Am I Weird, or What?


When my children were teenagers, they used to look at me when I did something they thought was too goofy or embarrassing and say, "Mom, you're so weird!"  This was done in a loving tone (mostly).  But if I'm weird, okay.  I don't care!  I guess I am weird in certain ways.

1.  I don't like to grocery shop.  A lot of people do.  It's a no-go for me, if I can help it.  Luckily, my wonderful husband will make the grocery run if I'm not up for it. I'd rather scrub a toilet than grocery shop.  It's not that I love scrubbing toilets; I just don't mind cleaning them.  Someone has to.

2.  I also don't like making sandwiches.  I don't know why.  Maybe all the years I was having to make lunches for my kids as well as myself?  Or maybe it has something to do with the ingredients?  I really don't know!

3.  I'd rather do the dishes than put things away and clean counters.  But we have a system of who does what when the other cooks, so if I cook, I'm stuck doing what I least like to do.  Is that weird?

4.  I have never watched a single episode of Game of Thrones.  That can't be completely weird.  I'm sure there are lots of others who don't.  Please come out of the woodwork and support me on that one!

5.  Maybe I'm weird because I love chicken livers (as long as I have creamy gravy to dip them in), but I can't stand liver if it's pork, beef, or lamb!  I will not-under any circustances-order liver and onions at a restaurant.

This is making me hungry!  Chicken Express makes the best chicken livers!

6.  I'm an adult in my 50's who doesn't drink coffee.  Never have.  I love the smell, but not the taste!  Not even coffee ice cream!  Is that uncommon?

7.  I have eaten a Blizzard from Dairy Queen for lunch once.  Just the Blizzard.  It was awesome!

8.  I like to sing in the car.  I pretend I can hit all the notes just right.  Doesn't everybody?

9.  I watch tons of gruesome true crime TV, listen to true crime podcasts, and read about true crime events... but, if you are starting an IV, I might faint, even if I'm not the one getting the IV!

10. I don't like to talk on the phone unless it's on speaker and I can talk hands free.  Even then, most of the time, a text message will do.  And please don't leave me voicemail.  I will forget to listen to it, then my VM gets clogged up, and people I actually NEED  to talk to are unable to leave a message.

11. I have pretty severe motion sickness.  I won't get on a boat or a ship without my motion sickness patches and some dramamine.  Yes, even cruise ships.  I feel every rock and every movement regardless of the level I am on or the part of the ship I am on.  I'd make a terrible offshoreman!

12.  I'm an adult who loves to color!  Is that really so weird?  I usually find time to color every day.  There are days I can't, but there are more days that I can, and it makes me happy.

13. And last, although I like to sing in the car, if I'm only going to be driving 10-12 minutes, I won't even turn the radio or Spotify on.  Silence is not a bad thing sometimes.  Same thing when I'm on the computer.  If I'm the only person in the room, I will turn the TV off so I can concentrate on what I'm doing on the computer or on the sewing machine. Perhaps that's what makes me weird!

Are you weird, too?
