I have a gift...

  I'm not gonna lie, one thing I am really good at is noticing things. Things like: mannerisms, quirks, habits, and routines. I don't know why I picked up on this, but if I am around you for more than 20 minutes I have probably noticed the way you bite your lip, shift your eyes, say your "o's" funny, or tug on your shirt.

For example (and if I were in front of you I could act these out better than explain them):

Julie: Always undoes her chaptick with one hand, vigorously slathers it on, blinks quickly and then rubs them together.

Dewey: Always gives you the deer in the headlight look, clasps his hands anytime we are in a meeting, and always pulls his shirt down even when it is already down.

Ash: Every time she says something sarcastic or brutally honest she does an uncomfortable giggle, she always pops her knuckles and plays with the ring she wears on her thumb, and now that she has bangs she constantly fixes them.

Stef: Always says "Really?" after everything, looks up and slightly to the right especially when she is telling you a story, also fixes her bangs a lot, and will change her clothes 8 billion times.

Devan: Always smacks you in the arm after he says stuff as if to say, "you get it?" or an "oh I'm just kidding you" hit, puts all his weight on one leg and folds his arms when he is talking, and always swings his keys around... especially when he is uncomfortable.

Lindsey: Almost always has her arms folded, especially when we are in a group situation, always says what she is going to do before she does it like, "ok well, I am just gonna go ahead and shut this door!", and always opens her eyes really wide when she is listening to a story you are telling her. 

Cam: Nods her head and says, "Uh huh, uh huh" when you are telling her a story, always has her water bottle and drinks it constantly...always just a few sips, more than likely has her green purse around her and her keys hooked on whenever you see her, and when she laughs she always adds and extra bounce.

Well, I could go on forever, and I don't really know WHY I decided to tell you that... I just think it is funny the things I pick up on. Most people don't know this about me, so you better be careful what you do or say around me, I may just imitate you! Next time you see me, ask me what yours are - chances are I have picked on at least one or two. I love to do it! You can tell a lot by body language....

More later!

I always notice little quirks in people too. It's all in the details!

That is very impressive. But what do I do Chelsea?

Also, when you said "I have a gift..." I was hoping you had a gift for me. I was really banking on that gift.

I'm DEEPLY offended you didn't mention me by the way. MORE offended than even Vayla!
