we’ve moved house recently and i’ve found myself wandering around the house turning the light off in unoccupied rooms, my da is a big fan of doing/complaining about this
found myself sending “interesting” articles from the paper to friends/family members which is the modern equivalent of the physical cutting out of articles from the paper that my ma still likes to do
let’s keep this light if possible…
Urgh my dad does the first one to an obsessive level, it’s so annoying.
Total intolerance for any lateness
Shouting at car drivers from my own car
Bought some wrapping paper in the sales for next Christmas, that is pure mum behaviour
seems like an admirable trait if you ask me
Tuneless whistling like my dad - getting more melodic though which he somehow never, ever did
Whenever I am holding a banana I have to fight the urge to hold it up to someones ear and yell BANG!!!
Completely inexplicable feelings of moodiness manifesting themselves in not really wanting to speak
My sense of humour is tbf very much based on stuff my parents do that I find annoying when they do it but hilarious when I do it
decanting everything into jars
The way I talk to the cat is exactly how my Mum talks to cats.
Also games like phone roulette, where you swear down the phone when a call is on hold
eating grapefruit for breakfast
greek yoghurt on cereal instead of milk
Telling people to stop fucking swearing, those acute moments of exasperation, i get it now mum
Also worrying about my vitamins
Not so much lights, but closing doors to keep the heat in. Not even sure my dad does this, just feels like those kind of vibes.
Also, I occasionally do a single, bark-like laugh at things, which Mrs HYG always comments on, and I’ve realised my dad does exactly the same. Is laughing genetic? Have I subconsciously copied it? It’s not a fake laugh, it’s a genuine laugh. Weird.
