This has been rolling around my mind today. Pet Peeves. I know you have one, more than one probably. I have said that phrase more than once.
I am developing a critical way of thinking in my student-ness. So, I broke this down. Pet. What is a pet? Something dependent on your care. You love it, you feed it, you make sure it grows up and lives with you a long time. You cuddle it. You carry photos of it. Some of us spend alot of time and money nurturing pets.
Peeve. A source of annoyance or something that irritates you.
Put them together.
Here's what I think. Why would we want to nurture, cuddle, feed, and love something that annoys and irritates??
Just think about it.
