#MicroblogMondays 45 – Quirks & Oddities

We can all lay claim to some unusual, harmless things about our physical selves – little quirks and oddities that when combined with the rest of who we are make us unique. I certainly have them – and I don’t know about you, but I rather enjoy finding out that some of them actually have names! So as a bit of #MicroblogMondays trivia and silliness, I thought I’d share three of the oddball things that make me ME, and invite you to do the same (if you dare!).

Morton’s Toe

Yes, my second toe is longer than any of the others, including my big toe. No, I am NOT going to post a picture (though there actually are a couple of them lurking in the depths of my Flickr account), because I really, strongly dislike pictures of anyone’s bare feet, even my own! (Note to self: Add “photos of bare feet” to the growing list of things that make me squeamish.)


You can’t tell these days, thanks to the miracles of modern dentistry, but my natural state is to have a fairly large gap between my two front teeth. This one I will share, as the photo proof is really rather adorable if I do say so myself! (Can you tell that my mom was a hairdresser?!)

Gustatory Rhinorrhea

File this one under “Most Annoying Quirk Ever” – because while there may be variation in the degree of sniffliness that ensues, my nose WILL run no matter what I eat, when I eat, or how much I eat. How bizarre.

So there you go – my own little catalogue of quirks and oddities. Consider yourself enlightened!

Now it’s your turn.

What quirks & oddities make you unique?
Please share!
