I Hate the Beach

    Is It So Strange?

    I do not like the beach; I never have and I never will.  When I tell people this, they always look at me like I have four heads.  (Which is ridiculous; I would never even consider having an even number of heads!)  I, however, don't think it is that strange. ...

    Wjy Don't They Get It?

    My family has been hassling me for years to join them at the beach. I like the beach well enough in the autumn or the winter, when I can walk along a lonely stretch of it and watch the ocean. But I can't stand it in the summer, packed with overweight, underdressed people. I can...

    What???? There Really Is Others Out There??

    I can't stand the beach.  It stinks, it's polluted, dead things all around, and sand gets eveeeerywhere.  I hate swimming so water isn't really a turn on either.  Go figure though, I live on an island.  How's that for irony??

    Glad I'm Not the Only One.

    I was born and raised on the beach.  Cape Hatteras, NC.  I've got lots of good memories, as a little girl.  But, everything's fascinating when you're little. Nowadays, there's no way in hell I'll set foot on a beach.  Here's a fairly extensive listing of...

    I can't stand the beach. The sand gets in every single thing, even when said thing/s have not even touched any sand! It drives me crazy! Plus, they're always packed, and I can't say I enjoy stripping down in front of a large group of people... That's why I love having your own...
