Is There Something Odd or Unique About You?

Post by SonjaMarie » Thu January 29th, 2009, 4:50 am

I thought of this topic when I was about to take a nap.

Is there something that's odd or unique about you or your body?

Besides being born breeched, I was also born with 11 toes. I had 6 toes on my left foot, I had an extra baby toe. The doctors operated on my toes when I was still a baby, except they removed the wrong baby toe, so it's about one half the size of my right foot baby toe.

It's not surprising that at least one of my mom's kids had an extra digit as she was born with 12 toes, one extra on each foot.

I was born with a birth defect that basically saw my stomach organs all in the wrong place and wrapped around each other, meaning no food could get in and be digested. The subsequent surgery to correct it all was the first time it had been successful and/or the patient had survived. So I have a place in the medical record books because of it. :)

I am sure that there are plenty of odd things about me, but I will start with the fact that not only can I arch one eyebrow, I can also curl my tongue, and I can touch my tongue to the tip of my nose (although not when it is curled!)

I have three freckles on my right foot that roughly form a triangle--two are on my second and fourth toes, while the third is almost between my second and third toes. Odd, huh?

:o :p :) :o

Ditto. Of many odd things, I am double jointed in my elbows. They bend back waaaaay further then people are used to seeing. I try to remember when stretching to not stretch all the way in front of others but at times I forget. The looks on their faces........ :eek: :eek:

Nothing physically is odd about me, I'm just odd all around.

Yeah, nothing physical here. But definitely odd in other ways (actually I think a better word is eccentric :)
