Jinxed Genes


I humbly agree that I am a narcissist, can’t help it, I just
love talking about myself 😛 Be it kitchen blunders, general disasters or my
smarty pants siblings, I can go on and on. 

Since this is the start of #WriteFestival and the theme is Seven, I
thought why not introduce myself in as normal way as possible.
1) God must have really jinxed my genes. Who gets a
motion sickness while watching 3D movie? I mean what the heck!!! I have watched
Avatar and Harry Potter with glasses over my forehead and have to buy a DVD of
every fricking 3D movie. Seriously, technology repels. The last time I tried
braving through a 3D movie, my head started spinning right round right round.

2)  I might have mentioned this before too; I can’t
see overturned footwear. Gives me Heebie-Jeebies. I feel as if sandpaper is brushed
against my skin. This gets worse when I have to visit a friend, for I always
find myself at their doorstep, arranging their shoes. Imagine if I visit a
temple, I am pretty sure people will run behind me assuming me as a “chappal
chor” 😛 Not that I am any sort of cleanliness freak who keeps all things in
place. I throw my shoes around as soon as I get into the house, but they are
never… never facing downwards. 😛

3) I have a crazy temper. Do you know Medusa? The
cursed chthonic 
monster with snakes in place of hair. (The Greek Gods used to
give some fancy curses huh!!!) Well, if I lose my temper, you can actually see
those snakes start hissing and crawling over my head. The funny thing is when
my husband (then boyfriend) came to visit my dad for the first time, to ask my
hand in marriage, my dad actually asked him in these exact words, “Son, I hope
you know what you are getting into !!! ”. 😛

4) Remember the scene when Mr Bean goes all crazy
in a perfume store 
(can’t believe I am comparing myself to that), I can
tolerate my extremely stinking pair of socks but not the smell of perfume or
any kind of fruity smell. Walking into a mall where the entrance starts with
fragrance shops is like running a hurdle race – I take a deep breath and dash
across the place in as graceful and ladylike manner as possible. 😛

5) A lot of people can sleep only in complete
silence. I am no different. Once I had to take out the batteries from the clock
because of ticking sound. And I always sleep with two pillows. The second one
goes over my head. 😛

6)   My words are stronger and louder than my voice. Which is sometimes scary, for others mostly 😛

7)  And last of all, I am crazy, totally insane,
takes me hell of an effort to keep a straight face and talk like a “professional”
in my client office, but I love every bit of my “Mantally the sick” life 😛
So how about sharing one of your weird characteristics?

  2. Funny! Read all points with a smile on my face. I think we all have our set of weirdness. I can't see footwear turned downward too.

    I don't mind if somebody's using perfume(perfume is better than body odour), only condition is that they should use it in limit. Unfortunately, most people use it liberally. Sometimes I wonder if they pour the entire bottle at once over them. I can't stand THAT. 😀

  3. LOL on the first one. And even i am miniature version of Medusa! And my Dad also used to comment like that once in a while.

    A wonderful start!!

  4. What, seriously 3D movies give you motion-sickness! I am hearing this for the first time. Loved your quirks and don't we all have our own set as well!

    Looking forward to reading more of the Sevens.

    Happy to visit your blog for the first time, Rajalakshmi.

    Joy always,
    Susan

  5. I was smiling and laughing as I read about your jinxed genes. I have OCD for keeping a clean home despite tiredness or a headache or paucity of time. I can rest peacefully only after seeing a neat and clean home.
    As for perfumes, well I cant stand them either coz I am allergic to strong smells/fragrances! 😀
