I'm sitting at my computer, at work. It is godawful hot in here - my thermometer at the moment says 77.7 degrees. Lovely. (And that's not the worst it gets, by far - most day's it's close to 80 by the time I leave, at one point last summer it was 86.5!) My problem is that I'm a sweater. I don't glisten, I don't perspire, none of those nice girly things. I sweat. Usually my deodorant controls it relatively well, but when I get nervous, for example when I'm giving a presentation... well, not so much. When I'm presenting I also get sweaty *everywhere* - I can often feel the sweat running down the backs of my legs. Ugh. Anyway, despite the short sleeved shirt I'm wearing today, or perhaps because of it?, I've been sweating. And I get a whiff every now and again. Double ugh. I'm hoping that it doesn't worsen with pregnancy, although I'm not holding my breath. But perhaps I'm going to need to!
The other thing I hate is that I blush on a dime. Whenever attention is focused on me for any kind of personal reason (although fortunately not when I'm, say, presenting at work - then I just sweat), I can feel my face turning beet red. For example, one of my coworkers just came in to congratulate me on my pregnancy, having found out through the grapevine. We were having a perfectly normal conversation, what's my due date, how nice to be pregnant in the summer because clothes are less expensive, blah blah blah. And I can just feel the heat exuding from all the blood in my face. It's so annoying and embarrasing. As if I need to be more embarassed when I'm already there!
So, are there any physical quirks like this that drive you batty?
