Quirky Tag

I've been tagged! And we all know I can't pass up a tag :) Here are my 6 unspectacular quirks:

1) I can't stand getting water on my face!! Even in the shower I avoid the water getting on my face when at all possible and I only barely tolerate it when it is unavoidable. I also hold my breath in the shower when the water gets anywhere near my nose. I know it is pretty unlikely that I will drown in the shower, but try telling my brain that. It won't believe you.

2) I have a difficult time remembering to lock doors. Car doors, house doors, you name it. My parents never locked our house doors growing up so I just never got into the habit. Anthony had to really work on getting me used to locking things, especially when I was alone in the house. I am much better at it now, but I still have to remind myself every time to make sure I locked everything.

3) I can't open bags or boxes neatly to save my life! They always end up ripped open or the bag opening goes all down the side of the bag. It cracks Anthony up every time he goes to get a snack or something because he can always tell who opened it. Sometimes he just starts laughing, finds me and shows it to me saying, "I wonder who opened this one?". I stick by my claim that I just happen to always get the boxes and bags that are difficult or have extra glue or something!

4) I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome which we won't go into details about (I know, gross!) but among other things it means that whenever I get excited or nervous about something I spend a good amount of time in the bathroom before or after. It has gotten to the point that after my third trip to the bathroom, Anthony will ask me what I am nervous about.

5) I make funny sighing noises in my sleep. I didn't know I did this until Ant told me, but apparently I make a high pitched sigh like when you are exhausted and plop down on the couch at the end of the day. Hopefully I don't do it too much, but I think just once or twice a night. At least it's better than snoring, right?

6) Whenever I wear socks, the lines have to be directly across my toes. My mom tells me that I used to be very difficult about his and would pitch a fit until my socks were on "correctly". I wouldn't say that I pitch a fit now :), but I am definitely uncomfortable until I can get somewhere and fix it.

So I saw that you were tagged, and I just had a feeling you would get me! I loved your answers though
..especially about the one about Anthony knowing when your nervous. So funny, but I'm sure not too fun for you! lol. This one might take me a bit! Stay posted okay!

I can't believe it about the sox! I was like that with my shoe laces when I was kid! My mother probably would have bought stock in velcro if it had been invented then!!! When I learned to tie my own shoes I could feel the tightness and make them even
myself. (And of course they still must be even.)
The tags are great, lets others in on your current feelings and idiosyceries. Did I mention spelling is one of mine!? Sharon
