Oh you cruel, cruel creator of this 10-Days meme. As if I have not yet exposed enough of myself, on the final day you ask me for a confession. Haven’t I been doing that all along?
Hmmmm I’m pretty boring. I don’t know that I have a juicy secret to confess that would virally attract and drive millions of readers to this blog making me a phenomenon of the week. Ooooo oooo or do I have a self-incriminating video that would rise to the top of You Tube charts? Negative.
Geez. I really do need to get a more exciting life! What I do have is this …
Day Ten: One confession.
I come from a runny nose family. I don’t know why, but our noses always seem to be sniffley or drippy. The majority of us keep tissues or handkerchiefs on us at all times. I recall one time asking my siblings if anyone had a tissue to spare and my sister pulled an entire box out of her purse (it was a big purse)! I try to have a box of tissues in at least the living room and the bedroom at all times. Oh and at my work office. I’d keep one in my home office as well if it was actually organized and functioning as an office instead of a random storage/cramped guest room.
But anywho … when I was a wee one, before I was fully aware of my hereditary snotty condition, in a full-of-snot kind of way not in a stick your nose up in the air at the rest of the world kind of way, I didn’t know to carry tissues with me at all times. So … HERE COMES THE BIG CONFESSION … wait … for… it …
… I used to blow my nose in my shirt! A lot. I was full of snot. It was the most convenient way for me to clear out the ‘ol nostrils. I’m not sure my Mama knew what the dried up marks were on my shirt at first. Eventually I’m sure I told her and outgrew the habit, because, NO I do not do it anymore. Oh dear God, I hope that blowing your nose in your shirt isn’t a hereditary condition as well! If it is, my kids are so screwed!
And THAT boys and girls is my big confession to wrap up this 10-Days meme. It really has been a challenging and learning experience. I’ve reflected back on things I haven’t thought of for a long time, like the nose blowing in the shirt phase I went through. I discovered new things about myself by typing these lists up and launching them off into cyberspace. And I enjoyed it all. The good, the bad, and the eeeeew did I really do that! One small step for man, one giant leap for this crazy cupcake lovin’, greasy head sweat hatin’ girl.
Until next time my friends, may your tissue supply be a plenty and your exposure to greasy head sweat be few and far between, if any.
Go in peace. AMEN!
