Rachel tagged me last week and I've been thinking about this over the weekend. The subject is 6 Unspectacular Quirks About Me. I have plenty of quirks so it's been hard narrowing them down. Unspectacular? I wouldn't use that word. I would say I have annoying, obsessive, with a sprinkling of irrational quirks. Here are some that may or may not be a surprise....depends on how well you know me.

1. I'm left handed. BUT the only thing I do left handed is eat and write. All sport, scissor, & watch wearing activities are right handed.
2. I have a all encompassing fear of heights. I can do 2 or 3 rungs up a ladder and then paralyzing fear sets in.
3. I love my calling. I love teaching ss to the 17 years olds in our ward. Each of them contributes and they listen so well. Could it be the treat bribery? No, it's my engaging method of teaching......not! It's a little Molly Mormon to love your calling, right?
4. Unlike Rachel, I don't feel the laundry experience is complete unless a load of laundry sits in the dryer for at least 24 hours. It's like a curing process. In fact if anyone brings me freshly dried laundry I order them to go put it back in the dryer for a few hours.
5. I love Egg Beaters. Bruce thinks they smell like...oh...I forget....something like smelly feet but I still love them.
6. I eat oatmeal for breakfast nearly every day. Not the good kind with lots of brown sugar. It's the high fiber, high protein, low sugar, low fat, low taste kind. I'm a tad obsessed with it.

Not sure of all of those qualify as quirks or not. Questionable behavior? Yes.

I like 'em!

And I think the 17 year olds would be really fun to teach. That is such an interesting time of life. So much they know, so much yet to learn and experience, so much optimism...kinda cool! And you have the greatest personality. You are a perfect fit!

And the laundry could stay in the long as it doesn't come out and spend any time unfolded. Hee hee. ;)

So with you on the laundry!

I'm with you on the laundry too.
But not the oatmeal.

Is 4 out of 6 good? I think I knew all but the heights and laundry thing. :) I'm back from my trip - let's get together soon!
