39 Confessions of a 39 Year Old


In celebration of the 2 month anniversary of my blog, I have compiled another list of 39 things- “39 Confessions of a 39 year Old”.

Here they are!

I have Hannah Montana’s “Hoedown Throwdown” song on my playlist.

I have peed on the Long Island Expressway.

I have woken up my kids at midnight and told them it was time for school as a joke.

I have smelled my arm pits discreetly and indiscreetly in public.

I have secretly done a comparison with strangers within my age range wondering who looked older.

I believe I am going through a mid life crisis.

I am able to burp louder than my husband.

I have a secret stash of candy in my night table draw which I some times reach for in the middle of the night.

I am amused by a runner in my gym who juggles balls while on the treadmill.

I conversed with an imaginary friend Laura as a teenager just to annoy my brother.

I once taped my mouth shut with tape when my husband received our credit card statement.

I have recreated beach scenes in my apt in order to drive home the fact I needed a vacation.

I have always had the urge to amuse a TSA officer at the airport by asking to check in a clutch.

I despise beets. I used to despise capers but I am slowly developing a taste for them.

I chew way too much gum in a day (apparently its called “emotional chewing”).

When I was 14 (ok 16) I met a Brazilian and an Italian and asked them how long the car ride was from Brazil to Italy.

I cried at an Elmo show with my then 2 year old daughter. They were happy tears. I found the whole experience emotional.

I have had botox done on my face and underarms. Yep you got that right.

I lied about my height on my drivers license.

When I was younger, watching the weather channel was a favorite past time of mine.

I play the game memory with my kids with the sole intention of winning. I haven’t won yet.

I have anxiety.

I don’t  wear nail polish in the winter because I have no patience for it to dry.

I try not to look in mirror at the gym to avoid seeming vain but its a challenge.

I love Disney World.

I still love all things Hello Kitty.

I use the elevator at the gym.

I have never watched E.T.

I have experienced “fomo” (Fear Of Missing Out) while on instagram.

I once waited in what I thought was heavy Lincoln Tunnel traffic. I was actually waiting behind a bunch of parked cars.

I used to cross off my to do list with a ruler.

I can’t carry a tune AT ALL.

I sometimes smile out of nerves upon hearing bad news. It’s so terrible when it happens to me.

I hate being tickled.

Last TV series I watched was 24. I still have not recovered from that show.

I don’t do well getting stuck in traffic.

I once stole gum balls.

I am afraid to sleep alone.

There are more confessions I just can’t share!
