Hey kids! It’s time for another Things You Didn’t Know About Me Thursday!
1. I have a good luck purple rock.
Now, I’m not an incredibly superstitious person. I do believe in karma and some luck, but I typically believe that “luck” can be attributed to other things. Like if I study a ton for a test, I didn’t have good luck. I worked my freaking ass off. If you get a speeding ticket on the way to work, you didn’t have bad luck. You chose to speed and got caught. Neither of those have anything to do with luck.
That being said, I still have a lucky purple rock.
When I was young, my dad used to travel a lot for work. I’ve been told that this caused me to act out- not at daycare/school, but as soon as I came home I would have a meltdown. After my first day of preschool, to make me feel better when he left my dad gave me a special purple rock. He told me that I could rub the rock for good luck if I needed to. I lost the rock that day…
It’s kind of been a joke that if my dad gives me something, I’ll lose it that day. But I mean come on, who gives a 3 year old a rock and DOESN’T expect them to lose it at some point? I was just being efficient.
Whelp, a couple years ago my dad got me a purple rock after a business trip as a joke. I keep it in my purse.
2. It’s a pet peeve of mine if you laugh and then say, “That’s so funny.”
I know it was. You laughed.
Also a pet peeve if you just say, “That’s so funny.” Can’t you just laugh? I don’t need a narrator.
One of the ladies on the morning radio show I listen to does this all the time. Drives me crazy. Keep in mind this applies to conversing in real life. If you’re texting, chatting online, writing posts, responding to comments- basically in a situation where you aren’t actually talking to people, I think it’s completely different.
3. I haven’t brushed my hair since maybe middle school.
You don’t brush curly hair unless you want to look like Chewbacca.
Before y’all think I’m gross and don’t groom myself, I do comb my hair in the shower with a thick-tooth comb or run my fingers through it to get out knots.
4. My family is obsessed with oranges.
I mean, we eat a lot of fruit in general, but for some reason we consume a metric ass ton of oranges when they’re in season (and they aren’t even my favorite fruit!). We’ve been known to consume a crate of oranges from Costco in under a week…
My mom and I went to Sprouts earlier this week (my first trip- so fun!). This is how many oranges we bought.
That’s 3 bags of cuties and 1 enormous bag of regular oranges (so big the bag ripped). wait, what’s moderation??
5. I tried Kombucha for the first time on Monday!
I saw it at Sprouts and had wanted to try it for a while.
My mom and I split the Guava Goddess flavor and I loved it! Smells like a butt but I just didn’t breath through my nose. Tasted like a guava flavored carbonated drink. Quite delicious!
Do you believe in luck?
Is there a food you eat a TON of?
Ever try Kombucha?
