Fun Monday has rolled around again, and Lisa has emerged from her Chaos to host this week! What Lisa wants to know is this:
A quirk is defined as a peculiarity of action, behavior, or personality; mannerism. We are all unique individuals, having quirks that help make us who we are. I would like to know what your quirks are. Confess to one, confess to ten, you decide. Just come back Monday ready to spill the beans, the rest of the world may look at you like you are from Mars, but you‘re among friends here. We won’t laugh, in fact that eccentricity just may endear you to us more.
Yes. I signed up, with a slightly snarky comment on Lisa's blog:
Me? Quirks? I don't think so... Guess I'll have to ask around. Count me in and I'll tell you what OTHER people think my quirks are!
So this morning, Darling Man, ZBoy and I were driving over to the mall for the 10am showing of Wall E, and I asked DM, "Do I have any quirks?"
After he stopped laughing, he asked, "Good or bad?"
"Either. Both. What do YOU think my quirks are?"
He pondered for a moment and shook his head. "I'm not fallin' for that. You have no quirks that I am aware of..."
Fat lot of help he was.
So now I must ruminate on what my quirks might be.
My husband has stated (in the past) that I could speak volumes with a sigh. According to him, they are usually exasperated or long-suffering sighs. It usually means he's done something wrong (he thinks). My take on it is that I need a second to regroup after seeing some "infraction" (towels on the floor, coffee spilled on the carpet, clothes piled on the ladder in the garage) so that I don't just explode and can summon a more reasonable reaction. Yes, I'm a neat freak. I am also TOTALLY thwarted in my environment because I share it with a man, a boy, a dog, and four cats. The fish doesn't do anything to mess up the house, but the cats regularly shed or throw up and the dog leaves very dirty, half-chewed rawhides around. The boy and the Man are somewhat self-explanatory as they are humans. I, of course, never make or leave a mess (and if you believe that...).
So my biggest quirk is my sense of organization, which is absolutely entrenched in my brain, but shows up absolutely nowhere in my own physical world.
And honestly? That's the only one I can think of at the moment. Probably because I am in recovery and unable to do much more than fold laundry at the moment. It is INTENSELY frustrating to me.
Now go see what quirks other folks own up to - visit Lisa's Chaos!!!
