Mundane Things

Logic, common sense and all those mature and sensible things don’t apply when it comes to the ordinary things that for some reason you just don’t like. What common, mundane stuff bugs you, disturbs you? You might think it is so silly you don’t even tell friends and family. Here is your chance to air out your feelings. Write about the ordinary things you just can’t deal with in an ordinary way.

Mine are:

Sharp Things Near Skin – I would not say I am afraid of needles, exactly. But, seeing something sharp like a needle, or a knife, near human skin makes me want to crawl out of my own skin. I can deal with the raw carcass of a turkey at Christmastime, pulling out the giblets, washing out the insides… I don’t know why puncturing the skin of something living makes me so squeamish.

Peanut Butter – I don’t like the way it fills your mouth with it’s smell. As if the thickness of the paste wasn’t enough it even has to take your breath away with the thick scent of it. I do like peanuts, unsalted. I will even have peanut butter cookies because the thick smell is diluted and does not bother me so much then.

Those are the only two I can think of right now. I’m sure there are more. We all have our little oddities after all.
