There is this girl who doesn’t pluck her eyebrows or shave on a daily basis. She waits until things like this are urgent. Like you can’t possibly go out in public one more day in this condition — urgent.
And she doesn’t like to cook. She wishes her people liked soup from a can and cereal from a box everyday. Every now and then she gets her fancy on with a grilled cheese sandwich or green beans cooked in chicken broth. But for the most part she gets take-out.
The smell of mint gives her a headache but the smell of a fresh cut lawn makes her heart sing.
She skips pages when she reads children’s books and starts non-fiction books in the middle.
She loves to practice her dance moves in the kitchen when her kids have friends over. Yes, they roll their eyes but in their hearts she knows they are giving her a standing ovation. For sure.
Hand her a deck of cards and she’ll cut it with one hand. But ask her to raise her left hand and she’ll still pause for a second trying to figure out which one that is.
Maybe you have some funny quirks. Oh do tell in the comments below. Seriously, I must know I’m not alone.
And while you think up which quirks to share, let me slip you one more little tidbit. So this girl with a list of quirks a mile long is about to release this book. Maybe she’s mentioned it a time or two hundred. Anyhow, Unglued comes out next week and, well…that makes this girl want to hide in a bathroom stall and wish she’d plucked those eyebrows before going out in public.
And there may or may not be some book signings coming up.
Book signings are great when there are actual people that come.
But book signings with no people are hands down the most awkward situation in the entire world-I kid you not.
If you happen to be going to the BlogHer Conference in New York this Thursday, I’ll be in booth 316 from 6-8 pm. I’d love to see you. And if you can’t come, you can follow all my awkwardness on twitter @LysaTerKeurst.
I’ll also be at my husband’s Chick-fil-A Arboretum in Charlotte next Tuesday, August 7th from 6-8 pm. Rumor has it he might be giving out some free coupons if you happen to be in the mood to eat chicken for dinner that night.
Which works really well for this girl that doesn’t like to cook. Or shave. But I will on these days. Just so you know.
