I'm Weird & I Know It


I'm weird. Yes, I admit it. I think all of us are. Some of you may not want to say so, but you are.
What makes me want to say this? Well I was doing something that I think is weird the other day and thought..."I wonder if other people would think this is weird?" I assume it's weird because I'm me...and I guess I don't think other people think or do these things.

Enough of talking about it and just saying the word weird. Let's talk about what I think makes me so WEIRD.

I find things that I suddenly like, such as coleslaw, and then become obsessed. Let me explain, about 6 months ago I decided to try coleslaw. I liked what I had. I then made it my personal mission to try coleslaw on every menu that carries said food. Most of these places did not have tasty coleslaw, so I should have stopped a long time ago. I haven't...still checking out coleslaw all around town.

I have to shut all our closet doors before I can fall asleep in bed. I will lay there and stare at the closet doors and sometimes imagine or wish that they could close themselves. 9 times out of 10...well, almost always I ask Chuck to get up and close them. (His side of the bed is closer, in my defense) It has got to the point that he closes them before he gets in bed because he knows what will happen an hour later if he doesn't.

When I stand around the house, I take the position of a flamingo. No joke. One leg perched up on the other, minus the hunched over back part. I have done it since I was little. It's actually quite comfortable, but not normal....weird. Try it sometime if you like, it's fun.

I periodically go through my old clothes and donate them. I also on the other hand am pretty fond of shopping. One thing I haven't bought new since high school...sports bras. It's quite ridiculous and I can't believe I'm admitting it. But I can't justify spending all that money on a damn sports bra that just gets sweaty and gross. A regular bra...oh yea, all day I could shop in Victoria's Secret. Not a sports bra though. These girls are shoved in there like sardines...it's pretty funny getting ready to work out. I laugh at myself every single time. Oh well.

What makes you weird? 
I promise I won't laugh...well, I might giggle.

  2. I don't do some of these but I get this way with food too. I'll usually want to try something new and then that's all I'll want to eat for a long period of time.

  5. Yess!! The closet doors must always be closed before bed! It's like sleeping with the lights off. It's part of my nightly routine; put my pjs on, turn the fan on, close the closet doors, play on my phone :)
