Friday Confessions

Friday is short-post day.  So I’m going to use this space today to get some things off my chest.  (Some of these come from a need I’m feeling to assert myself against the trends I’m seeing on blogs and Pinterest.  Others are just things I’m coming to terms with about myself.)

1.  I don’t get the fascination with mustaches.
2.  I don’t like Sinatra.
3.  I don’t like this craze over chevrons in decorating and clothing.
4.   When I say I’m going to “sew” something, I’m going to use stitch tape.
5.  If it’s a movie made before 1990, I don’t want to watch it, no matter how good you tell me it is.  If it’s not even in color, don’t even bother recommending it.
6.  I have no desire to live in a foreign country.  By that, I mean anywhere but Central Texas.
7.   I can’t read Dickens.
8.   I threw away 50% of the work that my students turned in without ever looking at it.
9.  Most of the time, I DO remember your name and how I know you.  But if you don’t seem to remember who I am, I’ll pretend we’ve never met.
10.   I’ll circle the block three times to avoid being the first one at a party.
11.  Yes, I was a teacher, but I still have no idea how to make small talk with children.  Or adults, for that matter.

Aaah.  Nothing like getting it all out in the open!

  1. You don’t “get” mustaches, like you don’t understand them or you don’t personally grow them. Confession: I have to wax mine, but I prefer to just say I waxed my upper lip. 🙂

    • Lol, I hadn’t thought of how that sounded. I have been confused with the number of mustache pins on Pinterest…like fake mustache tattoos, mustaches on drinking straws, mustaches on newborn pictures, mustache masks, etc. I just don’t get why everyone is so fascinated with them all of the sudden; they’re never that great in real life.

      I don’t think ladies ever have to call it a “mustache”–upper lip is perfectly true. Or, you can be like a lady that I think we both know and call them “stray eyebrows.” 🙂

  2. ditto on number 9. although there is one girl at church who i introduced myself to WAY to many times to be excusable before I finally started catching myself mid introduction and trying to backpedal. now THAT was awkward. so now i think that sometimes it’s appropriate to gently remind someone how you met (as long as it doesn’t make you look like a stalker), so that they don’t feel stupid when they start realizing how many times you’ve “met.”

  3. i was just talking about number 9 this morning! i pretend i don’t remember people ALL the time!

  4. In reference to this post, I thought you should know S giving you a hard time is a sign of affection.

  5. No movies before 1990?!?!?!?! You do realize that technicolor has been around since the 30s, right;). But for the record, I don’t like mustaches on anyone except Sam Elliot.

  6. Ha! Love the last one.
