Things only my family would understand

Goodness! Week 10 already. Today’s topic is a little, well, I don’t want to say intrusive, but it kinda is, because I’m wondering if I have to explain WHY only my family would understand. I’m gonna take the easy way out here and just list them without explaining why. It’s not only easier, it’s less embarrassing. You guys have enough imagination, you might be able to answer why I’ve listed these things. If you can’t…oh well!

In no apparent order, only my family would understand:

  • my insane, almost pathological need for privacy
  • why shopping gives me a panic attack
  • my love for old black and white movies from the 30’s and 40’s
  • the reason I don’t remember my sophomore year in college
  • why I consider mayonnaise sandwiches comfort food
  • my uber-defined personal space bubble
  • my issues with food.
  • the reason I dislike Tom Brady
  • why I’ve dyed my hair since I was 16

It’s gonna be interesting to see if the other authors on this blog challenge put up their reasons and don’t take the embarrassed coward’s way out that I did! Click on their links and find out.

  1. I love black and white movies from the 30s and 40s. Gaslight, anyone?

    • Peggy Jaeger

      LOVED Gaslight! My fav are the screwball comedies, though, of that era. Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Jimmy Stewart, Claudette Colbert! The best


  2. Love those old black and white movies – especially those noir movies! Uber defined personal space bubble – points to this girl right here! Ecto gammut – never without my permission! Reason why I dyed my hair since I was 16 – prematurely grey here, now fully grey thanks to chemo/radiation. OH, I an so relate!

      Ellie – we are sisters from other misters!!! The premature grey thing? yeah, me too. Went completely battle ship grey at 16.LOve the moive noirs, but the screwball comedies were and are still my favs. I can recite every Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn/ JImmy Stewart movie from 1939!


  3. I love old black and white movies I also have an insane need for privacy. And I didn’t explain my list, either. If I explained, then they’d all be public knowledge instead of things only my family understands. 🙂
