Challenge #3–A fill in the blank challenge: Whenever I ________, I ________.
Whenever I brush my teeth, I use hot water. I never realized this was weird until I got married–my husband uses cold water. It had never crossed my mind to use cold water. He asked why I use hot water, and after a bit of soul searching I realized why. Growing up, I usually brushed my teeth in the basement bathroom of our house. It took a looooooong time for the hot water to get to the faucet. Thus, at some point I’d made the subconscious decision to turn the water to hot while brushing my teeth so that the water would be warm by the time I washed my face.
Whenever I stop at a stoplight, I try to be the first one out of the intersection when the light turns green again. I drive a stick shift, and when I first started to learn stick I struggled. I killed the car all the time. Thus, I became very self-conscious of the time it took for me to get from stop to go. So I went into drag racing mode and have been there ever since.
Whenever I go for walks, I inwardly test myself on the names of almost every plant I see. After years of working in garden retail, I can’t help myself. When I see a plant I like that I’ve never seen before, I have half a mind to go knock on the door to ask what it is. I don’t though.
Whenever I think about hot chocolate, I want some. It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside. I love it always.
