Things I Like About Me

Posted on February 24, 2010

I thought I'd start this blog with a quick list of things I like about myself. So, here goes:

1) I am an amazing wedding dancer. I feel the music and release myself to the dance. It's breathtaking. By that, I mean I run out of breath.

2) I can whistle and hum at the same time. It sounds like a spaceship.

3) I am an amazing Cranium player. People fight to have me as their partner. In fact, once partners are chosen, the game is pretty much over and no fun for anyone.

4) I have never misused the word "solipsism," mainly because I don't know what it means and have always avoided using the word "solipsism."

5) I understand the process of cheese making on a fundamental level.

6) I have never been promiscuous. Despite attempts.

7) When I go to the gym, I make other people feel better about their bodies.

8) I am good at finding lost items. Like one time, my wife lost her keys, and I said, "Did you look in the bowl by the door?" And, she looked and said that they weren't there, and I said, "That's because you're not as good at finding things as me." So, I told her to look in the microwave, and there were her keys. Right where I left them.

9) I am modest to the point of self-loathing.

10) Dogs and 3-year-olds love me, because they know I will play with abandon, ignoring any safety concerns. (Parents do not like me.)

11) I am an inventive eater. Try this: Dip cinnamon pita chips into rice pudding. You're welcome.

12) My chest hair is shaped like a phoenix rising from my bellybutton.
