I've been tagged by Missy and Virginia to tell you six quirky things about me. Hmmm... I'm neurotic and must explain my neuroticness in all my posts, so I've decided to change the tag a bit and tell you six things I wish I were or had or desired.
I wish I were a natural skinny person instead of a thinnish person with a fat girl screaming to get out. "LET ME OUT! I WANT MORE ICE CREAM. EAT MORE BREAD. NOBODY CARES IF YOU DRINK CHOCOLATE SYRUP OUT OF THE BOTTLE. LET'S EAT COOKIE DOUGH." The skinny girl would say things like, "Oh, I'm full. I couldn't have another bite." or... "Oh, Thank you for your sweet compliment, I've always just had a really fast metabolism."
I wish my van didn't smell a little bit like throw-up. I also wish I weren't used to the smell and didn't notice people cringing and rolling down the window when they got in my car.
I wish I weren't so obsessive about stuff. Last night, on my run, I sang the Oompa Loompa song from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for a solid hour. And only a little bit of it, "Oompa, Loompa doopidee do, I've got another puzzle for you." That's it. That's all I could remember. So I kept singing it over and over. And I'm reading Anne of Green Gables again. I love it. It's my "go-to".
I wish I desired to learn as much as Quinn does. He's so motivated. I'm so... not.
I wish my hair weren't going gray. And not just gray-straight-hair-gray, but gray-kinky, wild-looking, witch-hair-gray. I've always pictured myself looking a little bit like Witch Hazel from Bugs Bunny with her hair all sticking out and the hairpins flying out of her hair everytime she jumped up. Except that she has black hair in this picture. I love her. If I ever look like that, then, PLEASE tell me that I'll have the laugh that goes with it. And a large, pointy, black hat. Just to scare people. I'm sure Quinn will be so pleased.
I wish I had cowboy boots. I want to wear them tomorrow.
