The Eleventh thing

We were all a bit gobsmacked in our household to hear of the death of Heath Ledger. One of his lesser known movies Ten Things I hate about you is one of my  favourite movies of all time. Wesat down and watchged it only last week. It is a take off of the Taming of the Shrew and at the end of it the erstwhile Caterina reads a poem she has written abvout their tragi-comic love affair.
It goes:
I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car.
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you're always right.
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call.
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you.
Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

One can only add the eleventh... I hate the appalling waste!
