Favorite Author

Someone asked me the other day, “Who is your favorite author?”

I thought about it for a minute and I don’t have a favorite author.  That sounds weird, since I love to read.

I read all kinds of books.  I enjoy the classics, popular novels, history, science, psychology, religion, economics, personal development, and even financial management books.

What do you think?  Am I just weird?  Do you have a favorite author?

Personal Quirkiness

One of my personal quirks is I can’t stand for my hair to touch my ears.  It really annoys me.  I am not sure why I get so irritated by hair touching my ears, but I do have a theory.

Due to my inner-ear deformities, I had numerous ear surgeries.  There were so many surgeries, by the time I entered my teen years I had lost count.  The surgeries continued into early adulthood.  Maybe that’s why I am so sensitive about my ears.
