6 weird things meme
so this meme has been floating around a bit. i usually hate being tagged for these but i saw it first over at omar's and kind of liked it. and kind of wanted to do it, despite the fact i wasn't tagged. or maybe because i wasn't tagged, i actually wanted to do it. some reverse psychology taking place over here. but i was finally tagged by becky. see comment in this post, which made me laugh.
to people who know me in real life, i'm normal. but like most people, i'm secretly a freak. example: i always talk to myself in the bathroom. usually the bathroom is empty and it's okay. i'll say things like, "come on toilet paper, stop tearing before i'm ready." or "damnit people, why can't you wipe up the seat." and in all honesty, i try to keep the bathroom talking at a minimum when there are people around. people at my office don't have to know i'm out of my mind.
the one place i can't hide my quirks is at the dinner table. i am kind of weird when it comes to food.
without further ado...six things that make me weird.
1.) french toast: i cut each piece into tiny squares. put the syrup on the side and get upset if it runs into my toast cube pile. i also eat the crust first since the inside stuff is the better part worth saving for last.
2.) kit kats: my favorite part is that grainy, brown sugary stuff in the middle between the wafers. and since i'm not a huge fan of chocolate, it really just gets in the way. so i eat all the chocolate off first until all i have left is wafer/brown sugar goodness. note: i've also met another guy who eats them that way. and he's a genius. i think it's a sign that we're both geniuses. however, he considers ketchup his arch nemesis. i heart ketchup. so maybe i'm only half genius.
3.) roast beef sandwiches: i will literally only eat them with potato chips inside the sandwich. i prefer ruffles as they stay crunchy longer but they're increasingly hard to find. it's also a big production to get as many chips under the bread as possible for maximum roast beef/potato chip ratio.
4.) tacos: when i make them at home, only eat them if they're open faced tacos. i'll break a shell in half and layer the toppings on a flat half shell. sometimes i'll eat it like that, sometimes i'll take the other half and put it on top to make more of a sandwich than a taco. it's really the only way to get meat, lettuce, tomato and cheese all in one bite. if you make them normally, you only get one or two layers at a time. it makes no sense to me!
5.) hot chocolate: is only consumed with sickeningly vast amounts of whipped cream. i will keep the can next to me so that every time i finish a layer of it, i can add another. i'll add whipped cream to hot chocolate about 4 to 5 times with each 10oz mug.
6.) the last bite: this is more an indicator of how controlling and anal i am as a virgo, but i carefully plan the last bite of anything i eat (especially at restaurants) so that i get maximum satisfaction out of it.
