Day 2 (of 31)

Day 2: What makes you uniquely you?
 
I’m sure this is a tough one for most people because no matter what you say, you feel like it’s going to make you sound conceited, right?  Well that’s the beauty of having a blog!  It’s all about the author and their point of view! 
 
That’s what this blog is about, anyway 😀
 
I’ve always been unique.  Which, is really just a nice way of saying “I’m strange but please still love me”.  Don’t belive me?  Here is some proof:
 
Exhibit A: When I was younger, I was so pumped to get glasses.  I’m pretty sure I called my eye doctor’s office every day for 2 weeks until they came in. 
 
I was in 3rd grade. 
 
They were giant blue, round frames. 
 
I was in love. 
 
Exhibit B: I counted down the days until I could get braces.  Obviously I learned the error of my ways once the braces were actually on my poor teeth. 
 
I still shudder when I’m eating pudding and the spoon scrapes against my teeth.
 
Exhibit C: I loved to read Little House of the Prairie books while sitting on a chair in the middle of my bedroom, wearing a dress & an afghan across my lap so I could be “in character”.  In fact, one year for Halloween, I went as Laura Ingles Wilder.  Complete with ankle boots & an ankle-length dress.
 
That is a completely true story.  Ask my mom.
 
Exhibit D: In high school, I might have broken curfew twice.  Both times, I even called my parents to tell them that I was going to be 5 minutes late and please-oh-please-don’t-ground-me-forever.
 
They didn’t.  They just laughed at me.
 
Exhibit E: In high school college, my senior boyfriend took his freshman girlfriend to a party and he got a little wastey while we were there.  Obviously I couldn’t drive us home.  I was only 14 and didn’t even have a learner’s permit.  Even if I had, I’m pretty sure that it says somewhere in the fine print that the licensed driver in the front seat has to be sober.  Also?  I was a little buzzed myself.  Oh, puh-lease!  Like you didn’t drink a little in high school college!  So, what did the dorky girl (me) do?  Called my parents to come pick us up.  And they did.  Everybody at the party was mortified, excluding myself.  We needed a ride home & I knew that neither one of us could drive us.  Nor did I trust anybody at the party to drive us home.
 
The strange thing is, I knew all of those things were weird but I publicly loved them anyway.  No amount of side-eyes from my friends would deter me.  No amount of “Are you sure?!” from my parents would change my mind.
 
I yam what I yam.
 
That’s what makes me, uniquely me!

  1. You are lucky…we still love you anyway!! 🙂 Unique people are WAYYY more interesting. It would suck if we were all the same….borrrrrrrrring! 🙂

  2. You forgot to say, we drove you home and didn’t say anything to either of you because we would rather you call and get a ride that thy to chance it and get in an accident. yep, you and your sister may look a lot alike but so different in personality, I think she still hates her glasses!
    I think you get all the weirdness from your father’s side of the family (right those related to me?? Hello?).
    Love ya,
    Mom
