Quirky Meme

My buddy Megan (who plays a mean game of Scrabulous) tagged me several weeks ago and I'm just now getting around to responding.

Six random non-important quirks about me:

1. I'm a horrible procrastinator. (See intro paragraph above.)
2. I have a fear of birds. They are flappy and unpredictable and, in my mind, quite dirty.
3. Unless you count intramural bowling in college, I have never once played on an organized sports team.
4. As a result of my self-protective tendencies, I have never broken a bone. (Until I met Kevin, that is, who accidentally broke one of my toes on our honeymoon and then later broke my nose while opening a car door for me. He still denies both bones were actually broken, but I heard definite snapping and felt definite lingering pain.)
5. I currently own 72 pairs of shoes. (Ten pairs of boots of various colors/heights, 7 pairs of athletic shoes, and 55 pairs of flats, pumps, flip flops, wedges, etc.) I'm rather embarrassed by that fact. I do NOT own a pair of Crocs and never will. I wear a size 11, so I get pretty excited when I find a pair of cute shoes in my size on sale. It's a sickness, I tell you.
6. I don't like the words panties, ointment, bougainvillea, booty, or fluffernutter. Especially when they're all used in the same sentence.

Flappy and unpredictable? Intramural bowling? (That exists?!)

Hey, did you hear the one about the pirates that collected their booty while wearing bouganvillea-print panties, eating fluffernutters, and using special ointment to get away with it? I'll have to tell you about it some time.

Yes indeed, Trinity used to have a bowling alley and offered Bowling as a PE course. (It's since been demolished.)

I mostly dislike the word booty when used in the other context, as an alternative to bum or bottom. Highly offensive to me but the word seems awfully commonplace these days.

Okay! That's cool. I didn't know some of these about you.

So, I'll be interested in finding out how you like the Birds of Prey rodeo show! I hope ya'll have a great day.

Something like:

"The only ointment that would cure the bougainvillea-hued rash on her bootie was a salve of fluffernutter -- peanut butter and marshmallow creme -- applied liberally between the cheeks and panties."
