1) When football is on TV on a Sunday afternoon and I'm not watching the game, the sound of it really, really bugs me.
2) I didn't start drinking coffee until I was 35 years old -- when we moved to Arkansas. I guess Arkansas just makes me sleepy or something. I always have coffee after breakfast -- never with it -- and always in the same "Princess" coffee mug my Baytown friend Paige gave me. Although I'm starting to shake things up a bit by occasionally using the Starbucks mug my Baytown friend Margaret gave me. And my coffee always has to have something yummy in it like International Delight Vanilla Caramel Brownie, not something lame and boring like cream and sugar.
3) I've put notes in my 3rd-grader's lunch since her first day of kindergarten and I'm always worried that if I were to forget one day, she would be sad. Even though she mentioned the other day that she would like me to stop writing the notes before she's in high school.
4) I live with an almost constant fear of being in a car accident. It could be because Chad's sister and my high school boyfriend were killed in car accidents. Whatever the case, the fear has worsened over the years.
5) When we're on a road trip and driving past a field full of cows, I can instantly spot the one that's pooping. Even out of 200 or so. Even weirder: Julia has inherited this ability.
6) When I see grocery carts on the side of the road that have rolled away from their respective stores and have no way of getting back, I feel a little sad for them.
7) When I'm in the car and anything by Chicago, Journey, ZZ Top or Huey Lewis comes on the radio, I change the station so fast that I'm probably going to sprain a finger one of these days.
8) When I'm pregnant, I have X-rated dreams that are also very funny but I wouldn't feel comfortable telling any of you about them.
