I'm kinda weird.
And because I'm kinda weird I have a problem.
I'll let you in on the weirdness first, and then the problemo.
First things first.
I despise odd numbers.
I don't know why, nor where it came from...
I don't even remember when it started.
I can, however, give you a really good example.
It's something my family makes fun of me for all the time.
Are you ready?
I can't eat things in odd numbers.
If I grab a handful of M&Ms, skittles, whatever
I have to have an even number.
Whenever I eat something that I don't have a CHOICE of getting an even number...like fruit snacks...I'll either throw the extra on away or give it to someone else.
Obviously there are things that can't be controlled with that.
Like big meals.
I can not eat 2 enchiladas
I think my stomach would burst at the seams.
But don't you worry my blogging friends!!
I have a way around this one!!
I take the first bite of whatever I'm eating
And start chewing on the left hand side of my mouth.
The next bite goes on the right.
Then the left.
Then the right.
You get the picture.
That way I can make sure that I take an even amount of bites
Because I can always manage to get two more bites of something.
The only odd number I can remotely be okay with is 5.
Don't ask me why, because I don't know.
But I am okay with the number 5.
That's probably the best example of me not liking odd numbers I can come up with.
So, that being said...
Can you understand why it is now DRIVING ME CRAZY
Why I have 29 followers? Not 28, not 30...
Not that I'm not grateful for all of my followers...
Cause I am and I love you all so much!!
But that 29 is killing me.
It's like a big zit right on your nose or the edge of your lip that's just begging to be popped...
But it's not quite ready yet.
But it hurts!!
And it's mean and ugly.
And it distorts your whole entire face.
And you're just itching to get rid of it.
But you can't because you know that as soon as you try it'll just make it worse.
Do you think you could help me out here?
If there are any of you that read my blog but that don't follow...
Could you please click the follow button?
Or could one of you, my lovely followers/readers, go find a random stranger off of the street and have them follow it?
I sense the desperatness coming out in me....
If you could help me out, that would be great!!
I had a Connie flash back the other day.
I've been skipping the Spanish music on my iPod...
You know, just in case.
And the other day I heard the first few words of a song before I could skip it...
And I was battling it the rest of the day.
Speaking of songs, today at work I was outside watering the flowers (perennials if you're going to be specific...)
Minding my own business, listening to my iPod on shuffle
(Which can mean anything from Country to Disney to Josh Groban to Yellowcard to Dean Martin...I have a wide variety and I love it)
And the song that came on was from The Bodyguard soundtrack, Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You"
And after the first two lines:
"If I should stay, I will only be in your way.
So I'll go, but I know, I'll think of you every step of the way..."
And I just started crying.
I normally sing a long to my music
I couldn't even get the words out I was crying so much.
Now this is a sad song, yes...but it made me wonder what about the lyrics had caused me to cry so much.
I'll have to think about that one.
After it was over I figured it'd play something happy or upbeat or loud...
The next song was by Reba McEntire (for those of you who don't like country, I'm sorry)
It's a new one of hers
It's called "Over You"
It's about a woman who's not over a previous love (obviously...)
And that got me to crying even more!!
See, the other thing about me is once I get thinking about something, I have a hard time stopping thinking about it until I've carried through all possible scenarios and seen all the different endings things could have.
And I had been thinking about Boyfriend that morning...
So yeah, when that song came out my head automatically played out us breaking up and how I would feel and how sad that would make me...
And I couldn't let it go till the song had ended and I had reminded myself that life was good...
We hadn't broken up...
And that wasn't going to happen...
*sigh* It was a rough morning.
So now you've learned two new things about me.
Did they scare you off?
I sure hope not...
Have a good night blogging land!!
