So I thought maybe today I should just share some things about me that I think are weird. On a scale of one to weird some people consider me super weird, but I think I’m just weird :p Alright, let’s go.
The weirdest thing about me is that I cannot tell my left from my right…literally. I was again reminded of this fact just this week when I told a class that words ending “ion” have their primary stress on the second syllable from the right. They stared at me in cofusion as I underlined. Turns out I meant left. *Sigh. I try to differentiate by pretend eating in my head. Even then…yeah, weird.
The second weirdest thing I can think of is that my hair has never grown up to 6 inches all my life. I’ve tried everything including feeding it weed. No way! I’ve totally given up and just let the hair do it’s own thing. When Indie Arie sang “I am not my hair”, I can very well relate. LOL. Thank God for weaves!
Another thing I consider weird is the fact that all my joints are darker than the rest of my body. My knuckles, my knees, my elbows… looks like I tried bleaching my skin and then stopped 😦 l remember when I was much younger I tried scraping my knee with a knife and ended up hurting myself. I have since accepted I can’t change this but it still feels pretty weird.
I don’t subscribe to religious celebrations and I don’t celebrate birthdays, neither do I wish people a happy birthday. I have made enemies on Twitter because I didn’t wish certain people “happy birthday”. A friend once said to me that he doesn’t care whether I celebrate or not but why can’t I just make someone happy on their day? Weird right? That’s it on the list 😐
That’s enough weird for one night I think. Wonder what I’ll post tomorrow.
Join me if you can 🙂
There are some Jews whom you put in charge of the province of Babylon – Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego – who are disobeying Your Majesty’s orders. They do not worship your god or bow down to the statue you set up. – Daniel 3:12 GNT
