You know you’re odd when…

It is a well known fact that I’ve been labeled as odd ever since I was born, apparently. I don’t know why, I think I’m pretty normal, but what is normal anyways? So, I’ve decided to list some things I do that are perfectly normal to me, yet a bit weird for the rest of the world…

1. I have 3 cats and they are treated like family. I talk to my cats and I believe they understand me.

2. I sing aloud or to myself when I’m alone. I have a radio in my office space and if a song I like starts playing, I may sing along. What’s wrong with that? I have that office to myself.

3. I get bored at parties and pubs. I feel like I’m wasting my time.

4. I read. I love literature.

5. I have rescued animals in need, (toads, iguanas, dogs, birds, cats, etc.).

6. I like theater plays and puppeteering. I also like independent and foreign films.

7. I don’t like beer or soda drinks, I only drink water or juice, but I do love red wine and whisky.

8. I like animated movies. I love claymation and computer animation too.

9. I use movie lines from “Top Secret,” “The Princess Bride,” “Burn After Reading,” and many Peter Sellers movies (among others) to reply to people. Of course, only very few ‘get it’ and I irremediably leave laughing out loud.

10. I observe people and I listen to them attentively when they talk to me.

11. I also observe nature and I am very intuitive. I see behavior patterns or details, in both people and in nature, that nobody else sees.

12. I write.

  1. I’ve been writing since I was a teenager, so according to your #12 I’ve been weird for decades. You could say it’s our fate (because weird originally meant ‘fate’ in English.

    Like somebody else said, none of this makes you odd. You still might be, but I think that’s only cool. I rather have any odd person for company than a mainstream boring sod. As to the list, I could have signed everyone of them except number 7. I like good and real beer (not mass-produced, chemical beer) and as much as I hate to admit it, I do like evil sodas too – some at least.

      Hahaha, thank you for stopping by Munchow, I could have added that I role-play, I dress up and make up characters, I admire Tim Burton and Peter Jackson like they’re my heroes, and some more things, but then the list would have been too long. 🙂

    Girl, none of that makes you odd. You are unique & timeless and don’t let anybody tell you different. (mostly because I identify with most of them and that’ll make me “odd” too!!!) ILY ❤

    Hmmm…what’s odd about those things? I guess “normal” is relative. It depends on where you are, where/how you grew up, and what you are used to that defines normal or odd for a person.
