#1609 - On Quirks

We're on vacation, so another short post.  I was watching an early episode of "30 Rock" where Liz decides to break up with her boyfriend.  She's trying to rush to work and notices that he shaved in the sink (the water's softer in here), he chews with his mouth open, and he doesn't like the name "Bodie."

It reminded me of when my husband and I first started dating.  On one of our first dates we talked about the little things that had annoyed us about other people.  Almost ala Seinfield who'd broken up with so many women over different things (man hands, being a virgin, etc.)

As I sit here at the hotel watching the wave of humanity rush past, I notice little things that people unconsciously do and wonder what I could and couldn't live with.  Anything that has to do with snorting, or swallowing mucous or sniffing repeatedly would be a deal breaker.  A boss of mine did this clicking thing with his teeth and cheek unconsciously.  Any kind of tic would be hard to look past.

My hubby's got a familial palsy that I've gotten used to.  And he doesn't make any annoying noises when he eats.  So he's still a keeper.  I haven't asked him if I have any little quirks.  Maybe I don't want to know...

Funny! I know, quirks can annoy. It's a little scary getting older as I see more quirks coming out in myself and all my friends.

Fun choice of words. I'd be afraid to ask. I'm sure I don't have any--well, hardly any...
