i am weird

I have been making a list in my head of things about myself that I find strange.
Here it is:


  • I cannot merge into highway traffic wearing sunglasses or with the window up.
  • I seem to be incapable of closing a drawer. So much so that I took the cabinet doors off in the kitchen because I got sick of hearing my husband bitch about them being left open all the time.
  • I absolutely love the smells of gasoline and bleach.
  • I also love the smell of a man who has spent an entire summer day under the hood of a car.
  • Cuticles gross me out.
  • I can write backwards perfectly and with as much ease as writing normally.
  • When reading aloud, I have to read upside-down. Not so when reading silently.
  • I constantly count everything. Especially my steps.
  • I cannot forget phone numbers once I write them down.
  • I will almost always write them down backwards, but read them back correctly.
  • The older I get, the more I like pink.
  • I am really, really good at copying people's handwriting. Disturbingly so.
