Is it just me, or does anyone else struggle with the question, “What are your interests?” It is not a matter of not knowing what I am interested in. It is a matter of knowing that you are not interested in what I am interested in.
If I put: I am interested in blogging. I suspect that someone would want to shout “duh! You are blogging right now. I can’t believe you just wasted my time by telling me something so obvious.”
If I put: collecting stamps, running errands, chasing butterflies, or waxing cars, I suspect someone might think I was weird.
If I put: organizing dumpsters, changing diapers, or reciting prepositions from memory, I suspect someone might think I was lying.
If I put: counting as high as I can, picking starry wildflowers, spelling bees, or jumping on a pogo stick, I suspect someone might think I need to get a life.
If I put: collecting seashells, driving racecars, or figuring out new palindromes (ex: kayak …racecar), I suspect someone would get bored.
Needless to say this is why all of my interest pages stay blank. What are your interests?
P.S. was-it-a-bar-or-a-bat-i-saw is the best palindrome I could come up with. Really…read it backwards : )
