3 thoughts on “What Did You Hate That You Now Love?”

  1. While I am not a fan of most country music, my introduction to folk, Americana, and bluegrass helped coax me into listening to (and then loving) a number of songs by Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, Alison Krauss, and Dolly Parton.

  2. When I first moved to Washington DC as an intern I didn’t like the place. Maybe it was because DC is much more fun if you have money. Or because I didn’t know anyone and it was much harder to meet people than it was in college. A few years later I decided it was great. I’ve loved the place ever since.

    I also used to hate IPAs. Not the hazy ones, I still don’t like them much. I’m talking about really hoppy West Coast IPAs. Then in 1997-ish I went to a beer tasting with Garrett Oliver (founder and brewer at Brooklyn Brewing) at a place called the Brickskeller. I went in thinking I wasn’t going to enjoy it much. I came out a hophead and have been one ever since!

  3. Nothing is coming immediately to mind. Most of the things I took an instant disliking to (coffee, smoking, Tom Petty, beer, green bell peppers) I still dislike.

    The one exception might be biking. It took me a looong time to learn to ride a bike, as I was scared I was going to fall over and hurt myself. But of course, now I can’t imagine my life without it.
