So, do you remember that episode of Sex in the City where Carrie talks about “secret single behaviors”? Basically, it was about the odd things singles do when they’re enjoying some time alone and no one else is looking… Her’s was eating saltine crackers with grape jelly and reading fashion magazines while standing up in her kitchen. I think Charlotte’s involved staring at her pores in a magnifying mirror and Miranda’s was slathering on hand lotion and wearing weird gloves while watching the shopping channel.
It struck me today as I was cooking myself some dinner that I too have some secret single behaviors that others might consider odd:
- For one, I have been known to put coconut oil in my hair and dead sea mud on my face then go around the house doing chores like unloading the dishwasher or folding a load of laundry while I wait for it to dry.
- I have entire conversations with my dogs about how their days went (don’t judge me!)…. (P.S. I can’t believe I just admitted to that.)
- And, I have weird eating habits…
Today as I was cooking myself some chicken soup for dinner, I decided to have the last bit of wine left over from my dinner with my friend Caitlin last night. I then went through my pantry and decided to accompany this wine with a can of hearts of palm. I munched and drank as I cooked and listened to Pandora. It was tasty and held me over until 8pm when the soup was finally ready to eat.
Weird? Maybe. Secret? Not so much anymore. 😉
