Is That Normal?

My original plan for today was to post one of my new favorite crock pot recipes, but then I came across these fun "is it normal?" man vs. woman questions and I had to quick Facetime the boyf to join in on the fun.  


...for 2 men to hug?
Nick: Not always, it depends on the people. There are some men who do all the time and then those who never do. If they're my bros I give them a hug.  If I haven't seen them in a while I definitely give them a hug.
Me: Yeah, gotta have some respect for the bromance.

...to gag on your toothbrush while brushing?
Nick: No, not if you're doing it right.
Me: I've never heard of anybody doing that.

...to wear the same bra daily?
Nick: I have NO idea. I don't wear them...
Me: Yeah, I'd say it depends on what you're wearing on the outside. I'll wear  mine a couple times before washing (especially at school when I'm three or four weeks behind on my laundry).

...for grown women to frequently use the words "like" or "um" while speaking?
Nick: Yes.
Me: In a normal conversation, yes.  Public speaking...NO!

...to eat cake batter/dough?
Nick: Yes, atleast a little bit. You know, licking the bowl or stealing some when your beautiful, fabulous girlfriend is making you some. [ok, so I may have edited this response just a little bit... ;)]
Me: I personally don't like to, but I'd say it's pretty normal.

...to go "commando" in public/at work?
Nick: No, some people do that, but I wouldn't call it normal.
Me: Don't think so.  I did read a study one time though that said it was "good" for you to go "commando" once a week.

...to have long toenails?
Nick: (looks down at his feet) Guess it depends on if the person cuts their toe nails or not.

...to try on an article of clothing in the middle of the store?
Nick: No, unless it's a coat or something. 
Me: I had you try on a shirt once in the middle of Walmart...
Nick: yeah, that was...weird.
Me: If there's a long dressing room line and I have a tank top on underneath my shirt, it's so much easier.

...to tell someone to be quiet or "shhhh" someone in a quiet setting?  ie. church, movie theater, meeting, etc.
Nick: I wouldn't do that.  Other people do though.
Me: I don't do that unless I know the person.

...to change clothes multiple times before leaving the house?
Nick: Depends on how indecisive you are.  If it's a day I have to dress up then yes, I can never decide on what to wear.
Me: YES. Sometimes how I envision an outfit in my head and how it looks on that day are just not the same. I love being able to try different combos until I find the perfect outfit.
