Do you ever wonder how you have become the person you are? I think of my parents and most certainly I am more like my father than my mother in these aspects:

Dad:

Is a loner
Makes friends easily but really only cares about himself
Is a slow eater
Always on the go

Mom:

Doesn't "friend" herself out very much but does much for her family
Is a picky eater
Smacks when she eats
Is afraid to take chances

And I am like neither in these aspects:

They don't drink
They like to talk on the phone
Eat their steaks well done

I am stubborn, selfish, a dog person, slow eater, a napper, a drinker, a sipper, a guzzler, a funneler. I think of ways to change the world, I dream in color, I think of running away when I have a bad day, can only commit 5 years to a relationship and then I'm ready to move on. I think cleanliness is close to godliness and that a clean, neat, straight home is an absolute reflection on the woman only, because men are not expected to clean base boards or dust blinds. I can go days without human contact or turning on the TV but I can't go days without my evening cocktail. I love to cook laborious meals, I rarely give out compliments, seeing elderly people in public struggling to open a door or trying to eat a meal without spilling their food from trembling upsets me beyond belief. I believe red fingernail polish and red lipstick will never be anything less than classic and always in style. I love flowers, front porches, rocking chairs and fried chicken and I would never wear white shoes before Easter or after Labor Day.

Where does all of my quirkiness come from?

We are who we are... a bit of Mom... a bit of Dad... and a great bit of what happens to us each and everyday and how we respond to the people who come and go throughout our lives...

I like this post...

5 YEARS??? Hell, we should hook up. I can go about 5 days.

I love it...I'm with you on the 5 year thing. Seems to be my cutoff point as well.
