What is an “ism?” It is some minor little something that tends to bug you more than it does others. Simply put, a pet peeve. We all have them. For instance, I can not stand a man with smooth hands. I am talking like smooth as a baby’s bottom kind of smooth. I went out with a man once whose hands were so soft. It really was a major turn off for me. One of my MAJOR “isms” is someone had best not touch the bottom of their foot to the bottom of mine. This causes extreme chaos and possible catastrophe. I will kick and scream and cause bodily harm because it makes my skin crawl. Have you ever touched your finger to another persons? You take your free hand and feel the two fingers pressed together. They feel dead and numb. That is what I feel when a person touches the bottom of their foot to mine. So , please! Do not do this to me! Do not do it to yourself. It could be hazardous to your health. Maybe I am just weird. I do not know. To me, my “isms” are very scary and real. I have often wondered if I just stuck the bottom of my foot tot the bottom of someone else’s and just held it there no matter how it felt. Just “man-up” and hold them there as long as I can probably gritting my teeth together. I imagine that I would also break out into a sweat. I would have to close my eyes and just ggggrrrrrrrr. You know what I mean? Could I then cure myself from my own “ism?” The thought terrifies me. I am uncertain whether I could take it long enough. I may try one day…… but I probably will not start today! : )
I hope you all have had a great day!
