: just be a gentleman okay? Talk kindly, give compliments [that you actually mean] and look at her eyes. And maybe, just maybe… you’ll get a number or a date.
2. Which do you prefer: short-term or long-term missions?
I am so passionate about missions that I really don’t think I can pick!! I would say for me personally, long-term. I would love to be somewhere for more than 2 weeks and really drench myself in the culture and the people. Living somewhere long term opens up doors for honest connections and more heart-to-hearts to take place. I’m not saying that can’t happen in short term trips, but there’s a sense of trust and true friendship that can form.
I think EVERYONE should go on a short-term trip once in their life. I’m not saying that you’ll leave wanting to be a full term missionary. Heck, you may never go on a trip again. But I can promise you the experience is life-altering and you will never be the same.
3. Would you rather eat ten cockroaches every day for the rest of your life or never smell again?
Ha Ha Ha! YES! I ask people these random “would you rather” questions all the time! The more disgusting and creative, the better, I say! This is a pretty good one. After much thought, I would have to say that I’d rather eat ten cockroaches every day. In some countries they’re a delicacy right? They can’t be all that bad…
Yeah, okay. Let’s get real–––it’s flipping disgusting!
I couldn’t imagine not smelling coffee roasting, newborn babies’ heads, Christmas dinner cooking, or pumpkin spice candles. Pass the cockroaches on over, I’m digging in.
