I was working on a more serious reflection for today, but I’m concerned it was coming off a bit whiney so I’m putting it in the blender for some reworking.
So I’m switching gears from serious to frivolous 1. I figured I’d share some odd things about me 2. So, here goes.
- While I like tomato-based foods like ketchup, salsa, and marinara I cannot stand tomatoes themselves.
- I am terrified of needles, and other pointy objects.
- I’m a pastor, but I have a difficult time relating to most Christians 3.
- I think mustard on hot dogs is gross 4.
- The one sign of OCD I display is an aversion to being sticky. Having sticky hands freaks me out.
- I used to delve so deep into my own head my family could scream at me and I wouldn’t notice them for minutes. They called it “Wes World 5.”
- I hate being constricted. The thought of donning a tie irks me.
- My older son once went into the bathroom with a book and sat on the toilet seat. When he was asked what he was doing he replied, “I want to be like daddy.”
- When people call out my name as I walk by my automatic response is, “I didn’t do it.”
- I get annoyed every time a preacher says, “Let me illustrate this with a story 6.”
- I don’t care for onions, they taste icky.
- In every Sorting Hat I’ve ever taken I always come out Ravenclaw.
- Not only am I a middle child, I’m left handed, and introverted 7.
- The initial personality test I took as a first year college student flagged me as someone who was likely to drop out and never go back 8.
- I’d love to get a doctorate in US History, with a concentration on US religious development.
- I was once required to take the side of Arius in a theology debate for class. I didn’t like it.
- Christian-ese annoys me 9.
- I had no idea how long this list was.
- Its not as big of a shift as it sounds. I spend most of my time shifted somewhere between the two. ↩
- Other than the general oddness I typically have on display, that is. ↩
- Progressive, conservative, and in-between. It just seems like folks are often protecting their clans than living the faith. ↩
- I know it’s considered heresy by most hot dog eaters, but I’m a ketchup man. ↩
- I still go there sometimes, the stories are amazing. ↩
- Because, often, the story has nothing to do with the point. ↩
- The tri-fecta which leads to adolescence being particularly torturous. ↩
- I laughed at my advisor, I don’t think she expected that. ↩
- And the dialect has drifted so much from the version with which I was fluent that I sometimes have no idea what people are saying. ↩
Slytherin for life!
I like you.
LMAO! I tend to be Ravenclaw as well, though I think I got sorted into Hufflepuff once… 🙂 I match on several of these points, too, particularly the hatred of the Christian-ese that my cousins are so quick to spew. UUUUUUUUUUUUUUGH.
