Body Oddities. I'll show you mine if you show me yours.

There are things my body can do that seem normal to me. I don't have anything double jointed and my tongue isn't super long or forked, so if that's what you were looking for you should stop reading.

I can smell the presence of a cold virus on someone. If you are close talking with me and I smell it, you will come down with the common cold within 48 hours.

My sneezing in a 3 2 3 pattern indicates rain is on the horizon.

When someone is worthy- either in song or art or phrase- chills run up my spine and make my hair stand up. And by worthy, I mean worthy of praise for their accomplishments- the kind of accomplished artist who comes by it naturally. This is what they were meant to do. this is what you were meant to hear or see or read.

I get goosebumps in church- the good kind.

My hair works out better if I don't go to a professional.

Lightbulbs actually do go off over my head when I get something.

I can smell OUTSIDE on my children's heads.

I know the sound of everything mechanical in my house and can list each room by room.

My body is so electric, I blow light bulbs when I flip switches and ALWAYS get shocked opening the mailbox and pushing a shopping cart.

My eyesight is so bad I can't see my own hand held at arm's length, but when I used topical steroids to heal a case of iritis in my right eye, I could see like Superman for 3 months, except for the x-ray part.

I don't go to the doctor ( except for gyno/childbirth/appts, I 've been less than five times in my adult life.) I guess I heal on my own, except for the broken arm when I was 5, and that time, my parents let me try to heal myself- for about, oh, two weeks.

I wear smaller sizes when I don't exercise- at all.
Okay, now you can hate me. I never seem to lose muscle tone.
