Well, I have a lot to confess so find a comfortable seat. First, I rather delight in being a little eccentric. One of my favorite greeting cards, proclaimed on the front that I was like apple pie; the inside punchline noted that I was a little flaky on the outside but sweet on the inside. Another favorite memory is after a friend returned from the Big Easy with presents. He commented that he was looking for a gift for someone who is a nice person but a little weird. The gift was these whimsical crawdad earrings.
Another eccentricity is that I am a transvestite in that I wear clothes designed for the opposite sex. There are two reasons for this predilection. I do not like to shop, and I am frugal. (Of course, you might think frugality and disdain for shopping to be quirky as well.) My transvestism developed when my sons were teens and about my size. I have inherited numerous shirts, jeans, and even my oldest son's eighth grade deck shoes. At this time, my frugal self discovered that I could wear some of their clothes. In this picture, I am wearing my son's suit in a parody of the The Blues Brothers with Daddy D in our Sunday school class.
Additionally, I am directionally challenged. If I manage to get from point A to point B, I have a very difficult time retracing my steps. My directional dyslexia is so severe that I will print out Map Quest directions to places that I have visited a number of times and for locations a few miles from home. Oh yes, hopefully I will not get lost on my trip and need gas as I do not pump gas. My kind husband does this for me.
This may be enough to reveal about oneself's in a day. To learn about other visit the lovely Lisa, for this Quirky Fun Monday list of participants. I am looking forward to learning more about others. Aren't you?
