weirdo



1- I get dizzy enough to fall over whenever I lift my right arm above my head.
2- I get dizzy enough to fall over if I bend my head down below my waist.
3-Thinking too hard about infinity can send me straight into an anxiety attack.
4-The feel of a popsicle stick is like fingernails on a chalk board to me, it freaks me out to see anyone chewing on one.
5-I went for a chest xray for bronchitis 2 years ago and found out that I have a broken back and am 1 1/2 inches shorter now. I have no clue how or when it happened.
6-I can never pay attention to the weather part of the news. I zone out every time and have to rewind with Tivo.
7-Doors or cabinets that are left ajar make me batty.
8-I can't stand lights on during the day, it makes me feel queazy if the sun is out.
9-I am allergic to shrimp shells but not shrimp. If I get pricked by a shell my hand swells to twice it's size.
10-I will hold pee for a very, very, very long time in order to avoid a public bathroom.
11-I can remember how people take their coffee from 20 years ago. If I ever bought you a cup of coffee, it's a good guess that I will never forget how you take it. I also remember way too many ancient phone numbers and zip codes.
I'm sure there's a lot more, but this is enough for now.
I hereby tag whomever is reading this!

Wow, Carol, reading this post made me laugh out loud - so many of your "weird" quirks are my weird quirks, too! :)

Definitely #3 (thinking about eternity when I was a kid gave me panic attacks), #4, #8, and #10! :)

Ha! Your weird things are heaps funnier than other peoples - and yet I can't help thinking 'poor you' if they're all true. It's also funny how you kept going way past 6 where other people stop.
Thanks for sharing! (I'm too chicken)

Carol said...

Flor, I am not a bit surprised!

Sally, it's all true! Funny but true.
C.mon, don't be chicken, tell us yours.

yay sammy!

Sally said...

hmmm. Maybe. I'm not convinced. One for here and now may be...
umm...
I HATE going to the hairdresser.It doesn't sound like much, but I end up coming home, re-washing and styling my hair and crying a lot because it's never what I asked for (not always the same hairstylist of course).
There. Happy?

Carol said...

I'll get a note from my husband to confirm, it's all true!!
Sally- you are seriously holding out on us here.

Cause who knows!!!! whatever! and tell sally that I cry at the hairdressers too!

oh carol , you being weird was an amusing read, will think over my weirdnesses too and try to name them in English, that will need a little more time:-)

Carol said...

Thanks for embracing my "weirdness". There's plenty more that I will save for another time.
Kim- my doctor calls me his enigma, I can do a whole page of medical weirdness!
