Wednesday Weirdness #14

Wednesday Weirdness has a mixed bag of fun questions for discussion this week. If you want to check out this weirdness then click HERE.

Is there anything hanging from your vehicle's rear view mirror?
Absolutely nothing. Maybe I am boring, but I find things that dangle from the mirror to be really distracting. Perhaps I would get used to them if I left them there long enough. Yeah, perhaps, but they bug me so much that I just have to take them down.

2. When you go into the bathroom, do you ever check behind the shower curtain? You know, to make sure no one is miraculously hiding back there.
I don't for two reasons. First is that I have never really thought about people hiding there, waiting to get me, and secondly is that I don't have a shower curtain at home, only a sliding glass door. However, it doesn't bother me when I stay in hotels, etc that do have shower curtains. I remember that things like that used to freak my sister out and she always had to check the wardrobe and under the bed before she could sleep at night. I don't know whether she still does.

3. At what age did your mom or dad give you "the talk" about sex?
I don't recall ever getting "the talk" from my parents. It was covered at high school in about year 9, and other than that I think most of my sex education came from play ground discussion, magazines such as Playboy & Penthouse, and eventually experimentation. I do like that 'hands-on' learning.

If you could add anything at all to an airplane to make trips more interesting, what would it be and why?
I have travelled quite a bit by plane and I always have problems with a lack of leg room. Because I am over 6 foot tall I find that my knees are pressed against the seat in front and I can never stretch out or even get my legs into a comfortable position. So I would like seats that are more comfortable with extra leg room for us tall folk. Maybe then I would arrive at my destination feeling fresher from a bit more sleep and without a sore back and cramped legs.

5. What is one thing you and your significant other can never seem to agree on?
Sex. I want it, she doesn't and I don't get to win this one very often.

6. Have you ever walked in on someone else having sex? How did you and the people involved react?
I don't think I ever have. I did walk in on my parents once when they were just having 'a kiss and a cuddle' in bed and didn't think too much of it at the time, but later on I realise that they may have been just about to get 'down to it', or had just finished. Either way, the thought of one's parents having sex is not something that should be considered for too long, or in too much detail. And I'll leave it there.

Everyone hears discussions that they consider boring. What is one topic that can put you to sleep quicker than any other?
New Mums talking about their 'new bundles of joy'.
I have been guilty of it when I was a new Dad but I am sure that I didn't drone on about nappy rash, or the contents of a nappy, or the consistency of every bowel movement. It seems that just lately, every friend who has a new baby wants to provide me with all the details of every minute of the darling's life. Do I look that interested, cos I'm not!!
(apologies to any new Mums who might read this. I'm sure you and your baby are the exception)

#5, just sucks. I had a boyfriend like that actually once upon a time ago. He was fine to go without and me, not so much, at all.

I can relate on 7. I don't mind hearing baby talk and I like some of it but when they go on hours about drooling, the cutest little wave, diaper business, burping, giggling and every little detail... it gets a little maddening.

Our #7 answers are along the same lines - nothing puts me out like OPK (other people's kids)!

Happy WW!

MG- Can't beat on-the-job training.

AR & Bunny- Too true. A little is OK, but spare us every intimate detail.
