Josh left me. For 5 days he went to Arizona to do God knows what (enjoy 90 degree temps and sunshine) with God knows who (his aunts for a day and then his bff for the rest of the time). Well, lucky for him I’m a.) not needy and b.) kind of happy to have a few days to myself. Is that bad? I mean, I love him. Dearly. And I love living with him (most of the time). But I’m really independent and sometimes I just need space. I think it’s healthy to have some time away from your significant other once in a while (that’s a whole other story for a whole other post).
While Josh was away, I engaged in some “Secret Single Behavior.” What is SSB, you ask? Urban Dictionary defines it as:
A term originating from the television show Sex and the City, a SSB is an action or habit that one indulges in only when alone. This refers especially to behavior that is hidden from one’s significant other and could be potentially embarrassing (or disastrous) if discovered.
Now, nothing I do would be “disastrous” if Josh found out, but there are some things I’m only comfortable doing when he’s gone. Gotta keep a little mystery, right? Without further ado, here are a few of my SSBs!
-Sporting dots of pimple cream all over my (apparently 13 year old) face. Ps, when does acne stop? Because I’m pretty sure I’m 25 and have the same amount of pimples as I did when I was in middle school.
-Going to the bathroom with the door open. Liberating. Try it sometime.
-Eating “non-meals.” Non-meals consist of small amounts of a lot of random foods eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For example, the other day for lunch I had “guacamole” (it’s in quotes because it was really just a mashed up avocado, salt and lime juice) and chips, a lemon square (courtesy of Jess), some carrots and hummus, and some leftover tortellini from dinner the night before. I could have just stopped with the tortellini, but no. Also, I’m pretty sure I didn’t have dinner that night.
-Eating in bed. Terrible habit. Usually chips. Definitely something that will result in crumbs in the sheets.
-Watching marathons of the Real Housewives of Anywhere. I can usually get Josh to sit through one episode so the fact that I can watch like, TEN episodes? Is awesome.
-Vlogging. Because I refuse to do it while Josh is in the house.
-No shaving! Again, so liberating.
-Full-blown Beyonce dance routines. This one is my favorite. I sense your judgement and I don’t care. I am Emily Fierce.
When I Googled “secret single behavior” I came across this great article from The Frisky. Definitely check it out if you want a really good laugh (and be sure to read the comments!).
Ok girls, your turn! What is your Secret Single Behavior?
