Can’t you do anything the normal way???

November 12th, 2012

Throughout my lifetime, I have always felt I didn’t do anything the ‘normal’ way. I always had to put a twist to any project I had. Even when I am cleaning, my husband claims I have to destroy a room first. And usually when I am finished, the room has been rearranged, pictures re-hung and sometimes a new paint color on the walls. But it is always clean in the end.

My son was studying hereditary genetics in school and shared with me that less than 2% of the world population has green eyes.

 

My sister has blue eyes, so she is a little less of a freak!

So that got me thinking and googling, and I found that Red hair is the least common hair color in the world at 1-2% of the population.
On to my next research….A variety of studies suggest that approximately 10% of the world population is left-handed. I know many people are aware of Right-handed and Left-handed scissors. When I was in grade school, there was always a box filled with the blue handled scissors for the ‘Normal’ kids, and then there was the 1-2 pairs of green handled scissors for the left-handed kids. And kids would look at me funny when I took the green handled scissors. But it was the same funny look I had become accustom to when they looked at my red hair.
One more hereditary genetic fact that I chose to research was Blood type. I have AB negative which I discovered when I was pregnant.  A woman is at risk when she has a negative Rh factor and her partner has a positive Rh factor. This combination can produce a child who is Rh  positive, This can cause the mother to create antibodies against the Rh factor, thus treating an Rh positive baby like an intruder in her body.  This is probably more information than you cared to have…anyway, I knew I was a rarity, but after checking the charts I fall into the 1%.

My research has shown me that there is very little chance I can do anything the normal way. I have learned to accept this over the years, and actually have embraced it in many aspects of my life.

 

What in the world does this have to do with Beauty of the Bistro??? If you have visited the Food Truck, you may have noticed there is nothing plain or normal on the menu. Everything has a little twist. There have been a few customers that struggle with this, but the ones that embrace it and step outside of the box, have come to appreciate that a Boom Boom Taco is so much more than just a Taco!!!
