Lots of us are weird in big, noticeable ways, that’s for sure. But I was looking the other day at a series of photographs of people’s fridges and I realized, you know what’s weird about me? In a small, barely noticeable way? I don’t have any beer in my fridge. I never do. In fact, I don’t really have any alcohol in the house of any kind. Maybe a bottle of Trader Joe’s white wine I used a cup of for cooking at one point. OK, I just looked and there’s a bottle of rum in the back of the cupboard. Who knows where it came from or how long it’s been there?
It’s not that I don’t drink; I do. But I don’t drink at home. For me, beer is for drinking at bars, or at parties. I would never sit and drink a beer and watch the ballgame, or drink a glass of wine with family dinner. But I think this is actually slightly weird and almost all people have beer in the fridge.
Reader survey: in what small way are you weird?
(Note: this would make an excellent question for OKCathy!)
