And even more good news- my sissy did a post earlier this week that she is graciously allowing me to rip off from her, so that means that for the second post in a row, someone else is providing me with a topic so I don't have to come up with one on my own. So Camille and Allison, thank you for
enabling my laziness inspiring me.
So without further delay, I give you my list of "Things." Oh, and in case you didn't already think I was a moocher, then you should know that I wasn't even motivated enough to come up with my own list... Allison did it for me. Isn't she the greatest?
Things that make me go "hmm":
Why people pluralize (and make possessive) the names of businesses... for example: calling it "Barnes & Nobles" or referring to Magnolia Cafe as "Magnolia's"
OH, and fantasy sports. But really, those make me go "ugh." :)
Things that irritate me the most during my commute home from work:
Where do I even begin? Other passengers, stoplights, trains, and annoying DJ's on the radio. So basically everything? :)
Things that I get asked often about being a twin:
"What's it like to be a twin?" I really don't know how to respond to this one, because if you'll think about it for a moment, I have no idea what it's like not to be a twin.
Things I never hear my husband say:
"I'm not hungry."
"Why would I want to watch the Aggie/Texans/Astros/Rockets/any-sports-team-even-if-it's-completely-irrelevant-to-him when Teen Mom is on tv?!"
"No, I don't think I've seen that youtube video before."
Things I will not do on a weeknight:
Stay up past 10 pm. Generally speaking, I don't like committing to any activity at all on weeknights because of the likelihood that I'll have to stay up after my bedtime. Sometimes (ie: if Mexican food is involved), I can be coerced into doing so, but generally I regret it the next morning.
Things I shouldn't say to a cop who is bald when he is getting after me and my friends who are illegally parked by a cliff:
Not that she was referencing an actual event here or anything when she came up with this one, but theoretically, if something like this did happen (while you were in high school, for example), I think it would be unwise to point out his baldness and ask him if you could touch his head.
Things I like to slam into while running:
Once again, not that this has ever happened to me, but if I had to pick something to slam into while running, it would be a fire hydrant. While running "the mile" around the middle school. In 6th grade. In front of a classroom full of cute boys.
Things that will never be found on my plate:
FISH or anything that ever lived in the ocean/lake/river/swamp
Things that make me want to punch someone in the face:
Ok yes, perhaps Allison was a little harsh in including this topic. But if I have to answer, then I'm going to go with making excuses. I know everyone says this, but I really and truly cannot stand it when people make excuses! My least favorite? "I didn't have time." Oh, that's funny, because last time I checked, you had 24 hours in your day just like the rest of us.
Oops, did that sound hostile?
Things that are stupid:
My ovaries. Oh, and my uterus.
