I have a penchant for weird things. (And for the word penchant.) One of my favorite things to do is to visit a thrift store and browse the shelves in search for that crazy little object that stops me in my tracks. The thing that makes me ask, in head-shaking disbelief, how is it possible that this even exists? These sorts of discoveries aren't confined to thrift stores, though. Weirdness can thrive pretty much anywhere. That's what this blog series is about: to share with you the things or experiences that make me pause, smile, arch my brows, or scratch my head. Words, whims, and whatnot, in other words.
