3.) I am a master at grocery shopping. I HATE going to the grocery store. Theres nothing I enjoy more than trying to weave through aisles full of screaming kids, motorized wheelchairs driven by morbidly obese people filling up their cart with ding dongs and doritos and little old women who can't see well enough to tell a box of oatmeal apart from a bottle of calcium supplements. Yes, I realize I will one day probably have a basket full of screaming kids and eventually will probably be that old lady buying a box of condoms because I thought it was a box of Depends but for now these individuals make the grocery store horrendous. Because of this, I have learned the aisles of the store we frequent and write my list according to the the store layout. Starting with produce, going down the meat aisle that leads to the dairy, and then back down maneuvering through the aisles. I am in my determined and focused vibe at the grocery store. If you see me on your aisle, you better turn around and get out of the way.
4.) I am a master in squeezing toothpaste out of the very bottom, far away corner of the tube. This drives Ben crazy. He doesn't understand why I can't just throw away the tube and open a new one. However, he doesn't realize how much toothpaste is hiding in those corners at the bottom of the tube just waiting for the opportunity to clean my pearly whites. However, he is starting to see how many extra toothbrushing sessions you can get out of tube if just use those hand muscles. I should thank my mom for helping me acquire this mastery.
5.) I am a master at falling asleep while watching a movie. Now, this doesn't include every movie. This only applies to movies that we view at home, I never fall asleep in the theatre, except that time I agreed to go watch one of the Star Wars/Star Trek movies (um, who is Darth Vader?) It always happens if we decide to watch a movie late at night. It doesn't mater if we're watching it on the couch or lying in bed. I. Always. Fall. Asleep. But its always that light sleep, so if Ben laughs at something I can laugh too so he doesn't know I have surrendered to my exhaustion. I eventually have to confess and let him know that I missed part (well most of) the movie and we have to start the whole process again the next day.
6.) I am a master in picking the yummier entree when Ben and I eat out. This occurs almost every time we try out a new restaurant or if we are both trying out new dishes at the restaurants we know and love. Choosing my meal is like choosing between a fabulous handbag on sale or an even more fabulous pair of shoes not on sale. It is a big decision. I love food and love meal times so choosing my meal is a pretty big deal, I always have to tell the waiter that we need several more minutes so I can make this important decision. Because of the great thought that goes into my decision, Ben is always jealous he didn't choose the entree I chose. I feel he should be grateful for my ability to choose yummy meal because not only does he get to try mine, he always gets to finish off what I can't finish. I think its a win-win situation for him.
