The Wonderous World of Haterade
I remember the first time I heard the word Hater. What used to be strictly found in rap songs is now an often heard vocabulary word.
Contrary to what might be taught on MTV Cribs, a Hater is not merely someone who envies someone else.
A Hater is also someone who just wants to bring people down a notch. I like to think I could never be such a thing. But I am sure, as with many things, there is sliding scale of Haterville.
From someone sweet as candy to the girl that belongs on the Real Housewives of Dirtyville. And as nice as we might be, I think anyone can be susceptible to unsavory behavior from time to time.
And while you aren't quite drinking from the firehose, this is what I like to call having a tiny sip of Haterade. For example:
You are having a tiny sip of Haterade if you mock Jessica Simpson and her crappy music but still know AND SING all the words to Hit Me Baby One More Time.
Or if you openly criticize people who watch The Hills and The OC but you watch every episode of Gossip Girl AND know all names of all characters.
Ditto if you belittle Harry Potter fans but you yourself are a Twihard.
Or if you can not stand it when people type LOL or LMBO but you LOVE to type OMG and WTF.
Or if you say things like "I can NOT believe any adult would watch High School Musical!" yet you still dance around and sing every word to every song in Grease. Zac Efron is this decade's Danny Zuko. How does that haterade taste?
And you are having a tiny sip of Haterade if you smirk at someone's PRADO bag because its fake, but you bought yours over in Chinatown in NYC for $75.
Or if you are man, lamenting about some "poor musclehead fool" in his "tight tshirt" yet, you go home and stand in front of the mirror flexing, and sucking in your stomach at the same time.Continued on the next page
