a secret about me.

shhhhh....
this is a secret.

i clap...
alot...
without meaning to, without planning to...
i just clap.

it's like i suddenly get this
spontaneous
uncontrollable
burst
of energy
and i have to clap
to release it...

usually it's a very fast 4 beat clap,
hopefully, when no one is looking.

it started about ten years ago...
no one except my husband knows...
i think my kids suspect
but i'm not sure.

is that weird?
like, really weird?
cause if it is, it's not actually true.

but heh...
it might be true.

oh i love this about you. an adorable quirky habit...

(i have been known to clap when something is crazy funny, usually on tv. jon always looks at me like "who are you?")

i don't think it's weird at all. i think it means you have a lot of energy and passion and it just needs to be expressed. i think it gives you even more personality than you already had.

so i'm going with not weird, not weird at all ;-)

Not weird at all. Everyone has a quirk. I count things...everything. It is very calming.

ok...when you described it as a 4 beat clap, i had to try it out myself. actually, it was quite fun. it made me laugh to myself.

you're too cute. ;)

Really? That's kinda neat. Maybe you have high levels of energy in you that need to kinetically be released.
