25 Things I Should Be Ashamed Of

I'm not gonna pin this list on a figurative brother. I'll man up and claim these as my own:

-At one point in my life, I knew every line from Jim Carrey's smash-hit comedy, "The Mask."

-I have blamed my gas on my sleeping son.

-I owned Lou Bega's album, "A Little Bit of Mambo."

-I'm horrible at guessing movie plot twists. I didn't guess the ending to "The Sixth Sense", "The Usual Suspects", or "Who Framed Roger Rabbit."

-I don't know who my congressman is.

-Even though I shouldn't like them, I like Eminem, Kid Rock, and the smell of gasoline.

-I fell for the "updog" joke in eighth grade.

-I am 6'3" and weigh 270 pounds, but I am an excellent dancer. I can even do "The Worm." I will never prove this to anyone.

-I have an extensive collection of sports cards.

-I've gotten nine traffic tickets and two warnings.

-I have no idea what the difference is between mayonnaise and Miracle Whip. But I will argue with people about which is better just for fun. I do the same with butter and margarine.

-I have used the same kind of deodorant for 10 years.

-I have a favorite elevator at my office building.

-I think fireworks are stupid, boring, and pointless.

-When I see someone fall down, my first instinct is to laugh. My second is to look for a fellow onlooker to laugh with. My third is to wonder if the person is alright.

-I lost my bowling ball. I have no idea where it is. How do you lose a 14-lb. black stone with your name on it?

-I have cried while watching a reality TV show.

-I saw Destiny's Child in concert.

-I saw New Kids on the Block in concert.

-I have an English degree, but I can't name any books I finished in college besides the Harry Potter series.

-I have never beaten Super Mario Brothers from the original Nintendo.

-I have an English degree because the day I had to decide on a major, I was three blocks away from the Political Science office and one floor away from the English office.

-It's bothering me that the title of this post ends with a preposition.

-Taco Bell is one of my favorite places to eat.

-I don't trust short people who are really quiet.

I really like Paris Hilton, even though there's absolutely no reason to and I am a 38 year old woman with a Master's degree.

I just read this again. I laugh EVERY TIME I read that you saw Destiny's Child in concert.
