Welcome to Take Two of March’s Secret Subject Swap. This week, 11 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts. Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:
My subject is “What childhood habit do you find is still engrained into who you are?”. It was submitted by Victory Rose.
There are so many things that come to mind but the most prominent thing I still do learned in my childhood is how I respond to when called.
When I was a kid, my mother hated when I said, “Just a second,” or “Just a minute!.”
I was to respond with “Coming!”
Even now at age 37 when she calls for me I still answer, “Coming.”
Strangely Dr. Evil prefers a different response and tried to change what our spawn say. I swashed that! I want the response to be “Coming!” Anything else sounds weird, rude, naughty, wrong….you know…it’s not “Coming!”
Also, I used to wake up and see if I could make my bed in under one minute on my digital clock. Stuffed animals, pretty pillows and all. I wanted it made in under a minute. I would fly around the bed, make noise, and seriously get upset if I was over that 60 second mark. I find myself in the last year or two doing that again. It’s sort of funny – didn’t really think about it until this questions. But yep, I’m doing that again too!
Other things I still do…eat all the chocolate off a snickers before eating the rest of it. Opening presents on Christmas Eve. Having my spawn choose their favorite meal to be prepared at home on their birthdays. And vacuum. I loved to vacuum as a kid. And take lots of pictures. I like to fold my t-shirts the same way. I fold my towels as I did growing up.
I still get embarrassed for characters on a television show. I’m still scared of the dark. I don’t like breaking rules or getting in trouble. (I didn’t do either of those often as a kid – even asked my Mama to see if I’m just remembering myself as an angel.) I like going to church (although we’re not so good at that….). I like getting the mail….I loved doing that as a kid. I miss mowing the lawn with a push mower (NOT GONNA happen with 3 acres) and raking leaves…
This question is awesome. It’s making me aware of what my spawn do now and maybe I can help them learn some new habits, routines, or rituals they will carry to adulthood. And pass onto my grandspawn.
Now…go visit some of those links up there!!!!
