Funny little quirk

I have this slight oddity about me that I can predict rain. Let me explain...

When the humidity rises in the air, my hands, feet and ankles start dripping, literally! So this morning I was rather confused when I was all uncomfortable and sweating and the forecast on the internet said sunny for the next 5 days. My feet are never wrong! Well, it's been getting worse all day, I know it's hot, but it's a different kind of sweaty when it's humid.

So I went just now to check the forecast again. Sure enough, tonight 30% chance of rain, tomorrow 60% chance and risk of thunderstorms both tonight and tomorrow. HA!!! Now sometimes I feel like this and it doesn't rain where we live, but it does rains nearby. Sometimes, and by far the worst, is when it feels like this and the rain doesn't come; when it sits brewing in the heavens and it just won't rain. I'm the most miserable person (physically). I have to wear capris and not pants or else the hem of my pants are sopping wet and I can't touch anything because my hands are all wet. It's so gross and somewhat embarrassing. You can call me the human barometer. Someone even jokingly told me they were going to call me when they were planning to go golfing : )

So that's my strange little quirk. Well, one of them. Did I mention sausage makes me hiccup?

***UPDATE: Sweating let up a couple of hours ago, so chances are something by-passed us close, but the sweating will start up again once a system is close to us again. That's the joy of this sucky quirk!

You sure can't say that God doesn't have a sense of humour, making us so unique with these silly quirks -- that's the funniest thing I've heard in a long time!!

By the way, bread with cheese whiz is what makes me hiccup.

Okay that is really kind of neat. I'm sorry it makes you so miserable as a result, but amazing that you are never wrong.

Well, that is a quirk I have never heard of before! :)

That is a quirk, or a gift?
Does sound a bit uncomfy, and I think I'd be a little miserable myself.
