At Brina‘s request, here are six odd things about me:
I’m not colorblind, but can’t pass colorblindness tests. You know those pictures made of circles in which you have to find the number? I always either don’t see a number or find a number that it says means I’m colorblind, usually corresponding with red-green deficiency. Obviously if I’m missing anything I don’t know it–that pesky “one set of experiences” thing and all–but I do see in color.
I like peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwiches. Actually I like any two of peanut butter, mayonnaise, and banana, or all three. The peanut butter has to be creamy. I also like Worcestershire sauce with grilled cheese sandwiches, sport pepper vinegar (like what goes on turnip greens) on spaghetti, black pepper on cantaloupe, and barbecue sauce in macaroni & cheese.
I don’t like having my toes spread apart. The big toe separated from the rest, like what happens when you wear flip-flops, is fine. But I can’t stand to have my little toes spread apart. It feels very wrong. I keep them clean, of course, but I have to grit my teeth when I do it.
I didn’t get a cavity until I was 28 years old. For years I had called Lea, who has several fillings, after leaving the dentist and told her I had a cavity. And for years she didn’t believe me. So naturally she didn’t believe me when I called her and I really did have a cavity.
I can put my entire fist in my mouth. I can’t remember quite when I learned this, but I’m certain there was alcohol present.
I’ve been to paradise, but I’ve never been to me. Actually, I have. It’s a pretty nice place to be most of the time.
