I am weird because….

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Another day! Another post!

 This one inspired by Nabanitas post that had me chuckling.
 I am very optimistic that this isn’t the last of, ‘I am weird because’ revelations and I have a feeling I shall be topping this list. Frequently.
Here goes this one though!
I -Weird -Sirimiri
* I have borderline OCD, which means I am always tempted to straighten frames hung askew, or even a wee bit off, smoothen bed sheets or tablecloths, align furniture and footwear…you get the picture right? And all this in other peoples homes, hotel rooms and restaurants. And I have done it too.
* I don’t drive. I have lost hope I ever will.
* I hate anyone sitting on my bed once I’ve made it.
* I bitch and moan to Mum about my siblings, and the moment she agrees with something against them a fire-breathing dragon has nothing on me! Mum has wisely learnt to just listen. Because she is not weird.
* When I hang my clothes out to dry they have to be in ascending order, with the corners meeting.
* I still ask people their star signs, and judge them accordingly in my mind.
* I dislike drinking water from a glass, I have to swig it from the bottle to quench my thirst.
* I could eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between too. Add cookies to that and I am in heaven. Except Chocolate ice cream.
* Papaya is my most favourite fruit. Mangoes are just about okay.
* When I am angry I turn even more polite and soft spoken. The angrier I am the more soft spoken I get. If my whisper is illegible, you should be running. Fast.
* I dislike people asking to use my hairbrush, towels etc. If I am forced to share, I never use them again.
* When I am really pissed with The Husband I use endearments to address him. Through gritted teeth.
* I abhor people mispronouncing or abbreviating my name.
* I have no idea how this happens, but I have this habit of getting locked up in bathrooms.
* I still gawk when a see a woman smoking.
* I love watching movies alone.
* I enjoy people watching, and sometimes get so engrossed in doing so that I may come across as a crazy stalker.
* I file away quirks I see in people, and they turn up as a character in some story.

    Happy to know the normal side of u Mayuri
    Be like this and never change even a bit of it…God bless dear!

  2. while reading the article one song was rotating in my mind “ma aisa kyu hu, ma aisa kyu hu”. Interest & different topic. And many people can relate themselves to it. #NISSATalks

    1. Hahaha, Silja:) Thanks!

  3. This was quite something Mayuri! I have all the cues now and know what I should expect when I meet you 🙂 #BloggerBabes #OpenNTalk

    1. There is a lot more weirdness where these came from, Akshata:)))))

  4. Haha..this was a fun read and I know since last 2 years but many of these facts we’re unknown to me except the OCD one. I will keep all these in mind next time I meet you. 😉
    Oh! Also didnt know you didn’t like name abbreviations, M? *Hides*

  5. beautiful thought writing

  6. This was so hilarious. You are really weird, Mayuri though I am really fond of you! 😛

    And you are never coming home. Gosh, you will only just keep correcting things. 😉

  7. haha… That is a good read Mayuri. I can relate to few points such as no one on the bed after it is done, drinking water from a bottle and the reaction for smoking women 😛

  8. Haha, I related to many dear because I am equally weird especially on the mango point and yes papayas are my fav too.

  9. hahaha, this one was such a different post and I loved every word I read. even I hate anyone who messes up my bed once it’s made.

    LoL I’m no different- love to ask star signs and cant drive 🙁
    #OpenNtalk #BlogAMile

  11. Oh this was fun. You get locked up on loos? There’s a whole story there I suspect. I like papayas too but trumping mangoes – that’s a bit much.
    PS: I’m a Capricorn.

  12. The title should’ve been ‘I’m normal because…’ 🙂
    What’s life without a few quirks? This was a fun read and I loved knowing these things about you, M. I like papaya too and I would never ever stand in front of you when you’re speaking softly to me! Lol.
    #OpenNTalk #BloggerBabes

    1. Lol! Thanks for reading, Varsha:)

  13. This was totally fun Mayuri! Gosh your quirks are pretty similar to mine, except maybe the icecream thing, I have tooth sensitivity, I just stick to all other kinds of desserts. I am not a papaya fan. I drive my family crazy with my OCD over keeping things just the way I want. Laundry OCD, ditto! I am an Aquarian….does that work for you? Love your weirdness!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it, Kala. We are both Air Signs, my favourite people!:))

  14. Interesting n wacky side of yours….happy that you have shared it without inhibitions…I too don’t share my comb n towel and if by chance, someone catches hold of it, I gift it to them. 😛
    #BlogAMile #OpenNTalk

  15. So much of “My Things” you have shared. Loved it anyway and trust me you are not weird.
    Love #BloggerBabes #OpenNTalk

  16. 🙂 this is a fun read! Loved to know many things about you. And trust me these are quite normal, no weird at all. Im telling because I get some common thing and I claim myself as a normal human being 🙂 🙂 🙂

  17. I love coz you’re super weird and cutie. We have few things in common like ice cream but it goes with me for anything sweet. I have OCD too to keep everything clean around especially kitchen, my husband has OCD for almost everything. I tend to keep clothes in ascending order to joining the corners :p

  18. Thank God now I know I am also normal with a few OCDs myself too. A few of them from.your list hit the nail on the head.#NISSATalks

  19. Yes, some of your actions are weird indeed… ha! ha! But I guess there is a bit of your list and obviously a lot more in each of us that isn’t the norm. After all, what is life if it is always following rules. Moreover, the truth is that what is normal today is anyway destined to be beyond-the-norm in the future if it wasn’t completely insane in the past.

  20. I think all of us exhibit some sort of weirdness.
    Completely relate to your post:)


  21. This post had me grinning from the word go.
    We all have our idiosyncracies, and they are what make us unique.

    Bask in the glory of your weirdness, I’d say. I know I do!

  22. Happy to know more about you Mayuri. I always thought I am weird in many ways but on second thoughts that makes us unique. So happy to be weird and be special 🙂 #CrossBorderSisters #OpenNTalk

  23. It was super fun to know you in depth. I too love ice cream and can have anytime. #jamss2018 #OpenNTalk
