Is That Normal?

Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.

1. Is it normal to drive 5 mph over the speed limit?  10 mph?
For sure.  On the freeway, 10mph over the speed limit is totally normal.  Unless the speed limit is 55mph (like it is in the city – aka Detroit), going at least 15 over is normal.  And if you are are B and in a foreign country, speed limits don’t apply.  Which explains the tickets he gets sent in the mail.

2. Is it normal to pick a wedgie in public?
I suppose it depends where you are at.  A fancy function with your co-workers?  No.  A trip to WalMart in your pajamas?  Yep.

3. Is it normal to put makeup on even if you aren’t planning on leaving the house?
For me, no.  Trust me, W and L don’t care if I put on make-up or not.  And I wear it so rarely that when I do put some on, B wonders what I am up too.  LOL. But I think it is pretty normal to have a morning routine and “put your face on”.  Now, if you are cleaning all day, that’s weird.  But if you want to sit home and drink your face off wearing full make-up and watching a Real Housewives marathon, I’m down with that.

4. Is it normal to go skinny dipping?
For the people that think this is normal, I certainly hope you have your own pool and aren’t using hotel pools or whatever for this.  If you are on The Real World (or pretty much any reality show) this is normal.  If you aren’t, well, this isn’t a regular occurrence.

5. Is it normal to use the restroom while on the phone?
At first I was going to answer with a huge NO, but I guess it’s normal.  I mean, I wouldn’t get off the phone with B (if I really wanted to keep talking to him anyways) to use the bathroom.  I’d just go.  But if you do this a lot then I think you are weird.

6. Is it normal to check yourself out when passing by a window/mirror?
Hmm, if you are my husband, YES.   Ever since he started working out, it’s been a love fest(*) with the mirror.  I’m not sure if he does this in public, but at home, yes.

7. Is it normal to keep folded laundry in the basket instead of putting it away?
Hmm.  I bet a lot of people do this, but I don’t.  But only because I am so crazy and couldn’t stand to see it sit around.  But when I lived alone in my condo, I would leave clothes in the dryer, walk down 2 flights of stairs, grab what I needed, go back upstairs and leave the rest in the dryer.  No clutter and I didn’t have to fold it / put it away.  Those were the good old days.  This is sort of off the subject, but there was one time, a few years ago, that I asked B to do the laundry.  I had L with me and was gone for hours.  HOURS.  I came home and found the laundry, piled, not folded, in baskets in the laundry room.  WTF?  B said I had asked him to “do” the laundry not fold it and put it away. It’s a good thing that boy is cute.

8. Is it normal to turn & walk the opposite direction when seeing someone you know in a store?
Bahaha!  Yes!  I do this all the time.  Sometimes because I look like I have been hit by a bus and sometimes because I just don’t want to talk to the person.

9. Is it normal to drink coffee/soda from a straw?
This is normal if you ordered the drink at restaurant.  But if you are drinking coffee in a mug or soda out of a can with a straw then that’s not normal.

10. Is it normal to hover the toilet in a public restroom?
Yeah, this is normal, but I don’t do it unless I am somewhere super shady (and sometimes I am).   I watch those specials on 20-20 that show where the real nastiness is (hotel rooms anyone???).  But I can see why people do it.




(*) Well, maybe not a love fest. But he does get along well with the mirror.

    I know someone that will never drink anything with a straw. She claims that it gives you lines around your mouth. I don’t even want to think about what kind of sucking force she thinks is necessary to use to create permanent lines in your face.
