Have you ever felt naked in front of everyone? I did. I went to Sunday mass yesterday all by myself feeling strangely exposed. That’s because I wasn’t able to wear earrings. You heard that right. I felt so vulnerable being seen in public places without earrings. I couldn’t go inside our bedroom to look for a pair of studs because my son might see me, and I wouldn’t be able to leave the house if he did. And so reluctantly I left the house, feeling uneasy on my way to church and during the one-hour mass. Nope, I’m not really materialistic or anything, but there are things I simply can’t do without, especially when I’m out of the house.

For one, I can’t leave the house without dabbing pressed powder on my face and putting on lipstick. This is actually part of good grooming for me. I always believe in making a good first impression, and what better way to impress but to look presentable at all times. Besides, I look pale without lipstick, so that’s another reason I make sure I apply lipstick before going out.

Next, I can’t leave the house without my eyeglasses for obvious reasons. I have been donning eyeglasses since I was in high school. Without eyeglasses, I can’t really see far and wide, so that won’t really get me anywhere. As Velma in Johnny Bravo says, “My glasses! I can’t see without my glasses!”

Third, I can’t step out of the house without a watch. In fact, I used to sleep with my watch on. This gives me easy access to time, which is quite important for a working mom like me. Since I have to juggle a full-time job and homemaking, including taking care of the baby, I need to always know the time, so yes, watch is an important accessory for me.

Finally, I can’t leave the house without wearing a pair of earrings. I don’t really have a logical explanation for this other than I got used to wearing earrings ever since I can remember that it has become automatic for me to don a pair whenever I have to go out of the house. I don’t know, I just feel so incomplete without them.

So, there, these are my idiosyncracies? What about yours?

But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here.
