Writing Prompts: Share a list of little-known facts about yourself

Well, I don’t know if these qualify as ‘little-known’, but I have a few little bits of info I am happy to share.

  1. I have double-jointed thumbs. These aren’t any sort of meaningful advantage. In fact, my left thumb doesn’t rotate like it used to. I think I knocked it at some point, and if I try to turn it like my right thumb, it hurts.
  2. I despise mushrooms. There, I said it. To me, mushrooms have absolutely no redeeming qualities. They look bad, smell worse, feel weird, and taste terrible. If I am in the kitchen when the wife starts cooking them, I leave the room. Their scent makes me want to gag.
  3. I have a reasonable tolerance for the cold. Even in January, I’d sleep in my underwear and a t-shirt (sometimes just my underwear and a vest, apologies for that disturbing image). I am more likely to overheat in warmer conditions though.
  4. Twenty years ago, I preferred tea over coffee. Now, apart from in the evenings, I drink a lot more coffee than tea. I can’t really say as to why, I’ve just changed over time. That said, tea is still better for dunking biscuits.
  5. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit the USA three times, yet despite being in the home of McDonald’s, I have never visited the Golden Arches whilst over there. I have had KFC out there, and you know, it was not as good as it was hyped up to be.
  6. I’ve been to or through every station on the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway Line. I can technically make the same argument for the main branch of the East Coast Main Line.
  7. As a kid, I would not touch Chinese or Indian food, and I short-changed myself out of what is actually some amazing cuisine. Nowadays (having once been very hesitant to do so) I will happily enjoy a vindaloo!

I am sure there are other minor facts about me I could share, but I can’t think of any at the moment. Hopefully these seven little gems are enough!
