is that normal?

it's time to link up with allyce for another "is it normal?" post! there are some fantastic question's today, so here we go!

#1 -  is it normal to lie about your age?

no. it might seem normal, but come on people. really? it's not that big of deal. and i know you might think, "oh, you're so young. you have no reason to lie about your age, so your opinion doesn't count." well, try being the youngest person everywhere you go, all the freaking time. i've never been tempted to lie and say that i'm younger, but i have been tempted to say that i'm older. i feel like when i tell people my real age, my credidation goes down the drain. but have i ever actually lied about it? no. because that would be ridiculous.

#2 -  is it normal to have mistaken someone for the opposite sex?

...yeah...my husband and i love playing the game, 'chick or dude?', where we will see a person and try our best to determine whether they are a boy or a girl. sometimes, it's actually really difficult. i don't think you can help mistaking them for the opposite sex sometimes. it's their fault if you do, not yours.

#3 -  is it normal to go #2 in a public restroom?

when you gotta go, you gotta go. so, yes. it's normal. but does that mean i like doing it? &$!# no! let's just say that i think there should be a mandated law that all public places have music playing in the restrooms.

#4 -  is it normal to sit right next to a stranger at the movie theater?

no, no, no, no, no! i've never been one to have a personal space bubble, but i sure as heck don't want to be rubbing elbows/fighting for the arm rest with someone i don't even know! even when the theater is packed and i have to sit next to a stranger, i usually make the mr. sit next to them. it's just weird and uncomfortable to me.

#5 -  is it normal to lie about your weight?

i would have to say yes. i don't mind telling people my weight. i'll tell you right now that i weigh 155 whopping pounds. yep, that just happened. am i proud of that weight? not completely. but, i've gone my whole life being ashamed of that number and being self conscious that i'm bigger than all of my friends and i'm at the point right now where i work out 3-5 times a week, i watch my calorie intake, and i try not to be a lazy piece of lard. so, if that is the number that i get in result, then whatever. the scale does not define me. i say that it's normal though, because like i said, i haven't always been okay with my weight and have lied about it numerous times. and that's okay. sometimes being ashamed of something is what fuels the fire to fix it.

#6 -  is it normal to sing and dance in the car?

oooohhhh yeeeeeaaaah. i'd goes as far as to say that it's even healthy.

#7 -  is it normal to take self-pictures in public?

if you mean self-pictures of you and your husband since you are too poor to hire a photographer that will follow you around everywhere you go {wouldn't that be nice?}, then yes. it's normal. we don't mind asking someone to take it for us, but i think we have bad luck - almost every time a stranger takes it, it doesn't turn out! irritating. but if it's just you, please save yourself the embarrassment. you just look like a narcissist.

#8 -  is it normal for women to have a gun license? 

most defintely! i don't have one yet, but i hope to eventually. i know i would feel a lot safer going out on my own if i had a gun in my purse!

#9 -  is it normal to post pictures online of yourself in a bikini?

my view on this is kind of along the same lines as the taking pictures of yourself in public thing - it just looks narcissistic. to me it says, "hey, i think i have a really great body. do you wanna check it out too?" and let's be real - anyone that looks at you and likes it, probably has a mile-high stack of porn in their basement too. sick.

#10 -  is it normal to like the smell of gasoline?

sadly, yes. i say sadly because all of us that do like it have probably fried numerous amounts of brain cells. and that's sad. but i think i know more people that like the smell of it that people that don't, so i consider it to be very normal.

  1. Okay. I just seriously went into a laughing frenzy at work while reading your response about the mandated law for music in the restroom. My office building plays music in there and I've STILL heard someone! I think it should be mandated that it needs to be loud rap or something! :)

    Great post!

  2. Anytime I hear about someone lying about their age I always think about that friends episode where Monica ends up sleeping with a high schooler because they both lie about their age haha totally not cool!
