I have been tagged for the first time ever so I thought I'd respond.

Here are the rules:

1. Link the person who tagged you...Callie
2. Post these rules.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers

1. Condiments.
Yuck. I can't stand them. They make my stomach turn. In fact, when I am pregnant ketchup and mustard must be kept far away from me. Heaven help the person who leaves a ketchup-covered plate in the sink.

2. Salad Dressing.
Closely related to condiments. Also grosses me out. I will eat it when I have no other alternative (Olive Garden), but I really don't like it. If I can have a nice lemon wedge to squirt on my croutons . . . yum.

3. Bananas.
Also an offensive food. In 6th grade I had an unfortunate incident that cemented my dislike for the fruit. I am not the only one that was traumatized by the incident. My good friend Mish also hates bananas and was involved in the same banana-related experience in 6th grade. Maybe I am justified in my revulsion.

4. Feet.
Not a big fan. Once my children start walking, those cute little piggies are not very appealing to me. I don't kiss injured feet. That is Bill's domain.

5. Color Conformity.
I like to arrange things in rainbow order (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple . . .) Things seem more pleasant to me when rainbows are involved.

6. Rules.
I never break them. If it's a rule, I feel compelled to comply. I don't bring more than 10 items in the express line, I obey traffic signals and I always, always do what the teacher says. I'll never be a rebel.

As a rule follower, I must tag six people. So I choose JoEllen, Lauren, Cecily, Meta, Maren and Hilary

I wish I could tie something to my disliking bananas! but I just don't like them for the basic fact that they repulse me.

hiya cheryl!--
didn't know you had a blog! yay!
(btw - the only reason i was bitching in that last post was because i don't think the mistaken identity has anything to do with my 'fantastic' (cough, cough) skin...more to do with my 'less than stellar' wardrobe! hehe...oh well!)
best to the kids and bill!

Ok. So now I have to figure out how to link in my blog. What have you done to me? Do you have any idea how this will hang over my head until I have Elaine or Jeremy do it for me? Sigh. I wish I hated condiments and salad dressing. Then I could be skinny, too.
