Phobias and funny things about me….
Ok. So I guess everyone ‘s a little weird, right? I mean, we all have our little things about us, that makes us who we are.
I don’t really know why I am writing this.
I thought it would be a
crazy good idea to let you know a few fun things about me. Things that will probably make you laugh or wonder what a weirdo I am. All in the name of embracing who we are. So here goes……
1. I am afraid of Pigeons
Pigeons are evil little diseased birds and they are out there, waiting to fly in my face and attack me. I actually scream quite loud actually, if a pigeon tries to attack me*. Trafalgar Square is a no-go.
*limps with it’s diseased legs into my field of vision
2. I can’t chew baked beans
This comes from a long manifested issue where my Mum would make us finish our plates before we could leave the table. So I, erm, used to just swallow down baked beans whole,because I hated the texture and just couldn’t chew them. I still do this now. I didn’t realise this was weird for a long time….
3. I am scared of talking on the phone
It all started with a well meaning phone call to the dogs trust when I was about 12. I had just watched their advert on TV asking for £1 a week donations. I wanted to give them some of my pocket money. However, their hard sales pressure telephone manner and their constant ringing on the house phone, and the fact my mum made me talk to them every time they called, has had a profound effect on my ability to make telephone calls ever since.
4. I love salad cream on my baked beans (that I don’t chew….I know….weirdo)
Don’t judge until you’ve tried it, right? It’s best with a jacket potato in my opinion……
5. One for the….what?
I used to think that Baa Baa black sheep gave a bag of wool to the Day. Not Dame. To my shame I only realised this about two years ago…..
6. I have a funny laugh
People have remarked I sound like Frank Bruno…..
7. I do a weird flappy hands thing when I’m nervous
Yes. I do. So if you see me do it, just nudge me OK, coz I HATE doing it but I don’t realise I’m doing it.
What weird and wonderful things do you do? I’d love to know. Mainly to make me feel less weird……
