10 Things I First Notice About Someone
#Monday Listicles

The things I first notice about someone have definitely changed over the years.  When I was a teenager I will admit that physical looks (be it a male or female) were at the top of the list. 

1.      Hair 
Oh how I would have died for my hair to have some body. With poker straight, wiry hair…I was never going to have hair like Farrah Fawcett and the long shag that guys were sporting back then...*sigh*


2.      A Colgate Smile
Or……maybe not.


3.      Eyes 
Guess who???


Once out in the working world, reality set in and life was nothing like an episode of the Love Boat or Fantasy Island. Physical looks moved down the list and were replaced with things like:  

4.      Personal Hygiene 
A crisp and clean smell would make me weak at the knees. 


5.      Sense of humour



6.      Personality:  Yes mom…your words did not fall on deaf ears after all. 


Marriage, motherhood and menopause were the next stages and with them came deep thoughts:

7.      
Pretty much says it all doesn't it...


8.      Will their vehicle accommodate a baby seat?



9.      Do they need a nose and ear trimmer?



10.   And most important these days…do they still buy green bananas? 


What things do you first notice about someone? 

Thanks to Donetta over at My Constant Thoughts for coming up with this week's topic.  Don't forget to pop over to Stasha's and see what everybody notices.

  1. Oh you make me laugh. Start out somewhat serious, and then it just goes downhill from there. The nose and ear hair? Ugh! Green bananas? Why? (I do sometimes.)
    I must send the sense of humor one to my brother. He and I are the funniest members of our family, and we have an ongoing debate about which one of us is the funniest.

    1. Buying green bananas is a good thing...means you're still going to be around to see them get ripe. Tee hee.

      Can't imagine your brother being funnier than you! :D

  5. I have poker straight hair too! Now people ask me what kind of flat iron I use. I just laugh and tell them I don't. I guess it's a bonus now that straight is in.

    1. I am SO glad that straight is in too! I absolutely HATED getting perms when I was younger. They had to be timed around "special" occasions. :)

  7. That was hilarious. Ours really were similar! And I'm so with you about the 'clean' smell! When my husband's fresh from the shower I just want to sit next to him for like an hour.

    1. There was a time when I would actually ummmm follow someone if they smelt good. :O Having a teenage boy go through the Axe stage has pretty much killed that.

  8. I am so with you on the hair. I, too, have incredibly straight, fine hair, and I covet curly hair with body!

    1. I am not amused when people complain about having to "straight-iron" their hair. :/

  9. I like how you moved from appearance to personality. I was much more shallow and stuck to appearance. My favorite, and one of the most important to me, is sense of humor. I have difficulty relating to a person with no sense of humor - I can't use any of my witter banter!
