Hmm, quirks. I have a few.
If I laugh too long and hard at something, I will eventually start crying. Not just ‘crying with laughter’ but full blown sobbing, shaking, tears, and the ugly cry face. Then I get really sleepy and need to go have a nap.
I hate being woken up in the morning, but I can’t stand Mr. Roux sleeping more than 1/2 an hour longer than me. Even if he got home late the night before, once I’ve been up for half an hour I need to go wake him up or have a cuddle in bed.
I cannot cook meals in quantities for 2 people, even though there is only 2 of us to cook for. I always cook for 4-6 people, and have a freezer full of frozen home cooked meals.
If I get stressed out, I go grocery shopping and buy pasta. We have a ‘pasta cupboard’ and probably about 10kg (20lbs) of dried pasta in different varieties.
Mr Roux’s quirks
He must sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door.
…I think thats it for him, lol I’m the weird one.
Although our ‘couple quirk’ Is probably our negotiation skills. We use far distant future things and random things to negotiate. eg.
Me- ‘Honey can we get chickens for the back yard?’
Mr. Roux- ‘only if when we buy a house we can get a dog and call it Ewok’
Me- ‘can I give Ewok a nickname like ‘precious puppyface?’
Mr. Roux- ‘As long as I can name one of the chickens Lunch.’
Me- ‘ok, deal’.
This conversation actually took place last week.
