I’ve run across this fun “tag” on several blogs lately (like Gabi’s and Trina’s and Adrienne’s), and it seemed perfect for my Random Tuesday ramblings today. In fact, it’s really a perfectly fun little “getting to know me” exercise that should result in some really fun revelations about my new blogging friends (as long as you join in the fun!).
Has anyone ever called you weird? All of us definitely have “weird” tendencies and personality quirks—they’re some of the things that make us unique.
1—I take two (sometimes three, if I can get away with it) baths everyday! I prefer baths to showers and take one in the morning and at night every day. I love them steaming hot, like them with bubbles (although I don’t have to have them), and often read while I’m lying in there. And I like them to last as long as possible!
(One of my favorite stories that I heard for the first time just a year or so ago came from Mom, who said she vividly remembers visiting her grandmother and how Mama Graham would out-of-the-blue say she was going to take a bath. She’d lug out the old tin wash tub, send everyone away, and take a bath on her back porch—sometimes in the middle of the day. I love knowing that a love-for-baths runs in my family and that perhaps I got it from my great-grandmother!)
2— I go barefoot as much as possible! As soon as I walk into my house, off go my shoes! I think I went barefoot my whole entire childhood and today I go san-shoes as much as I can. (Look down at my feet in church and chances are that my shoes are lying underneath the pew! And if I’m stuck at any event for more than a few hours, my shoes have to come off and I have to go barefoot the rest of the time.) And I guess my children have taken my lead, because they are barefoot until the minute they have to leave the house.
3—I have an unusually weird aversion to mayonnaise. I can’t eat anything with mayonnaise on it; I refuse to touch a jar of it; I won’t even buy a jar of it from the store (if
4—I can stand on my head for at least a minute straight (I used to could do it for five or six minutes straight, but I guess my head’s getting softer as I get older. Lol), can still do cartwheels and backbends, can still do the splits, and can do that weird “wrap your legs all up around each other in some sort of yoga version of Indian-style sitting”). It’s harder to do these things at 38 than it was at 12, but I’m still proud that I can!
5—I’m an Out Loud Laugher. I never really thought this was weird, because I’ve always laughed out loud at jokes, tv shoes, movies, books, or just something funny that someone says. I thought everyone did it! Then I married
Can you identify with any of those things? Do you share any of that “weirdness” with me? And what are five weird things about you? (Post them here for all of us to enjoy—lol—or post them on your blog and let us know about it!)
Hope everyone has a wonderful (and not too weird) Tuesday!!!
