Is that normal?

My friend Roopa has been participating in this link up, and it looked like so much fun!

Is it normal to drive 5 mph over the speed limit?  10 mph?
I always go 5 over the speed limit. 10 is a little too crazy for me, unless I'm in a big hurry! I'd say both are pretty normal in today's society though, because people drive like maniacs.
Is it normal to pick a wedgie in public?
Hahaha. I wouldn't say this is necessarily normal. In most public situations, I'd say it should try to be kept on the down low! A lot of people do it, but it isn't normal. Wait until your alone. Come up with an excuse to walk away or divert attention for like 5 seconds, and you're good!
Is it normal to put makeup on even if you aren't planning on leaving the house?
I think that's normal. You never know what might come up in the day and if you already have makeup on, you don't have to get ready. I certainly don't do this every day, but I don't think it's weird.
Is it normal to go skinny dipping?
Okay, let's say you live in a secluded home with a super duper private swimming pool with lots of trees, bamboo, and a nice thick privacy fence. That'd be fine. I'd say skinny dipping in a populated neighborhood or in a pool or area with no privacy fence is not normal...
Is it normal to use the restroom while on the phone?
More people apparently do this than I thought! Haha, I 've talked to my sister whilst in the restroom, but anyone else I think would feel waayy too awkward. I don't consider this normal..

Is it normal to check yourself out when passing by a window/mirror?
Who doesn't do this?! Honestly...it's very difficult to walk by a window or mirror and NOT look at your reflection! So, yes, definitely normal.

Is it normal to keep folded laundry in the basket instead of putting it away?
I'd say this is both normal and very lazy! You can go the extra step, like I do, and just keep refreshing the dryer cycle to avoid the task of putting it away as well.
Is it normal to turn & walk the opposite direction when seeing someone you know in a store?
Hahahaha. I've done this several times and I know most people do. If it's someone you know very well and know the situation won't be awkward, that's one thing. But it is COMPLETELY normal to avoid an acquaintance!

Is it normal to drink coffee/soda from a straw?
I don't think drinking coffee from a straw is normal...it is too hot and is painful! But drinking soda from a straw is completely normal?

Is it normal to hover the toilet in a public restroom?

I believe for good reasons that this is normal. Think about a public toilet for a moment...yep, it's normal!

Haha! I run from them:) Not the best way to get to know people, but I definitely prefer it in a controlled environment...haha. Hope you have a lovely week!
