5 Embarrassing Facts About Me That Only Seattleites Will Understand

November 17, 2015

I'm not entirely sure why the idea for this blog popped into my head, but admitting to some embarrassing stuff that fellow Seattle residents can (hopefully) relate to, sounded fun! So let's do this.

1. I don't like salmon. I'll eat it every now and then if it's in a sushi roll, but if it's been cooked at all - I will gag. I KNOW, I'M THE WORST!

2. It took me way too long to realize that the pink elephant car wash sign was for an actual car wash. I just thought it was a random art fixture, like the troll. For some reason it took me years to notice the fully functioning car wash behind it. There's really no excuse for this one other than maybe I'm not as observant as I think!?

3. I own 3 umbrellas. I keep one in the house, one in my car, and one at work... JUST IN CASE!

4. I've never even driven by Kurt Cobain's old house. For someone who plays his band a bajillion times a day on the radio, you'd think I would have checked this important place off of my list of "touristy" things that I've done or seen, but nope. It's on Lake Washington, right? Honestly, I don't even know how to find it. Shameful.

5. I go to Starbucks almost every day. To be fair, I drink tea - NOT COFFEE. And I can get a huge tea from The Bux for like $2. To any baristas that work at local coffee shops that may be reading this, I'm sorry!

Phew, okay. That wasn't too bad... right? It felt good to get all of that off of my chest. I feel like I should do a redeeming post after this of "Seattle things" that I'm proud of or something. 

Do you have an embarrassing fact about yourself that you think other Seattleites can relate to? Leave it in the comments!
