- I eat all "spoon" desserts with a plastic baby spoon. I bought a set of baby spoons right after Steamboat was born for, well Steamboat, but then I came to realize if you eat your dessert with a tiny spoon you get more bites and it lasts longer. I don't really care for the metal ones with the plastic coated tip, I like the all plastic multi-colored ones, and I never use one that "matches" my dessert. For example, I avoid yellow when I am eating banana cream pudding, and pink NEVER gets used with peppermint ice cream.
- I like popcorn and gummy bears. Mixed together preferably.
- I carry straws in my purse because I cannot drink anything with ice unless I use a straw. I have done this for so long, I don't even have the motor skills necessary to manage a drink with ice without sloshing it all over me. I buy straws in bulk at Sam's and this habit is so well known that when I was finishing up school and started interviewing, my sister made me a travel kit with tiny toiletries, and STRAWS.
- I will NOT watch a movie, even one I have seen 100 times if I don't see the opening credits. However, I will watch any episode of Top Chef, from any point, and as many times in a row as Bravo provides.
These are the few "quirks" that have surfaced as spots of annoyance in the last couple of days. I personally think they are endearing qualities of a smart, quirky lady. Mr. P seems to think I might have a screw loose.
After re-reading my list, it seems I might. might, I say, have a weird issue with FOOD. huh. what do you know.
So what makes you a weirdo?
