Viki, over at VikiBabbles has tagged me with a weird meme.
No, wait, the MEME’s not weird. The meme is about weirdness. Here are the rules:
List five weird things about yourself. Then tag five others and tell them they’ve been tagged by a comment on their blog.
Hmmm. Sounds simple enough. But wait... who defines what’s weird and what’s just, maybe, a little quirky? I mean, I think a lot of people are kind of weird, but just about everybody thinks I’m a very “normal” guy. And I am. Aren’t I? Well, who’s to say?
This may be harder than it sounded. Let me think. Okay, here goes:
1. I can hear a song just two or three times, and have it memorized cold (if I like it). Including nuances of the singer’s pronunciation (if any) and timing, the beat, the melody, the lyrics. Is that weird? I don’t know. It seems normal to me.
2. Uhhhh. I’m just sitting here wracking my brain. What little there is to wrack. I don’t think there ARE five weird things about me! I just asked Carol to help, but she snorted and went back to playing Sudoku on the laptop. Heck, she thinks it’s weird that I blog every day.
I mean, sure, there are things about me that might be different from a lot of others, but does that make them weird?
Tell you what... I’m going to ask for some help. My older daughter Christina reads this blog daily, and if anybody can figure out 4-5 more weird things about me, she can. In fact, knowing her, she’ll come up with about a dozen things SHE considers weird about her dad. But consider the source, please!
Okay, Christina, do your worst. In a comment, list some things about your old dad that you think others will think are weird.
Go ahead. Take your best shot. You won’t hurt my feelings. Much. I hope.
Oh, go ahead. I’ll get over it.
If you come up with five things, then I’ll tag some others.
The Duke rests.
