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.Ahem, I admit to nothing.
Because I am SURE that most of you suffer from some of my maladies:
1. The toothpaste tube: Please squeeze ONLY from the bottom. If you squeeze in the middle, I might have to divorce you. In fact, a middle-squozen toothpaste tube was ALMOST a deal-breaker for Wonderhubby and me back when we were first sharing bathroom equipment. Fortunately he is very adaptable, and my weirdness about the tube didn't phaze him all that much.
2. My eggs: I like my eggs fried, rather than scrambled. If they must be scrambled, though, they need to be scrambled DRY and not still runny. This also relates to my fried eggs. I order my eggs over hard -- kill them dead and do not let them run away. If the yolk is not completely done (a light yellow -- no orange, no dark yellow, no two-toned), I will send it back to be cooked a little longer.
And do not come near me with sunny-side-up, over easy or even over medium. If that egg yolk runs, I will gag. My children enjoy making me ill by ordering over-easy eggs with toast and sopping the yolk up with the bread. *Retch*
3. Wooden stirrers: I do NOT like wooden coffee stick stirrer thingies. I can taste the difference in my coffee if you so much as breathe the words "wooden stick" in my general direction. I would rather stir the coffee with my finger ... or NOT STIR IT AT ALL. Period.
4. My paycheck and the bank deposit: The tellers at my bank all know me now. When I come in with my paycheck (and no, I do NOT do direct deposit -- I like to feel the check and resulting moneys in my hand!), I make a general deposit into my checking account and take cash back for "house money." My deposit is ALWAYS an even dollar amount. I will take the change as "cash back." At first, they all asked me: "Don't you want to deposit the change?" Answer: No, thank you. Now they all know.
Before you climb all over me for being weird about this, let me assure you there is some method to my madness. First of all, I like working with even dollar amounts. My deposit, for example, would be $10. Easier math than $10.43.
Plus, do not forget that I am the coin queen. Go here to see why collecting change would be important to me.
I think four quirks is enough for today. Wonderhubby had a laundry list of things he wanted to add to my list. I was not amused and told him to write his OWN Fun Monday post.
Meanwhile, I'm going to check out everyone else's quirkiness.
