I'm quirky and I love it!

November 18, 2012

People are funny, wouldn't you agree? Everyone has those little quirky idiosyncrasies that make us all unique and at the same time make us giggle when you see people do them. Well I definitely have a few of those, and I thought you might get a laugh from reading about mine.

1) I abolutely HATE touching someone else's warm change. I will drop it immmediately if you hand it to me. It's gross. My mind just starts to race with where that money was that caused it to be warm. Don't deny that you do the same thing.

2) With the theme of warm things, I also can't stand sitting on a warm seat.  The same logic as #1 applies.  I don't know what you did to cause that seat to be warm, so I will stand beside the seat for a solid minute or more for it to cool down first. I am okay with the fact that I look crazy, I've already come to terms with it.

3) If there is a spider within 10 feet or less from me, you can guarantee I will scream like a 6 year old boy and run away. I will also make anyone around me go deal with it before I step foot back into the room.

4) I have a secret love for vinegar. I have been known to drink it from time to time. You can stop saying she's crazy to the screen now, you wouldn't be the first to tell me that.

5) When I go up flights of stairs, I always have to make sure I switch the leg that starts the next set of stairs. Don't want to treat one leg better then the other... That makes perfect sense right? no?

6) I refuse to wear winter type shoes until the last possible day where I just start to look insane.  To me, flats are completely acceptable until there is about a foot or two of snow. It's a fight with mother nature that I refuse to lose.

7) I love romantic walks on the beach, but it makes me quiver the feeling of my dry bare feet on the dry sand. I can't stand it. I'm the cool person that has to get their feet wet, then walk in the sand.

8) When I am nervous, I smile. It's an awkward smile, and I still to this day can't understand my body and it's reasoning behind it. It has gotten me into trouble too. I swear I'm not meaning to grin if you are telling me bad news. Of course my body can't give me a normal nervous reaction like sweaty palms, or pacing or something. I'll even take a twitchy eye. Thanks a lot mom and dad.

9) I clear my throat often, and always at the most inopportune time.

10) I am paranoid that I will one day burn my house down by leaving my hair straightener on.  When I leave in the mornings, I will go back at least 2 or 3 times to check to the plug in make sure everything is unplugged. I will admit to have already been driving, turn around, and go home just to check one more time, even though I know 100% it's unplugged. Clearly my brain like to play pranks on me like that. "What a sucker, I'll make her think there is a 0.00087% chance it's still on and she'll go check anyways." Well played brain, you win.

I could probably add 20 more things to this list, but I'll save those for another day. 

I hope you had a giggle at these, but we all have them and you have to embrace them. That's what life is all about.


  1. 1. I love vinegar so much that I drink the pickle juice straight up after polishing off a jar.

    2. I CANNOT stand the feel of cotton. It feels like you have arthritis in your hands. The worst thing about winter is when people pull their gloves off with their teeth.. I cant handle it. ugh. I choose to be thrown in a pit full of spiders over cotton balls its that intense.

    3. I have a strict routine while eating Japanese oranges. it starts with the perfect one piece peel and ends with splitting it in half and slowly eating it piece by piece. It is disrespectful to the joy of eating a xmas orange if you eat more than one piece at a time.

    4. When I am intensely thinking about something I have a automatic tendency to glare and furrow my brows so it looks like I am super pissed off. It has gotten me in trouble a few times but it is for some reason my instinct for my brain to work more efficiently.

    5. I hate when people I don't know touch me. There has to be a level of trust or approval established before my personal space breaks down and it is okay to initiate contact. I will literally back away if someone puts their hand on me that I am not comfortable with.

    6. I sing a lot while I do tasks. Not songs, but just sounds in general. I find life is a lot more animated & entertaining while singing "bamamam baa boop badeee" or something along those lyrics. I have been known to make ridiculous sound effects during any occasion, if its appropriate or not.


  2. Ohhh all good ones! Pickle juice drinking party? :)
