Tuesday, I’m a creature…

I have tried to think of something to write for the Tuesday Two Shoes prompt,
creature or wild.


There is nothing wild about me to write about.
In my younger days I was quite rebellious and maybe some thought me wild.
But really I was just a rebel not really wild.
So, that’s a dead-end for a post.

But I am a creature of habit!
Yep, I am a creature (woman) of habit (rarely deviating from my patterns).

These are some of my habits:

  • I always brush my teeth before I wash my face.
  • When I get to work I make a cup of Chai Tea Latte; nothing gets done ’til the tea is made.
  • I read before I go to sleep.
  • I always say good-bye to Teddy when leaving the apartment if I forget I go back. If I can’t go back I fret. 
  • I read every page of a book, and I mean every page, even the one with tiny print that the publisher writes.
  • If I have a choice of dessert it will always be something chocolate.
  • I always make my bed everyday, even if I am running late, I will not leave until the bed is made. 

Isn’t this just too fascinating?

Notice there are no bad habits?
 I tried to think of some but there just aren’t any.

Well, maybe fudging the truth now and then could be considered a bad habit.
But I think of it as being nice.
Like when somebody hurts your feelings and you say they didn’t.
Or when someone asks you if they look fat and you say no even if they are 5 feet tall and 200 pounds.
Stuff like that is not a bad habit it’s being nice.

Today, I think I am a bit boring creature of habit.  Maybe I need to find  my wild side.

Ps. If I find my wild side I will write about it, of course!

  1. I loved this…I also make my bed like you…read before I go to bed and devour every word on every page…and if I had a Teddy I’d go back too if I thought I had forgotton to say good bye. This was awfully sweet!!!

  2. I like your habits, Patricia. I just asked myself, “is there anything bad here?”
    Also until the second half, “is she talking about the cat?”

  3. This is a wonderful take on the prompts! I am right there with you, too. That is why I love cats. Like them, I am a creature of habit. I don’t like to break routine, either. I think there is security in sameness, and say it often. It’s true, though. I can really identify with this post. Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Annie. I am definitely all for routine. A change now and then is fine as long as it isn’t too much of a surprise. It is all about feeling secure and in control.

  4. Hello there, Patricia!

    I can see that we have something in common. First, I also read EVERY page of the book. Before I start reading the story, I would read the reviews in the front and at the back of the book. Then, I’d check the copyright date. I don’t know why, but out of habit, I always check when it was published and who published it. Then, then next page after that and the one after that and so on.

    Second is the love for chocolate. Yum! ;o)

  5. I never cease to be amazed at how many different ways people can use a prompt word! Once again you’ve come up with an angle all your own, and I love it! It could be said that I was once a “wild-child” too, though really I wasn’t, at least in the traditional sense of partying and such. I just “thought” differently than most folks, and that wasn’t acceptable in the small town where I grew up. I don’t think that you or your life is boring at all, to me routine are comforting, they provide a sense of security and rightness in our world. The older I get the more I stick to certain ways of doing things, just like you! If I deviate, it disrupts my day and my peace of mind. I do so love a nicely made bed, but I leave before the Papa Bear is out of it, and I don’t think it’s fair to ask him to make it up before he goes, he works much longer hours than I do. My mother would surely be aghast at my rumpled bed, to leave it unmade was unthinkable I my childhood! 🙂 I am totally with you on chocolate for desert… or breakfast, or lunch… or a midnight snack! This was a great TST post, and your delightful feline illustrations always give it extra stars from me! Thank you so much for joining us, Patricia, I truly enjoy your posts!

    1. Thanks, Josie. I do tend to come at things from a bit off center…ditzy peeps do that. I am more of a creature of habit now that I am old(er). There was a time I wouldn’t give a second thought to the randomness of my life but nowadays I like routine.
