The Quirks of Corey

The ever fabulous Jeanette tagged me with the "6 quirks" meme, and since I have a ton of photos to edit....and this will be a quick little exercise, I figured, "why not?"

I've addresses several of my "issues" before here. So it MAY be a bit of a challenge to think of 6 more things that make me weird.

1. Since having Sugar Bear, I have developed a strong dislike for crowds. I am seriously annoying with my "let's not go on a weekend, there will be too many people!" comments. I will bend my literally inflexible self out of shape to figure out what we can do that will NOT include other people. I just get all antsy and weird thinking about taking Sugar Bear somewhere and having to deal with strangers.

2. The only condiment I like is Ketchup. I don't like Mayo, Miracle Whip, salad dressings of nearly any sort, mustard, sour cream ,and anything hot. I have forced myself to find a few salad dressings I can put up with though. Salads sort of just fall apart without dressing. I do eat my sandwiches pain, however. DRY!

3. I drink water 98% of the time. The other 2 % would be milk or some juice. Nothing else.

4. No matter the temperature I need at least 3 blankets covering me while I sleep. Every night, I still sleep with an afghan my Great Grandmother made me in 1984. It has held up amazingly. Not a single hole. WOW!

5. When I am reading the blogs in my reader I always start at the top work myself about a quarter of the way down, then go to the bottom and work my way about a quarter of the way up...then I jump around. I have no idea why I do this...but I do it EVERY time!

6. Okay...here is a Doozy! I can NOT believe I am going to share this one.......I must be nuts!!!! whew....deep breaths....deep breaths.....ready? By smell, I can identify who in the house just farted! Yup...it is a skill....a skill my husband finds rather disgusting and annoying. NO blaming the dog...you can't fool me.....I know who just tooted. I am certain I could identify Sugar's, Hubby's and the dog's with at least 99% accuracy. I'm cool like that. Bet you wish you were me, huh?

Okay....so if any of you are still here....and not pointing and laughing, go ahead and give this meme a try if the mood strikes you. I'll be hiding in the corner, not wondering, "who just farted?".......cause I'll already know!

Your list of "talents" just keeps growing and growing! :)

Corey, you're hilarious!!!! I can't believe that last one! :-D

AnnD said...

My hubby can identify farts too! I also have a certain blog order too! You are always my first to view each day!

Megan (FriedOkra) said...

Is #1 really quirky? I just thought it was smart! :) With a nose like yours, you don't NEED to be in a crowd, babe! Hee hee.

Jennifer Powell said...

Corey,
#6 shows that you really need to get out more. :) -Heather

Kimberly said...

Bwahahah! I eat everything plain too! Heck, I don't even like ketchup. Same with the water drinking one. Can't sleep without a blanket no matter how hot it is. And I can tell who farted as well! Weird!

Jenty said...

LOL, that last one is DEFINITELY quirky :)
I really do understand the condiment thing, I hardly use them too.

JC said...

:-D~

tommie said...

#6 is hilarious! My French bulldog has toots like no other....but that is as far as my 'toot skills' go.

holly said...

MamaGeek said...

First off, I love that WW shot! Coolness!

And I so get your process of reading blogs - I do the SAME THING! And I must be covered too - why is that?

Michelle said...

I'm with you on #3- I drink OJ for breakfast and then the rest of the day it's water!

The last one cracked me up! Last night Joe was changing Lucas and said "boy you stink!" and I asked "how do you know it was him and not Kayla?" (because I didn't hear any noise and Lucas doesn't usually have silent ones LOL) and Joe said, "because it smells like his!" LOL I guess breastfed babies do have a certain smell :)

Christina said...

Wow, Corey, you have your very own super hero! You're a super sniffer! What a talent. You do have that on your resume, right!?

#3 is me all the way. I almost never drink anything but water. And my water must be ICE cold.

I just got tagged for one of these a couple days ago...I need to get mine written. (and the water one just might be on the list!)

Laura said...

Ok, I knew a lot of those...but I did not know the last one! LOL That is an interesting skill, there...

Secret Agent Mama said...

Quirk #2 kills me b/c I'm a CONDIMENT FREAK!!

I still love ya bunches, Corey. LOL

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

LOL! I'm the same way in my blog reader too though - I work down until I can't stand to any longer, then work up - then eventually hit the middle. Those poor middle blogs... :)

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee, I love your quirks, but number 6 is not just a quirk, it's a gift. 8)
