Mom: Yes, you're not a normal stay-at-home housewife. (I'm not quite sure what that normal housewife looks like...)
Barb: No, I'm definitely not normal. I'm not a normal engineer either.
Mom: I was having a conversation with my hairdresser about you yesterday (Okay, I need to find out more about this conversation some other time, anyway, back to the conversation at hand) and she said, 'Do you sometimes wonder how she got to be this way?' To which I(Mom) said, 'Yes, she was a normal teenager.' (now, that part is debatable)
Barb: I was NOT a normal teenager.
Now some of you have assured me that I'm not all that weird, but all the people that are really close to me confirm (regularly) that I am, indeed, strange, weird, and not normal. Don't worry this doesn't disturb me (now that's a little strange). My husband doesn't think I'm too strange, but that's only because he's stranger than me (teehee).
Anyway, I suspect that most of my, shall we say, uniqueness is rather intangible, I thought I would try to quantify some of it. Here's what I found:
13.8% of BS Engineering degrees were granted to women (that's not TOO unique)
2.2% of the population have an IQ at or above mine (That's more unique, but I don't put a lot of weight in those tests)
1.8% of the population has a family size of seven or more (so I guess we are somewhere less than 1.8% - that's getting more unique)
1.1% of the population has adopted (now that's unique and sad at the same time)
Do you know how hard it is to find the statistics you want on the internet? Okay, just the fact that I spent time doing this is rather odd, don't you think?
