    I was a late bloomer. Never dated in high school. Didn't start drinking until after I graduated. Learned to ride a bike at 25. Never flew until I was 54.

    2/4 of those are the same for me. But which ones... 😏. Hint: I’ve only ever kissed one person and that person also introduced me to drinking. (Okay, I had had drinks before then but I never got drunk until I was 24).

    Sometimes it makes me feel weird and sometimes I don’t care. Other days it makes me feel like I grew up wrong, on hard days it makes me wonder if I missed out on experiences. Funny what embarrasses one and not another hey?

    So, I've mentioned several times that I suck at spelling and rely heavily on google to be able to type a comprehensible sentence.
    Thanks to @Thetwitchisback I can now spell the word definitely right usually on my first try! (this was one that really frustrated me, because I could type it 5 times and then have to google it in shame)

    Another sort of funny example is for years I wrote "dosen't", I wondered why auto predict on my phone didn't fill it in for me?
    Well duh, it's not a word! Smarter than me phone recognized this!

    One of my co workers gently pointed it out to me on all my hand written notes around the office. Made me laugh to realize, I just didn't see the reversed letters.

    Possibly a bit dyslexic? You could have a low grade version 🤷‍♀️...but i enjoy your post regardless and never notice the spelling

    I can not watch "Fly Away Home" and not be a sobbing mess before the end. Nor can I read "The Rainbow Bridge" without some sort of teary eyes. If I was an actor and I had to cry it would be no issue, I would just read that.

    I think both of you would be are fantastic role models.

    I'm really bad at geography because I've never cared about it and my schools never made me learn it. My mind was blown the other day because I always thought Colorado was up north somewhere when it's west. It's embarrassing but I don't think it matters unless the internet goes down during the apocalypse and all I have is a compass and my crap memory of where things are generally. 🤷🏻‍♀️.
    I should also note here that once, I got a little lost in my own small home town that I walked around in my whole life. Not lost, I really just went full blank and walked a whole different direction. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    I suppose Colorado is 'up north somewhere'.



    .... if you live in Bolivia.

    At 56 years old I don't know right from left. I have a 50/50 chance of getting it correct if I guess and I'm usually wrong. I always use my hands to figure it out (I know I'm righthanded so that side is the right).

    The other day my manager was showing me how to do fancy stuff in excel and told me to left click. Naturally I right clicked.

    When the dog and I were in doggie school, we were doing heeling exercises which involved wandering around the training area while the trainer called out changes in direction. She'd say "left turn!", I'd turn right and THE DOG WOULD TURN LEFT. It didn't escape her attention that my dog knew right from left better than I did. :D

    In highschool.. I saw a classmate run her hands across my boyfriends shoulder... so I cut a chunk of her box braids off.

    😔I am sorry! Awful, i regret it today... my karma is coming.

    I don't care for children.

    I've never heard the biological clock ticking LIKE THIS.

    Theoretically I want to have children so I'm not alone when I'm old.

    But when I see them in the makeup store grabbing brushes, jabbing them into the blushes, cracking them, then painting themselves and the cabinets with lipstick, I eschew all thoughts of wanting to become a parent because I don't believe in corporal punishment but wouldn't be able to help myself.

    I think it's important to note that this bad behavior is reflective of parenting and not specifically the child. I'm with you, I'm not a fan of hellions, however, I blame the parents for their behaviors.

    Exactly!!! Just don't be the parent who's afraid of the NO word and you'll be fine.

    Plus kids aren't guaranteed to take care of or visit you when you're old.
