“Ok, I’m ready,” Kevin told me.

He clapped his hands together in front of him, and then gave me a thumbs up with each. I laughed.

The joke: I make that move all the time. I also (apparently) wiggle my head a lot when I talk.

When you’re single, there is no one around to point out these odd bits of behavior. Now, I have a keen observer, a mirror for my idiosyncrasies, I feel more self-conscious, and I find myself changing my ways.

He’s upset. He loves all my weirdo activities — even my sound effects and noises. The little quirks that make me who I am are part of who he fell in love with. He promises to stop pointing them out, but he can’t help but laugh at some of them. (Yeah, I’m pretty odd.)

For some odd reason, I can’t think of a single funny or odd thing he does. He talks out loud to himself, but so do I. And I think his facial expressions are funny, but they’re always intended to be — he likes to bug me and provoke reaction.

I guess I’ll just have to keep being weird. apparently, it’s a hit.  *claps hands* *thumbs up*

Do you have any weird things you do that people point out?
