Let’s talk about our (ok, my) odd behaviors, also (in my case) called neurosis. Most of us have at least a few odd and unexplainable habits. For example:
-I have a grandfather clock in my foyer and I hate it when I forget to wind it and it stops completely. It freaks me out a little. What do I think will happen? Will time stand still?
-I can only eat my M&M’s in pairs of matching colors. What the hell is that all about? I don’t even know and still my mind makes me do it.
-I need my alarm clock to go off at an even (yes, like an even number) time every morning (thanks Amy).
-My niece freaks out if you split a pole or post (if you are walking with someone and you each go around the opposite sides of the pole).
Actually, I could go on and on. I have no shortage of crazy or odd things that I do. After you’ve read this you probably feel pretty normal and you’re thinking how fucked up some people are! The funny thing is I don’t consider myself superstitious, just a little odd. Why do we do what we do? I don’t care what you say; I know you do at least one odd thing too!
