Hmmm...bother us? I dunno. Not a lot bugs me. Liam is bothered by loud noises that are sudden. He flips out. But Kieran doesn't have anything. I am bothered by people who think they are owed things in life...as though there is a giant scoreboard. But I mostly can shrug it off as long as I don't have to spend a lot of time with them.

As a family...we are very anti-sports. None of us are interested and you would never find any sporting event (except maybe the Olympics) on our TV. We just don't really see the point. None of us are remotely competitive. And that seems to be a popular thing to be into.

I think the sports thing is one area where we are odd men out. But I do run across other people who don't enjoy them much either. But in many ways, I feel like I "fit in" in lots of areas. I can't think of a specific time where I felt really "odd man out."

What things bother you or your kids that don't bother most people? my kids aren't bothered by much, not yet anyways. For me is things like loud colours, crazy patterns, on clothes and shoes. I need things to be fairly plain.

What things are you not into that most people love? sports, a big thing in this area is hunting/fishing. Even if I wasn't a vegetarian I would not want to.

What things are you the "odd one out" about? Most of my parenting, my religious views, the way I dress. Quite a lot, really. I've always been the kind of person who's more concerned with being myself and trusting my own moral compass than fitting in or following, and I live in a very one-way town. It's the way it is.
