The problem is that we really don't usually recognize our own pecuiliarities and weird habits. So I took a cue from Colombina, who elicited help from her husband. Here's what my husband had to say:
DH: Well, you think you're always right.
Me: It's not a peculiarity when it's true - I *am* always right.
No help. I asked a couple of friends. The one answer I got from DH and both friends was "the foot thing." So without further ado, I give you my list of 5 weird habits or peculiarities:
1. The Foot Thing. OK, I don't really like feet. I have come to terms with them (mostly mine) as I have gotten older, but until recently nobody was allowed to touch my feet. In college, I had to put socks on before anybody was allowed into my room, because I didn't want anybody to see my feet. They're normal feet - no abnormalities or anything...I just didn't think they needed to be out there in the public domain. Interestingly, and through no fault of my own, I am now the proud owner of an extremely large collection of foot and stocking fetish porn movies - but that's anbother story entirely. How's that for irony?
2. I Floss. Not just like dental hygiene, I floss my teeth several times per day and keep flossers in my purse for flossing emergencies.
3. I Love Fragrance.
The bulk (but not entirety) of my collection.
OK, that one was no surprise to most of you...I have, um, a little perfume habit. I'm not stinky, not trying to cover anything up, I just love and appreciate the art of fragrance. I also smell all food before I take the first bite, but that may be more of an animal instinct kinda thing.
4. I am a night person, and I despise mornings. My husband will get up early to finish something, after going to bed when he's tired. I will stay up until 4 am to get it done, because I am useless in the morning and if I have to get up early to finish it, it doesn't get finished.
5. Clothing Issues. I have lots of casual clothing and quite a bit of formal attire, but very little in between. So a nice evening out usually finds me either overdressed or underdressed. I recognize this as a problem but have yet to do anything about it.
So. There you have my five. I officially charge five bloggers to reveal 5 weird habits or peculiarities about themselves: PFG of Do Not Enter The Tea Room; Kyahgirl of Mother Hen's Place; Katiedid of Seldom Nice Nowadays; Lupa of no one knows why the wolf laughs and Bela of Slap of the Day (please don't slap me, Bela!) Enjoy!
