What I'm For

Have you heard the song, "What I'm For" by Pat Green? (Of course not, since most of you don't have every single radio preset tuned to country music stations.) Anyway, the song lists several types of people, places, and things that the artist appreciates, and at the end of the chorus he sings, "You don't have to guess what I'm against, if you know what I'm for." I began to think about what I'm for, and since I love lists oh so much, here they are[in no particular order]:
  • Country music (duh). And not the modern, guitar-driven, glittery shirt-wearin', faux hawk-stylin', appearing on The Late Show kinda country. I'm talking 'bout Alan Jackson, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Geroge Strait, The Statler Brothers, George Jones, etc.
  • Hot dogs cooked over a fire
  • Chevy trucks
  • Singing the National Anthem
  • Football (particularly the Ohio State Buckeyes)
  • Starbucks Coffee Company
  • Reading instead of watching TV
  • Playing outside instead of watching TV
  • Clearance racks
  • Card games
  • Grass stains
  • Church on Sunday morning
  • Rugged men (cowboys, lumberjacks, muscle-bound Jews, etc.)
  • Paying with cash
  • Road trips
  • Family get togethers
  • Clorox Bleach
  • Tent camping
  • Corporal punishment
  • Cold beer (with or without the "root")
  • Fat jeans
  • Martha Stewart
  • Social justice
  • Physical fitness
  • Acceptance (not to be confused with tolerance)
  • Hard work
  • $5 pizzas
  • Pretending to be high class
  • Simple living
  • 401(k)'s
  • Motorcycles
  • Lunch breaks*

*And with that being said, I'll stop for now. I'm curious to know what some of you are "for."
