Today is National Loyalty Day! Jessica Tholmer

I am loyal to exclamation points, so I am going to use them so much in this post!

Okay, so loyalty is pretty much my favorite virtue, and since I am a Leo, it is in all of the blood in my body. I am so loyal to the things I choose to love that I have literally gotten into legitimate fights with people who say mean things about people like Justin Bieber, a person I do not actually know, but a person I have chosen to love, which means I will love him forever.

I had a crush on Ricky Martin, Leonardo DiCaprio and Bow Wow growing up. I still like those people, and in fact, the DiCaprio loyalty is severe: I have literally stopped talking to people who don’t like him because I am so passionate about his talent. (Martin and Bow, not so much.)

I am the most loyal friend one can have. I told a man off in a bar not so long ago for something he did to my best friend five years ago, and my best friend isn’t even my friend anymore, yet I am still loyal to her. I don’t even want to be, I just can’t help it!

I once almost beat up a girl in a gas station for something her brother almost did to my brother.

I don’t listen to the Backstreet Boys because I am loyal to N’Sync, a group that hasn’t existed for years.

I don’t watch Finding Nemo because it was the first animated film to break The Lion King‘s box office record. 

I refused to see The Dark Knight in the movie theater because there were rumors that it might make more money than Titanic.

I still don’t watch movies with Helen Hunt in them because Kate Winslet should have won Best Actress in 1997.

I still have my “John Kerry” campaign stickers to put on the next car I may or may not own.

I stopped watching American Idol in season 5 because Jennifer Hudson got kicked off and I was loyal to her.

But seriously being loyal is really important because it sets your moral standards, and it proves that you are a good friend, lover, wife, husband, daughter, son, sister, brother, employee, or whatever else you call yourself.

I think I have gotten crazy enough with the things I am loyal to, so how about you tell me about yourselves now? Let me hear your loyalties roar, guys!

  2. Yay for loyalty! I have been banging on about how important it is recently, I fear it’s an overlooked virtue. But loyalty to me is so important, if I care about someone, I’ll be loyal to them and always have their back.

  3. I’m so loyal to you, I don’t know that I’ve ever commented on another HG writer’s post. Oh, there was that one time. But it pitted by loyalty to you against my loyalty to The West Wing….

  4. My mom. I’m a passive doormat type but I will scratch eyeballs over my mama. Also, The OC, cats in general, Saturday Night Live, my home state, and I’m fairly sure I’ll be loyal to Jennifer Lawrence for a long, long time.
