I have some… let’s call them idiosyncrasies. You know what I mean. Little habits that I’m sure could be construed as weird by some people.
Like, if I eat any type of candy that comes in colors (M&M’s, Reeses Pieces, Skittles), I have to eat them by color… but only if I pour them out on my desk or a table. If I just pour them into my hand then it doesn’t matter.
I have certain bowls that I mix things in. Pecan pie must be mixed in my white stoneware bowl. Hopefully it will never break. Cookies have to be mixed my yellow bowl with the wide top. Dressing has to be mixed in my large white Tupperware bowl. The list goes on and on.
I don’t brush my teeth until after I take a shower. And if I take a shower later in the day… well, you might want to stand back. I just forget to do it.
I can’t have anyone touching me when I go to sleep at night. I have to have my own space. This makes it really hard when you have a six year old that likes to climb into bed with you every night. I do alright if she crawls in after I fall asleep, but if she does it before then I’m in trouble.
If I’m typing a sentence and I make a word choice I don’t like and change my mind then I have to delete all the way back to that point instead of just deleting that one word.
I hate wearing socks. And long sleeves. And forget about a turtleneck or anything else that fits around the neck because it is not going to happen.
Alright, I think that’s enough for now. I can’t have you thinking that I’m too weird. What about you? What are some of the little oddities that make you you?
