Going into 2021 I thought I’d jot down 21 odd things about me. Hoping to have people play along and send in 21 odd things about themselves.
1 – I like peanuts but not peanut butter.
2 – I eat cherry tomatoes but not tomato slices unless they are fried and green.
3 – I like chunk white tuna from a pouch but every other kind of tuna is gross to me.
4 – I like roller coasters that are short and winding but not the ones that have a steep drop that leave my tummy in an uproar.
5 – I like to drink from a plastic straw but hate to use a paper straw.
6 – My workout socks matter. They have to be just the right fit, matched and no holes.
7 – I like to put chalk on my hands at the gym and put the hand prints on the nearest black pants that somebody is wearing.
8 – I also like to use chalk when doing a lot of burpees to decorate the floor and show that I did a lot when I’m done. Very gratifying.
9 – I like to meet new people and ask questions to learn about them but it could be unnerving to others.
10 – I am always planning my next tattoo.
11 – When I order my coffee at a restaurant for breakfast I only order 1/2 cup. The other half is normally for creamer!
12 – When I order an omelette I ask for a sprinkle of shredded cheese. I don’t like a big blob.
13 – I am somebody’s safe word.
14 – I post a lot of pictures online or more so than many my age or so my kids say.
15 – I like to wear different shoes for different kinds of workouts.
16 – I change outfits more than once at a competition.
17 – I order my nuggets extra crispy at Chick-Fil-A. Some people don’t even know it’s an option.
18 – I like thin chicken breasts not plump chicken breasts.
19 – I like soft cooked carrots but not hard carrots.
20 – I use many notebooks for many different tasks and ideas.
21 – I like to drink Shirley Temples and I like extra cherries.
It took a minute to think of 21 and I might have asked a few close friends for help. It was fun to think about.
This was a good way to end 2020 and all its weirdness. We all have our own weirdness about us. Now go make your list. Be bold and share it.
