7 Odd Things About Me...

In response to a recent TAG:

I'll preface this by saying that Nick tells me all the time how weird I am so he should be writing this post for me but I'll try to narrow this down. And what does "odd" mean anyway... peculiar or out of the ordinary?

(In no particular order)

1. I am carrying twins!
2. I love hot foods like jalepenos, banana peppers, zesty spices, etc.
3. I am the biggest cry baby you will ever meet. Oprah, Dr. Phil, commercials, books, music videos, all make me cry!
4. Being a passenger in a car when ANYONE else is driving makes me extremely uncomfortable - sweaty palms, heightened sensations, and sometimes even upset stomach.
5. I am extremely afraid of heights. I haven't always been this way. When I was little I loved to climb trees and brick walls and stuff but one day something just snapped and heights became my biggest fear! Three years ago when I was on a Mission Trip with FUMC I was asked to help on the roof of the church and I don't know what I was thinking when I climbed up but when it was time to climb back down I freaked out and started crying and couldn't do it. I was so petrified that the Mission Trip leader called Nick on his cell phone and threw the phone up to me for Nick to calm me down. I asked like 5 guys to come and hold the bottom of the ladder and 2 or three more to hold the top so I could climb down. I did NOT go back up.
6. I have a very keen sense of smell.
7. I truly never forget a face. Two examples: I can be watching a movie and place almost any actor from where I have seen them even if they were 12 in the movie 15 years ago. My junior year at Bama I was sitting in a History class of about 200 students and kept noticing this guy that sat a few rows ahead of me. I couldn't stop looking at him because I recognized him from somewhere. I guessed that he was in my preschool class at Green Gate by Huntingdon College when I was 2 years old. I asked him and he said that he lived in Montgomery for like 2 years when he was young but that his family moved away and that he doesn't remember anything about it. Sure enough, the next time I went home I dug through old photos and found my preschool class picture and there he was!

LJM - start a blog!!! it doesn't have to sound smart, funny, or even interesting... Just Do It!
