THE RULES: Each player of this game writes a blog post on the subject of "6 Weird Things About Me", then tags 6 others to play the game. Taggees need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things. All who play must state the rules clearly.
1. I am pigeon-toed.
2. I hold my pen funny. My exasperated father tried everything he could to make me change, but this is the only way that ever felt natural to me. I've tried to change. I don't change. The way I write makes it tricky to use certain fountain pens, which is a bummer, 'cause I love them and have a nice collection. Also, ever since I can remember, random people, while watching me write with my right hand, have made this odd statement: "I didn't know you were left-handed."
3. I like goat milk.
4. My hair has little crop circles here and there. They have a name: Alopoecia Areata. This started happening to me after major surgery a few years ago. I get bunches of shots in my head to help with this.
5. I have two-toned teeth due to inept dentistry. It's a long story. I don't want to become one of those Utah überweis teeth people, but if I ever want my chomps to match I guess I'll have to. Not that there's anything wrong with überweis teeth in Utah or anywhere—they make for very clean, pretty smiles—I've just never been a real grin-flasher.
6. I am safely keeping some secrets for a friend that are weirder than just about anything I can imagine. Don't worry; they don't involve national security or potential criminal justice.
I hereby tag every everlovin' soul of you who had enough time to waste today to actually read this. If you don't have a blog, feel free to drop off your weirds in the comments section below.
