Things You've Never Done That Others May Find a Little Weird

Other

Just a fun post really about things you've never done that others may find weird or strange.

My main ones are -

I've never been into a Greggs.

I've never watched a single episode of Britain's Got Talent, X Factor, Love Island or Gogglebox.

I have never skyped or zoomed, nor do I have Twitter or Instagram, does that count? I did have fb twice but deleted twice as it wasn't good for my blood pressure, so much trolling and swearing!

blacklabrador That's not weird, I've never had a Subway and had my first kabab 5 years ago. No fb, Instagram, Twitter, zoom, tic-tok. Never watched Love Island nor seen any TV in the last 5 years.

lilyflower, my friend, I find the last one very weird πŸ˜‚. My life would not be worth living without TV. Most of my knowledge has been acquired through that medium, more than I ever learned at school.

I have watched a series on the plantagenets, tudors, knights templar, history of weapons, castles, war of the roses, not to mention cookery, serious entertainment etc. I don't watch any of the stuff blacklabrador mentioned and rarely watch anything that I cannot glean something useful from.

Having said all that I bet you fill your time with far more useful stuff than me!

Lynibis Re no TV, you get used to not having it. When I was in the 'family' home there was only ONE TV allowed and I was well down the list in programme choice, so when I moved out 'why get a TV' had a laptop for news and radio for music and my books - oh then I met a man!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Skyped my daughter when she was in the States but it 'doesn't seem to work' in this country! Now that we are early retired the plan was to travel and hike so far not a lot this year, so back to music, books and my family history. We do watch films/documentaries on Netflix.

Ha ha, just had to reply to your list lol. Great fun!

  1. I don't think that's weird, I think those that have them are weird defacing the largest organ of their body.πŸ™„
  2. How can you put GOT and Love Island in the same sentence lol? One is brain numbing and the other is great entertainment πŸ€”
  3. I've never used it either but you spelt it wrongπŸ˜‚

4.Yeh, that's a little bit weird as lots of people use them as a meeting place. I only go about 6 times a year if that, shocking prices πŸ˜²β˜•

  1. That's not weird, that's sensible, can't find a pic of a cigarette!
  2. What's your favourite tipple?🍸

Lynibis Thank you for your response. I had a good laugh reading it. πŸ˜†

  1. I think it's so ugly.
  2. Sorry. πŸ˜€
  3. The only type of 'TickTock' I am familiar with is the sound that a clock makes. So please excuse the mistake. πŸ˜„
  4. Yeah, far too expensive. Though I have been to Greggs.
  5. Yes. And that will continue.
  6. I love JD and Coke. Very nice. πŸ˜‹

  1. I always mistake them for dirt until I am close up
  2. You're forgiven, though it depends which one you thought was mind numbing!
  3. As you thought it was to do with a clock it's only right you thought it was tick tock not tik tok
  4. Ah, cheap like me then πŸ˜‚
  5. Glad to hear it, all the better with covid around.
  6. Mine's a vodka thanks!

I am glad you only listed 6 lol!

I don't think I've seen Dirty Dancing.

As for Tiger King, I watched it simply because I couldn't draw my eyes away from it.

I've never eaten raw tomato.

I sank my teeth into one when I was little and was sick. So instead of me having a BLT, I just have a BL.

I'm fine with cooking with pasta sauces etc and I do like a bit of tommy sauce in my sausage sandwiches.

It's weird, I like most things tomato, but a glass of tomato juice makes me retch.

The only time I tried a b100dy mary was carnage. πŸ…

Never tried Starbucks/Costa or any of these coffee shops!! I can't justify paying over 3gbp for coffee with cream on it...

In my home country an expresso is 60cents and I don't touch that either lol

I love my Costa, but yep the price is a shocker, Β£3.10 the last time I was in there for a large Cappuccino.

When I was in Faro last year I was shocked when I asked a small coffee shop for an espresso and it cost just 40 cents.

Silly old me made hay and had 3, and then wondered why I couldn't sleep on the flight home.
