Things You Don’t Know About Me

I like airports, but hate to fly
I sing and dance when no one is looking
I pick my zits
I hate forwarded emails, but I always read them.
Sometimes I don’t brush my teeth until the middle of the afternoon.
I can’t sit still for very long. I find it very distracting. Although I would love to. The thought of sitting still and meditating on something is very appealing. I feel it would help me focus or it would just look like I was focused, which might just do the trick. But try as I may, I get distracted. I start to pick at the carpet, bite my lip, crack my toes, and then think of all the things I have to do, but do the things I want to do instead.


I slept with my baby’s Glo-worm so it would smell like me. I kept digging the plastic face out of the small of my back last night. I don’t know what I was thinking. Perhaps I thought that if it smells like me she would press her tiny nose into it and dream of being nestled in my arms. But when I gave it to her at nap time, she tossed it aside and finished chewing on the crib railing.
