1- I can NOT STAND hearing people eat and drink. It is a serious problem that drives me insane. At this exact moment, Mike is in the kitchen eating pineapple and I. can’t. handle. it. for. one. more. second.
2- I have to sleep with my feet propped up on pillows. When I’m traveling and the hotel doesn’t have enough pillows for me, I have to request more or I will not be able to sleep.
3- I hate when cupboards are left open. First of all, how hard is it to shut the cupboard when you get a snack or a cup out of it? Well, apparently for every member in my family it is like hiking Mount Everest because they always leave them open. I can’t focus on anything else until the cupboard is shut.
4- I’m really dang good at Scrabble. Mike and I play it at night when the kids go to bed, and every night we wager that the winner gets a massage. After I ALWAYS win the first round, Mike says best two out of three. And then, I win again. It’s great for me because I get a lot of massages 🙂
5- I get really bad allergies and make this incredibly annoying scratchy noise with my throat. My family thinks I’m dying most of the time.
6- When I make up my mind, it’s very strong and the next steps that I need to take to get it done happen very fast. Usually my husband wonders where in the world I got the idea from, but once I KNOW I’m supposed to do something, I’m like a whirlwind and there’s no turning back for me. Big decisions come very fast for me and I have a pretty strong “intuition”.
7- Meat makes me gag, but I’m not vegetarian.
8- I pretty much always beat any boy at HORSE in basketball. I don’t play basketball, and I never practice, but ever since I was in middle school I have one heck of a way of winning that game. Ha.
9- I’m extremely sensitive to a lot of foods and have a really bad stomach.
10- I get obsessed with cracking my knuckles, and even crack them over my cell phone. I hold it in the palm of my hand and wrap my fingers around it and then press them down. I can’t explain it, but it’s so weird.
What are your weird quirks? I have plenty more… but we’ll stop there for now…
