Un-ordinary, extraordinary, unusual, strange, odd, uncommon, intriguing, different, abnormal, and quirky.... These are all things that we think of to describe the word "peculiar." Most of these characteristics can be viewed as good, or not so good. Today is a day to look for the good in your peculiar acquaintances.
