i wrote a song… in my mind

can’t go back

with 3 comments

you know how sometimes you try something out and it completely changes your life?  and once you’ve tried that thing, you can’t go back to the older, less satisfying things?  for instance, maybe you’ve gone to a restaurant for years because they have the best X.  a friend introduces you to a new place that has better X that makes your restaurant’s X look like a pile of puke.  restaurant A then goes out of business because you solely visit restaurant B due to superior X.  that kind of thing.

here are some things that have messed up my life in such a way:

– $1 bowling: there is no way i will ever be able to pay 2.99 a game again.  brunswick lanes on spalding, you have ruined my bowling life.

– rain-x: if you’ve used rain-x, you know how awesome it is.  you also know how pathetic-ly poor regular wiper blades are when it comes to wicking away the rain from your windshield.  the difference is night and day.

– hdtv: have you ever tried going from an hdtv to an analog tube tv?  how did we ever watch tv like that?  i can’t even read words on those tv’s anymore.

– parents’ cooking: there are certain foods your parents just make the best of that no restaurant can touch.  for me, it’s naeng myun (cold korean beef noodle soup – i know it sounds weird, but it tastes a lot better than it sounds in english).  i can’t order naeng myun ANYWHERE.  trust me, i’ve tried, and each time i’m disappointed vowing never to order it again.  and then i do it anyways…

– charmin: no matter what, i will shell out the extra bucks or wait til charmin’s on sale to get it.  yes, charmin the toilet paper.  i’ve tried all the other tp’s and charmin’s the one that is true to its word – doesn’t leave pieces, soft and strong.  i’ve learned my lesson, i can’t go back to scott, cottonelle, angel soft, etc.  it’s over.

– kettle cooked chips: i just can’t eat regular potato chips after having tried kettle cooked.  i mean, they should just stop making regular lays, cause i’m not gonna buy them.  kettle cooked is where it’s at.

what are some things that have ruined your life so that you can’t go back to the old things?
