10 Thing You Don’t Know About Me

1.When someone asks me what I want to drink, and I say Diet Coke or Coke Zero, and they ask me “Is Pepsi okay?” I just stop and think, no, no, no. If Pepsi was okay, I would have ordered it. I smile and politely ask, “Do you have Diet Dr. Pepper?” If they don’t, peace out and I’m over the restaurant. Sorry Pepsi but I’ve based dinner decisions on whether or not Diet Coke is there. 

2. Everything tastes better to me through a straw. I don’t like feeling liquids taking the enamel off my teeth. All things include: alcohol, water, pop (as they say in Kansas), coffee, etc.

3. I always brace myself to answer to any name that isn’t Alissa but has some similarities because no one says it correctly. I prepare for it when I can see them analyzing the letters trying figure out what they are supposed to sound like. 

4. I didn’t love spice as a kid or teen but since college I have been obsessed with everything spicy. Spicy chips, spicy pickles, spicy salsa, spicy okra, anything spicy.

5. When it comes to my closet I know everything. I know where every item is. I know what it is next to. I know where I got it. I know when I got it. I’m obsessive about it. 

6. I hate tomatoes on sandwiches, salads, burgers, anything that isn’t Italian and meant to be in a food and masked by other flavors. If I order a sandwich without tomato but it still has tomato on it, I hate to take it off. No problem, right? No. The sandwich NEVER TASTES THE SAME WHEN YOU HAVE TO REARRANGE THE CONTENTS. People argue with me constantly about this but my taste buds and I know you are lying.

7. I loveeee oatmeal creme pies. I had forgotten about them since I was a kid and my grandma had them. This last fall I rediscovered this and now I have to actually ration them and hide them from myself. 

8. I’m never going to be a true style blogger because my legs don’t have a four inch gap in my Hunters. I think it’s somehow a subtle shame when you seem someone wearing them and there isn’t a foot gap between the boot lining and twig of a leg. If you are that thin, great, you will probably be a much bigger blogger than I which wouldn’t take that much.

9. I’ve been asked to fish-sit twice and every time the fish have died on me while I was watching them. Please, for the love of everything, don’t ask me to watch your fish for you. 

10. I don’t care for pie. I like the filling. I hate the crust. I realized this makes me un-American and thus have tried to love it. I can’t. I’m sorry. I love everything else that is bad for me  and sugary though so does that count?
