I mean, it takes special people to write about their lives or thoughts & post them every day... we're all weird together.
So let me think if I can come up with 10 things... after all, I think I'm pretty normal & sane. (keep your comments to yourself Ricky)
ONE // I can't stand the C-Word stuff
Most of you that know me already know which C-word I'm referring to. Cereal. Ugh. No. Gross. Disgusting. No no no NOOOOOOOO.
|How I am when I see it on TV or in a movie|
I guess some people think this is weird actually. Especially the extent that it reaches for me. Like, I cant even tolerate going down the C-Aisle in a store because I swear, I smell that disgusting stuff. It smells like sweaty underarms to me. #truth
& I've been like this my whole life. It's not a thing that came on after a bad experience. My mom said I used to sit in my baby high chair & gag when she even tried to feed me baby C-Stuff... like Lady Gaga said, I was born this way.
TWO // I think water is better then Tylenol
I know the body is mostly made up of water, so to me, logically - acting like Dr. Spock now I guess - I think water can heal up a lot of things. Headache? Drink water. Have a cold? Break out the ice & drink up. Bullet wound? Where's the Evian!... ok... maybe not that extreme. But almost. I feel like its all about flushing out the system.
& now, if you need me, I'll be peeing for the 39th time today.
THREE // Journals
I can't stop buying them. I love to journal - love having journals.
I've always wrote in diaries since as long as I can remember. Those kind with the lock where the key would bend if the wind blew? yeah baby! But I've always just felt like I NEED a journal with me. To write down my thoughts, my prayers, my day, my calories, my to-do list. EVERYTHING! I can't get enough. Let me go down a aisle that has journals & I'm walking away with one. Guaranteed.
(Side note - if I'm ever famous, I'll have the best notes for a great autobiography)
FOUR // Office Supplies
On that note - I'll also add in my weird obsession with pens & pencils & office supplies. Let me go into a Staples or Office Depot & I can just stare for hours. All the pens! So many to try! & right now, with school getting ready to start? I'm in my own personal heaven. All these kids with their lists standing in front of the goods - I'm right there reaching over them like I have a child with a list of their own. Nope - I just want new pens & new notebooks myself. & give me those paper clips & dry markers too.
FIVE // Peanut butter & jelly
I've never in my life had a peanut butter & jelly sandwich. Yes. I am a 40-something woman & never had one. Not sure why. Just never had one. & not sure I want one at this point. It doesn't sound appealing to me.
SIX // Song Lyrics
SEVEN // Lost items
When we go out somewhere, like a concert, the zoo, an event, or even the movies - I panic wondering where my keys are. Or my cell phone. Or my wallet. I check my purse like 10 times to make sure they are still there. Because what if I looked & then left my purse open & they fell out while I was looking the original time to make sure they are there. It's really quite OCD of me.
|Basically what I do to my purse a dozen times|
EIGHT // Animals have Families too
Maybe its too much Disney in my life but I always feel like animals have families somewhere waiting for them. That bug you just smashed? His wife is at home with all their bug children waiting for their daddy to return. Reason why I don't kill any bugs.
* The family theory also goes for rats, bunnies, deer, lions - any animal. Disney proves it time & again.
BONUS - I talk to animals like they totally understand what I'm saying. I also blame Disney for this
NINE // Center of an aisle
If I don't get near the end of an aisle in the movies or at a concert, I am a nervous wreck. Maybe its a bit of claustrophobia but all I can think about is the need to pee & not wanting to bother the people around me. Now, if I'm at the end of an aisle, I probably will never need to go to the bathroom - its just the idea of the idea that I can't get out easily. I'm also freaked out about the idea of needing to get out of a place quickly & if I'm stuck in the middle of a row? I might as well just lay down & die in an emergency.
TEN // Germs & holding my breath
When someone around me sneezes, I hold my breath for 10 seconds... longer if I can. Anyone ever see that movie Outbreak where that disease kills everyone after breathing in the germ? & it started with a guy sneezing in a crowd of people... they slowed down the 'sneeze' & showed people inhaling the germs... ewwwwwwwwwww.... that always stuck with me. That movie came out in 1995 so you do the math. Ever since I saw that, when someone sneezes around me, I hold my breath so I don't inhale anything - hoping all the germs settle without going into my nose. & yes, I will cover my face if possible at the same time to block my nose & mouth. At least I don't wear a gas mask... yet....
BONUS - I'll also put sanitizer around my nose to kill germs. I'm all about killing germs & not getting sick!
So there's just SOME of my weirdness... I thought I'd struggle with coming up with 10 - I actually thought of a whole other list. Ahh - everyone has their own weird to them - right? ... right?....
Make me feel better... tell me something weird about you.
