Once I got started, I couldn’t stop. Here are some more soul-searching, earth-shattering, self-revealing, emotion-stirring, sure-to-cause-controversy things that begin with asterisks:
*There are certain Spanish words that are very fun to yell at the top of your lungs at totally random times for no reason whatsoever. Like “recuerdo” for example. Try it: “RECUERDO!!!!” It’s very therapeutic.
*Sometimes, instead of saying “You’re welcome” when somebody thanks me, I like to say “Lawrence.” You know – you’re welcome…welcome…welks…Lawrence Welks…Lawrence.
*I think freckles are great.
*I take great comfort in having at least one really messy space. Like a junk drawer or a closet. Because I’m a grown-up now, it’s all mine and I can be messy if I want to.
*I used to hate exclamation points but they’ve been slowly growing on me. There’s a time and a place for everything, I guess.
*I crave silence almost as much as I crave chocolate.
*I wonder why some people say “I could care less” when what they mean is “I couldn’t care less.” “I could care less” means that they care. If they don’t understand the difference, they should just say “I don’t care.”
