It's okay that I don't like Dr. Seuss
The Cat in the Hat
I know. Everyone loves these. They love them now and they loved them when they were kids. I was supposed to love them too - but I didn't.
Here's what I thought then and still think now:
The Cat in the Hat is a rude jerk. He's the typical toxic friend. He comes in to your life, promises lots of fun, makes an insane mess of everything, then leaves you to justify--or in this case lie about--what happened to someone you love. I know he cleans up the mess, but to me that's not enough. The lie lingers.
