I went back to read that post the other day, and realized that the things I listed there were really only just scratching the surface. So I thought I'd do part 2 of that post and give you another little peek into who I am. Quirks and all. And hopefully you still wanna be friends afterward ;-)
I use chapstick all of the time.
Okay so this doesn't sound weird when you say it. But it's actually a compulsion. I cannot stand it when my lips get dry. I will lick and bite at them constantly unless there I have something on them (chapstick, lipgloss... something). I will literally stress out if I don't have chapstick with me. Like, its bad guys. I will have a hard time focusing on anything until I get chapstick. lol. Okay now that I'm admitting this, I feel like a weirdo.
I used to love to swim in the ocean and now I don't.
Growing up, I used to LOVE the ocean. I'd sail out on a boat in the middle of nowhere and float above the deep blue sea with my snorkel and love every minute of it. Now?? I'm scared to death of the ocean. It's weird because it seems a little backwards, right? Like, I should get less scared of something as I get older... but nope. I don't know what the heck is down there so I'm not goin' in. Hopefully I can overcome this as my kids get older, because I want to be able to experience those things with them.
I have to sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door.
I've always been like this, since I can remember. But I absolutely have to sleep on the side of the bed that's closest to the door. I really can't put a real reason behind it, I just get extremely uncomfortable if there's a wall, or even a window on the side of me. Maybe I just want to be able to make a quick getaway if I need to?? lol
I'm paranoid about being late.
I start to panic when I think we're running behind schedule (even if we aren't), and I generally show up at least 15 minutes early everywhere we go. I mean really, you'd think I'd be used to, and just accept that it's impossible to always be on time when you've got small kids in tow, but I will literally drive myself delirious trying to get somewhere not only on time, but early. I wish I could say it's a good thing, but it's actually not. It just stresses me out. lol
I binge eat orange tic-tacs.
Okay maybe only my Husband knows about this. But I mean, let's just tell it like it is. Orange tic-tacs are not breath mints, they are candy. Candy candy candy. And here's the super embarrassing thing, and don't judge me. I have at least 1-2 boxes of orange tic-tacs in my purse at all times, and sometimes some in my cupboards as well. I'll eat a box every night for dessert. So weird, I know. You guys, I have a problem, I know. It's almost disgusting. Is there a support group for this kind of tic-tac binge eating?!
Tell me, what are some of your random and weird quirks!?
