10 Ways I'm A Toddler

February 11, 2014

1. I only like peach Greek yogurt. It is time to accept this, and move on. Every time I go to the grocery store, I stand for a good five minutes staring at all those 10 for $10 yogurt deals. I put 8 peach yogurts in my cart. And then I say Autumn, you should really branch out. Surely after 8 peach yogurts you won't want any more peach! 

But no. I always want more peach. Only peach. Hence why the cherry and pomegranate flavors I convinced myself to try are now expired and just sitting, forgotten, under 10 new peach yogurts. 

2. I love trying new restaurants but rarely new dishes. Once I have one thing at a restaurant  I will order that same exact dish every single time. I am 23 years old, and have never changed my order at Subway. Not once. 

3. I do not like traditions changing. If we watched a movie on Christmas Eve when I was 8, we better watch the same movie on Christmas Eve when I'm 28, damn it. 

4. I think car washes are the happiest place on Earth. Especially when it's Easter time and they switch to pastel colored soap! 

5. I just ate two donuts in a row because I have no self control. 

6. I will sleep as late as possible, every single day. 

7. I think mirrors are really scary at night, and would never use them as decorative pieces. I am 120% convinced every time that a face will pop out. 

8. I feel very strongly that previews for exorcism movies should not be shown on TV. If you want to watch that creepy shit, you little wierdo, you can go find the movie yourself. but I do not need that bad juju (mojo? vibe?) in my living room. Oh hell no. 

9. I ate two donuts, but now I really want Jimmy John's. 

10. I still wish I had Valentine's parties with little valentines you put in bags, even for kids you don't like. Because either way, those were the shit.

  1. I am the perfect combination between child and grandma -- I do believe.

  2. 11. You ate two donuts because your pseudobig spiritguide made you because her husband has deprived their apartment of donuts.

  3. I don't actually like yogurt much, but peach is definitely superior to all other yogurts.

  4. I am right there with you about not having self control, I swear I day dream about foods that I know I shouldn't be eating. And when I have a chip, I just want to devour the entire bag...including the crumbs. And scary commercials are not my thing, I'm 23 and still HAVE to watch the Disney channel before bed after watching a scary movie.

  5. I can absolutely relate to this list. I get teased so often because I'm trapped somewhere between being a toddler and an old lady.. and I am completely ok with that!

  6. I walked around the Valentines aisle for quite a while the other day before my boyfriend convinced me that I had no use for all the little Valentine's, it was very sad. I kind of wish it wouldn't be weird if I gave them out at work...

  7. #2 and #7...YES. In fact I have never ordered but one thing at Subway as well - the meatball sub. I think I changed my bread up once but that was about it.

  8. #1 I only eat vanilla yogurt. Nothing. else.
    #2 I always, always order the same thing at restaurants. Any time I try to branch out from that ONE thing at that ONE restaurant, I get really disappointed. Eventually, bf just told me to quit trying and accept that I will always have one favorite at each restaurant. Glad to know I'm not the only one!
    #3 My grandmother was put in the hospital on Christmas Eve (which is also my bday) many moons ago. After visiting her, my parents decided it was a good idea to go to a movie to cheer us up. It became tradition. One year, my dad and brother picked a movie I did NOT want to see at all. I told them it was no big deal, so they went without me. I hid in my room and cried. Traditions, man.

  9. I totally miss elementary VDay parties!!

  10. I believe this is why I work so well with children. I'm secretly a kid at heart. I throw some crazy mad temper tantrums.

  11. I ALWAYS want Jimmy Johns! And I just learned they deliver to my apartment for less than $1 and I just don't know why I've been missing this opportunity for YEARS. Life changing.

  12. I always somehow forget that I don't like yogurt at all. There's just something about that big pretty wall of containers, each bearing a delicious-sounding flavor name... Every few months I end up buying two or three, and then either a) they sit in my fridge until they expire because I never think "Oh, yogurt sounds good!" when I open the fridge, or b) I open one when I get home, take about two bites and remember that I just can't stomach it.

    I suspect some kind of subliminal messaging brainwashing by the yogurt companies.

    Happy Wednesday!

  14. ahh I hate commercials for scary movies - I seriously have to change the channel. awful. and I have a weird fear of car washes. last time I went through one, I felt weirdly anxious and claustrophobic ha.

  15. I relate to this list so much. I'm a cross between my 7 year old daughter and my mother. More often my daughter though...

  16. We're the same person. Scary movies...helllllllno. Mirrors, nope and nope! My jimmy johns order hasn't changed since I started going there. The list could go on.
