Blog Challenge – Day 29: Five Weird Things That I Like

  1. The smell of clean things – chlorine, bleach, hand sanitizer, etc.
  2. Old cemeteries and tombstones. I think there’s something really personal and beautiful about the kinds of messages people used to write on their loved ones’ headstones. They give you a sense of what the person was truly like. That’s still true to some extent today, but I find the older ones are a little less cliched.
  3. Having conversations in the dark. I don’t really consider this weird, just something people don’t usually think to do. I think you’re more open and honest when you don’t have the other person’s body language to frame your words on.
  4. Pepper on my fries. I started this when I was young so my dad and brother wouldn’t eat my fries at McDonald’s. Eventually it became a habit, and now I usually just do it to offset the saltiness of most foods.
  5. When I eat popcorn at the movies, I only allow myself one piece per preview. Once the title appears on the screen, I let myself eat as much as I want. I don’t know if I necessarily like doing this, but I just get angry with myself if I eat half the bag before the movie’s even begun.

Just thought of some new ones: I love the smell of really new and really old books. And I like reading obituaries, and imagining the lives of the people I’m reading about.
