I've been tagged by Coggy I have really enjoyed reading everyone else's responses (and am more than a little surprised by how often I was thinking "hey me too!")

The rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you (As above).
2) Post the rules.
3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people.
5) Be sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting what you did.

1.) I can fit my entire hand (up to my wrist) in my mouth. I've been told I look like a snake devouring its prey when doing it. It made me quite popular at fraternity parties.

2.) I taught myself to read at a very early age (like before four). My mom said she wasn't really sure how old I was as one day she just realized I was reading things around me. As a result, I read more like a speed reader than line by line and phonics totally baffles me to this day.

3.) I hate talking on the phone to people I don't know. Even if there were no food in the house, I would rather go hungry than order out myself. And honestly, I don't even really like talking on the phone with people I do know. So, if you are someone I talk to on the phone with any regularity, you can be sure I really care about you.

4.) I absolutely LOVE ramen noodles. I grew up in a very traditional household. My mom was a homemaker in the most J.une C.leaver way and as a result we had 3 homemade meals a day my whole life growing up. I never had ramen noodles until college and I fell in love. I still consider them a "treat."

5.) I have never had a cavity. And no I'm not a freak about brushing and flossing. My dad (who is also my dentist) says I have the hardest teeth he has ever seen.

6.) If it doesn't contain chocolate, I don't consider it truly dessert.

So that's me. Who's next?

I think pretty much everyone has already been tagged or has done this recently. So, if you are reading this and haven't gone yet, consider yourself tagged!

My eyelid flipping (that I learned to do when I was 19!) was a huge party trick. Not exactly whole hand in the mouth calibre, but, good for a laugh or an "ewwww" when we were too drunk to do anything more exciting. Big mouthed girls are always a huge hit at fraternity parties. (Ha, ha, ha. I'm teasing. Don't hate me ;o)

I TOTALLY get the talking on the phone thing, although it does not extend to ordering take out for me.

c.-Are you trying to suggest that the fraternity brothers might have had some sort of "unseemly" interest in my trick??

ha ha ha ;)

OMG, I didn't even think about the mouth thing for boys, until now...ewwww. I just thought, what if it gets stuck????

G said...

haha!! And that's all I will say on the hand in mouth thing.

I hate talking on the phone too, but I hate answering the door more. So for delivery, I call, husband gets the door. Nowadays though, you can bypass the phone and order online, YAY!

After all the Cleaver meals, did you also experience the freshman 15? My roommate in college grew up like that and would eat marshmallow creme and Nillas for breakfast... lol

Oh Kalakly don't even pretend you're that innocent ;o)

I read this post while at work today and I almost spat up my coffee when I read the hand in mouth one.

Ashleigh said...

Glad the hand/mouth thing is giving you all a chuckle. Sorry about the coffee Coggy =)

G.- I actually lost the freshman 15(and then some) when I went away to school. My mom was a great cook AND she loved to bake.

Just a heads up...I tagged ya for yet another meme.
