Things I Might Never Tell You Otherwise

1. I tend to move through the blogs I read regularly in alphabetical order. This means that Dykes to Watch Out For follows Dawn Eden in my daily cycle, and those odd companions are forever twinned in my mind.

2. Every night, I brush my teeth, wash my face, and murmur, "Well, that's something," at my reflection in the mirror.

3. Before I board a plane, I pull out a strand of hair to leave behind. I feel better knowing some piece of me is still on the ground.

4. I have to cross my fingers before I can fall asleep.

5. I love the smell of dirt, basements, and motor oil.

Hmmm...I like the idea about leaving a bit of you on the ground - kind of like swimming with your tiptoes still on te floor of the pool.

That is a nice idea, part of you still on the ground.

Memo to self: try # 4 (as nothing else has ever worked).

I too am a fan of the smell of dirt. And I laughed at "Well that's something", because that sounds like me too.
