Six Six Six

I am a compulsive air guitarist. I even have different finger/wrist positions depending on the "guitar" I am playing.

I am an obsessive "spoonerist". I will spooner every sentence, every song lyric and every slogan. It has led to some unfortunate situations. Like when I once spoonered the word "popcorn" at the dinner table....

At one point in my life, I would "resolve" *every* sound - a doorbell, the drone of a car engine, a birdcall - into a chord. I thought this was weird but then I met a person who said he often sang harmony to *every* sound he heard. Needless to say, we became the best of friends and band-mates.

Second year at college, I spent an entire semester in one pair of jeans. I mean the ENTIRE semester. Day and night. Parties, concerts, festivals, trips and classes. Did I mention that this was also the semester when bathing was largely out of fashion?

I cried like a baby the day George Harrison died.

I have a mortal fear of lizards. I can fling myself into a pit full of roaches, furry rats AND fuzzy spiders, but I cannot *stand* even a picture of a lizard.

Scout, happy?

Oh! km - we know you are hiding the truly weird things about you somewhere. :)

Much enjoyed km. Nice window to your living room, this. However, I am also very glad about not having met you when you wore those jeans. Even if I must have been a crawling lilvun then.

Mr Air Guitarist Sir, can we please have the rest of the "popcorn" story? Something tells me that we have some good laughs lurking in there :-)

Neha, WYSIWYG :)

Tom Joad: the story ends with suppressed giggles, angry stares, choked windpipes and red faces.

Dhiraj: Excellent idea. I think there's no such thing as an Unfortunate Spoonerism, only an Ill-timed One. But yeah, would love to do a post on spoonerisms.

Scout: You are close, but that's not the spoonerism I came up with. Take it one step beyond. It was *that* bad.

PH, TR, K: always glad to see the Smilyes!

Yes, Scout's try had me thinking again.

Now seeing your reply, glad we are on the same wavelength. :)
