Snobs. Handkerchiefs. And chocolate.

The Prompts:

1.) Why did you do it?

Because I had to.

There was no other choice.


Ok. It was the alcohol. It makes me do some weird stuff.

2.) What is a common misconception about you?

Oooooooooo this is easy. Since I can remember I have been labelled as snobby. I am not snobby at all. I am shy. Extremely shy. If I do not know you then I am not comfortable around you and when I am not comfortable I am quiet. I think that is why I enjoy writing so much. Because I can be myself without worrying what others think about me. When I am forced to be in an uncomfortable situation I don't say much. Nuff said.

When I do get to know you, look out. I am the best friend you will ever have! And I like chocolate. What could be better than a non-snobby best friend who eats chocolate?

Yeah, I know.


3.) Describe a moment when you felt afraid.

I have many moments as I am generally a wimp and many things scare the heck out of me. Moments that come to mind are when

* my 2 year old son overdosed on over the counter cough syrup. True story. I will tell you about it sometime.

* the same son who overdosed got lost at a HUGE theme park. I wrote about it somewhere. Just cant find it. I guess that is what labels are for. I am new at this. Bare with me please.

* I was in labour and told there was no time for any pain medication. I was not out to be a hero. I wanted drugs!

* I got into a vehicle with my hubby for the first time. Yikes!

* I watched the television show "V". Remember when they ate live animals? And the green skin and blood? Ew.

* at 32 years old I went on a roller coaster. It was on that day that my age hit me like a ton of bricks. I am no longer able to tolerate the stuff that was fun as a teenager.

4.) In what ways are you turning into your mother?

I am turning into my mother in every way imaginable! It really is quite uncanny to see just how much I am like her. I talk like her. I look like her.

I remember as a kid my mom would disappear for 20 minutes every evening. She would head upstairs to get her jammies on and wash her face. I always thought that was the craziest thing ever. How long does it take a person to do their nightly routine? Really. She had a handkerchief that she would put on her head to keep her hair off of her face while doing her cleansing routine and it made me laugh.

Gosh she is old.

I will never do that. Ever.

Haha. I do the exact same thing! I disappear every night for 20 minutes to get my jammies on, put lotion on and wash my face. I don't have the lovely handkerchief but I do have a clip to take the hair off of my face.

So I guess there is one difference.

5.) Are you always right?

You don't SOUND snobby!

I like you!

Great post.

Jenny said...

Wow you did all of them, Great post. You don't seem snobby to me, but I get that a lot too because I don't talk a lot when I first meet people.

Rats, thought I was gonna be in luck finding a new BFF. BUT, I'm looking for a 'snobby' BFF that loves chocolate.

Sooo...are ya sure you aren't a snob? Bwahahaha.

Found you through Mama Kat's workshop...

Very entertaining post!

Christy said...

What a good post. I am glad I clicked on you through Mama Kat's.

Lauren said...

I have been called a snob too. Common misconception about shy girls!!

Eighty MPH Mom said...

You don't sound snobby to me! I was shy too, but everyone thought I was mean....oh well. Being like mom isn't so bad (when you get older)...I'm more and more like my mom everyday.

Please check out my Writers Workshop if you have the chance:

A non-snobby friend who loves chocolate? Now that's my type of friend!

Oh My ... your description of 2 could have been written by me! That is EXACTLY how I come off! My mother always said "you are such a snob" and I was like "I'm not. I'm shy." Blogging is such a good fit for me because, you know, I don't actually have to see and really TALK to anybody! I can just write with them! And I love chocolate too!

I'm really shy too, and I always come off a snob for it also.People just need to take the time to get to know people then they will see how great they are.
