Not Your Typical Woman

I was reading a blog online this morning and it was from a woman who sounded a lot like me. She was saying that she is not the “typical stereotype female” and she told what made her different. My late husband Ben used to tell me that the thing he loved the most about me was that I was not the “typical female”. So I thought it would be kind of fun to post about what makes me different too. So here goes:

I prefer jeans and t-shirts/sweatshirts to any other kinds of clothes.
I do not own one single dress or skirt. I don't have to wear the “latest fashion”.

Most women have a closet full of high-heeled shoes. My closet has 3 pairs of athletic walking shoes and 2 pairs of hiking boots.
I would rather use a fanny pack than a purse. I only have one purse whereas most woman change purses with each outfit. I once bought a purse when I was dating Ben in the 1970s. I still have that purse. I carried it for over 40 years and was constantly teased about my “Hippie Purse” being out of date.
Yes...this is a photo of the actual purse.
I'd rather go on a hike in the mountains than to a movie or to a play.

Even though I love going to a nice steakhouse for special occasions, I prefer pizza or burgers when eating out.
I prefer WalMart and Target over high-end stores.

I don't like talking on the phone.
I don't wear make-up.

I never wanted children. I didn't have the “mommy gene” until I got Hiker.

So now you know the real me.


  1. hey there sister separated at birth... i am just like you and you are just like me.
    i wear jeans in cool weather and I wear capri jeans just below the knee because it is so hot here in Florida. i wear 4 pair of sandals all just alike, i don't wear pants unless they have pockets, no purse... i do have two children, 48 and 46 but never see them.
