Eccentricities, Anyone?

Cousin It : We all have that one eccentric relative who always says and does the strangest things. In your family, who’s that person, and what is it that earned him/her that reputation?

Word Magic

Of eccentricities there is no shortage,

Neither in me nor in others at any stage.

Be it the way I do not sleep till two at night,

Blogging, mailing, reading –  doing all things light

Be it my son who games everything in sight

My daughter “Fangirling” with all her might

Or my hubby working late, late into the night!

But eccentricities galore, I feel are what makes me “Me”

Others may indeed look strange, but friend, so are you and me!

Be yourself
Be yourself

    so how many hrs do u sleep? I also had the habit of sitting on net late night but now all stopped. latest by 10.30-11 on bed. I dont why they put this kind of prompt, how can we write special about any one relative?

      I sleep for 4-5 hours a day… And yes, I thought calling oneself eccentric was preferable to calling other relatives thus !! Hence this take.. what say?

        I also said that and agree with you. what is your speciality as Dr.? I understood good sleep is a must, but 1/2 times interrupts and again sleep. I wish a sound sleep from 10.30 to 5.30, but can’t. How many hrs sleep is good for health after 50.

    Aruna is eccentric
    Just like you and me
    She says it doesn’t matter
    It’s how we’re meant to be!

      Thanks a ton….. Its our eccentricities that set us apart from each other.. an “assembly line” of clones would have been very boring, what say ??

    I’m going to take this personally and say thank you!

        I agree! It’s where we get to know each other just a little bit more and I like that.

    You are indeed beautiful the way you are! High time you accepted this reality and stop considering it an eccentricity.
