My Idiosyncrasies

I had to laugh at some of Send Chocolate's idiosyncrasies when she posted them, but then when I saw that she wanted me to post some of mine I stopped laughing...quick. Of course I had to take the challenge though so here it is. Just some of my weirdness put forth for the world to know or at least the ten people who read this!!

  1. I refuse to allow my kids to wear clothes with stains. All stained clothes. In the trash.
  2. I'm a shoe addict. I could sit and just look at people's shoes for a long period of time and be perfectly content.
  3. I refuse to leave my house without a shower first. Not even to run to the store or drop something off. I apologize now to my kids if they ever need to go to the ER before shower time. They will just have to wait.
  4. When eating cake, I always eat the frosting first. I am proud to say that Zoe does the same!
  5. I will only read one book at a time. Although I have 10 books on my nightstand I will not start one without finishing the other.
  6. I buy the trashy magazines to stay up to date on celebrity life, but more often than not I only look at the pictures.
  7. I hate the feel of cotton balls and will do everything I can not to touch them. The moment I do I get a chill and the hair on my arms stands straight up.
  8. When eating pizza, I take off all the toppings and may even wipe off the sauce. Can you tell the crust is my favorite part?
  9. At school I only write in colored pens and NEVER red. I prefer pinks, purples, greens, and oranges.
  10. I also write with markers. I can't get enough of the smell of Sharpies. Yes, I know that smelling them is bad for you and I do limit how much I use them.

What are some of your idiosyncrasies? I would love to hear them if you are brave enough to share!! Leave me a comment telling me you played along so I can come see.


  1. I never use red pens, either! I like all the different colored gel pens.

  2. I'm right there with you on the book thing. I can never juggle 2 books at a time. I have to finish one before starting another.

  3. That was enjoyable! I like knowing strange things about other people.

    Why, I can't think of a single strange thing about myself. (total sarcasm) :)

  4. I'm totally with you on numbers 1 and 5! LOL Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. I had to laugh at your shower comment! I'm the same way! When I went into labor with Ethan in the middle of the night, I insisted that I jump in the shower, wash my hair and try to dry and style it. Needless to say, the dry and style part just didn't happen :) but at least I didn't smell like I had been in bed! Oh, I hate red pens too! Is it weird that I buy things in 2s??

  6. I have same thing about my kids wearing stained clothes, EXCEPT,I don't throw them away, I throw back in the wash, and then stain treat, rewash, stain treat, rewash, think I should save them for muddy play, put them in the bottom of their drawer where they stay until one day, alas they go to the good will.

    I think your method is probably better:)

  7. Those are great! My biggest idiosyncrasy is when I am eating cereal. I absolutely CANNOT have it soggy at all. It was so bad a few years ago, I had to add a TBSP of milk at a time, eat it, and then put some more.

    I went to cereal therapy and now can pour a cup of milk in at a time but have to eat it quickly. ;-)

  8. These were fun to read Mel, hee hee :) Thanks for sharing! :)


Go ahead...tell me like it is!
