- Kleenex. My sister-in-law loves her husband enough to wash his hankies. I just don't love the environment that much. I love Kleenex.
- Shoes. At my training conference with people from the Caribbean and Central America, they had us line up in order of how many shoes we own. I didn't even know how many I owned. All except one of them only owned one to three pairs of shoes. I came home and counted. I own 31 pairs. And that's without the shoes I inherited from my grandmother-in-law.
- Weird kinds of squash. My farm is still pumping us full of squash. Today I tried delicata and sweet dumpling. The description on the web of sweet dumpling is "sweet as honey and shaped like a dumpling." Very sensual for a squash.
- Lemurs. They're so cute. And plushy.
- That I haven't had to kill a spider in years. I'm so spoiled, but gratefully spoiled.
- Toes. I like toes. Not yours. I mean, I'm sure they're fine. But I like Mike's and mine.
- Indoor plumbing. I have a friend whose parents still don't have it.
- White and Nerdy. Can I tell you that I think Weird Al looks oddly attractive as a G?
And the number one unconventional thing I'm thankful for?
- Chick-Fil-A Ice Dream shakes. (You knew it was going to be food.) I love how the one healthy fast food chain added a 900-calorie dream shake for me to add to my slim grilled chicken. You rock, Chick-Fil-A!
