I don’t like to take personality tests. You know the kinds that you answer a million questions to find out what “personality type” you are. Tom on the other hand loves these tests. What ends up happening is he bugs me to take them too.
I once took a test that asked the question, “Which Friends Character Are You?” Tom had nothing to do with it; he likes the more serious types of tests. Believe it or not I was Chandler. Maybe it’s the fact that I crack jokes all the time. Maybe it’s because I have something sarcastic to say (or ten). For the record, I show lots more self control with telling a joke. Those of you who know me are a little scared right now, but you should have seen me 20 years ago.
But this morning I was reminded why there is another reason why I’m the Chandler character – sound effects.
I don’t know about you other ladies out there, but I am horrible at sound effects. The majority of guys are born with this ability. They play cops and robbers or solider and produce all these sounds that sound like guns or bombs.
This morning I tried to imitate the sound of hair being cut by scissors. When Tom gave me that all knowing puzzled look, I told him what sound I was trying to make. He smiled, said he loved me and then made the correct sound of scissors cutting hair. We just laughed.
Here is a clip of Chandler that proves that sometimes these tests do come out correct.
