Me weird?

I've been tagged a few times about 6 weird things about me but I guess I'm so normal I am having a hard time with it!(haha) I had to ask my kids for help! Believe it or not they had a hard time too! I'm afraid that is just because they are so used to my ways. I asked my son-in-law and I think maybe he had a few things in mind but was afraid to say them! Here goes!

1. I'll start with the not so funny one first. I have been having dizzy spells for over 30 years. This causes a major problem because I also have severe motion sickness. All I can do is go to bed. It usually passes in a day. Several doctors have tried to figure it out and I have heard everything from MS to arthritis in my neck. Now I just deal with it. The worst part is how sudden they come on.
Enough of that stuff now on to the good stuff!

2. I eat cold Campbell's Pork and Beans with grape jelly mixed in. I know it sounds awful but it's good. My daughter eats it too!

3. I can't sleep in flannel. No flannel nightgown or sheets. I used to but can't any more so I can at least blame it on age! I just feel too constrained. I cannot have any lace on a nightgown that touches my skin. It makes me itch.

4. I cannot stand to see someone put a tissue or napkin in their mouth. I gives me the shivers just thinking about it! My brother used to do it all the time just to make me crazy. ( I don't have any idea how I discovered this but is was when I was a kid)

5. I can only wear white cotton socks or my feet burn. This is difficult now because they put Lycra and polyester in socks now. I check all the sock labels and buy the ones with the most cotton.

6. I prefer instant coffee to drip or perked. When I started drinking coffee it was instant so that's what I'm used to.

My daughter helped with 3, 4 & 6,my memory isn't what it used to be.My son-in-laws offering is that I'm weird because I like my son-in-law! I don't think it's weird to like my kids spouses but it may be a little unique. I don't feel weird about that but very fortunate!

If you haven't done this meme then consider your self tagged! Please leave me a comment so I can check out how weird you are!

I would say some of these are "unusual" but not weird.
I love the coziness of flannel now, it used to make me feel way too hot at night!

Only dripped coffee will do over here at cityfarmer...otherwise everything except pork and beans sounds like okay to me...
Have you ever tried noni juice for the dizzy spells?

Did you peek at my "weird" list?

PEA said...

Wow, are you weird!!! lol just teasing! Actually I found your list quite interesting because a few could have been written about me!! I also get motion sickness very easily and can't even lay straight on my back or on my right side or I get dizzy. I've been to the specialist and all they can say is it could be vertigo and to learn to live with it! Also, I can't stand wearing flannel or sleeping on flannel sheet...I think I'd self combust from heat, I'm so hot all the time...ya ya I know, that age thing! lol Hugs xox

Grape jelly in pork and beans? LOL. First time I've heard of that one.
I am very picky about my coffee and only like drip coffee, with precisely one heaping teaspoon of Coffee Mate in it. I can tell by the color if it's the correct amount the moment I look at it. It must be Coffee Mate--Cremora just doesn't cut it. Hee hee. We all have our little weird habits!
Have a great weekend.
