Daily Prompt; Far From Normal


Many of us think of our lives as boringly normal, while others live the high life. Take a step back, and take a look at your life as an outsider might. Now, tell us at least six unique, exciting, or just plain odd things about yourself.

Oh my gosh! This is so funny to me> the boring one. The chosen one for the boring category. They want me to tell all of you at LEAST six unique, exciting or just plain odd things about myself. Wow! Can I do it? Can I make myself sound like someone you would just love to have as a friend?

Let me think as I go along here.

Six things, unique or odd about me.

1. Well I can tell one thing about me right off the bat that is odd. I huddle under my blankets and heavy comforter and sleep with my fan on high-speed. Yep, even in the winter!

2. Maybe one thing about me is that I am a soul searcher. Not a gold finder. Not a loan shark, but a soul searcher in other people. I try real hard to find at least one good quality about each person I meet. After all God made you in his image. The least I can do is find something good too. Even my half-sister as well as we get along like dogs and cats, I still believe buried deep inside of her is a lonely woman who has never gotten over her husband’s death. I try to keep this in mind as I see her daggers coming towards me.

3. I love quietness. I think this is sort of an old-age thing but no matter what I will take it. Quietness for me does not necessarily mean no noise. It may mean only hearing my keyboard tap a way as I talk to you. It may mean that the noise I hear in the background is the Escape channel on Sirrus.

4. I love order, oh yes, order in my house and life. I hate surprises unless it is my birthday! LOL. It takes me a while to adopt to change. I know when my bills are coming due. I know pretty much what I am eating the entire day when I get up in the mornings. I like my house to be clean and unmessy.

5. I absolutely love to walk but not alone. I still have not returned to my classes because of a lingering cough but am looking forward to the walking track and the pool. Come on cough, disappear!

6. The last thing about me is a love-hate relationship with men. I don’t see myself ever getting married now that I will be a year older in April, but I would love a companion to date. I hate being alone and yet I love it. Does this make any sense at all to you? Is it odd or what? It is what it is as my friends say so I just learn to accept that I am an odd creature.

  1. We are so is I,at! I don’t know if it’s a love-hate thing with men. You are a pretty loving person. Maybe just preferring to be on your own at home, which is not really understood in society, so people start throwing around labels and explanations. I love being alone, too!


    • this is true. I never thought I could live life without being married, but either I have adjusted or I do rather like being my own person. In a marriage there is so much give and take and my last marriage was me always giving, so this is nice. I understand the auto correct, don’t worry my friend

  3. Terry, I agree …. with a relationship … but not living together – what things my way … and I sleep with window open the whole year around. We are very much a like and I think there is many of us that .. recognize themselves in your words here.


  4. Terry this is a great exercise to get to know yourself better. I see that you did not list achievements but rather focus on a few quirks – I like that!
    I know what you are saying as far as relationships go. You have become at peace with yourself and your own company and so feel comfortable not to take someone on a full time commitment to fill a part-time void.

  10. I discovered a whole group of e-mails I missed and this is one of them. I haven’t been on the computer more than about 3 days in the last week and I’ve got a bigger backlog than I realized. I, too, like quiet and to be alone. I keep my balcony door open a wee bit in the winter and wide in the summer but can’t sleep with my bedroom window open because of the traffic noise. And I can’t sleep with a fan or my air purifier because of the noise, so in that respect we are different. I also love to walk but not alone. I like order to a point but I am not the world’s most orderly person by a long shot. If things get too messy it bothers me to the point I have to do something about it, but I can live with a certain amount of clutter.


      • Just the balcony door which is a hallway and room length away from my bedroom door. I don’t hear the sounds from there enough to disturb my sleep. I have tried the bedroom window in the summer when it is really hot, but I just doze and don’t really go into a deep sleep. The traffic here goes all night long though it isn’t as busy at night and the buses don’t run at night. But the sirens come and go at any time of the day and night.
