If you don't know - he's the Obsessive Compulsive Detective that I've grown very attached to over the past few years...
I'm sure that OCD is nothing to laugh about... so I'll just apologize in advance - but I laugh very frequently at some of the OCD tendencies I see daily.
Tooth brushing? When I was pregnant the last time (6 years ago) I could NOT seem to feel like my teeth were clean... there were times when I just HAD to brush my teeth - I could sometimes put it off for a minute or two... but more than one friend laughed at me because I'd be brushing my teeth and talking on the phone at the same time. Heaven forbid my bladder should awaken me at night because I'd have to brush my teeth on the way to the bathroom... and then again on the way out...
gum chewing helped a little... and now my non-pregnant self knows that I can handle it... I only brush my teeth 6 or 7 times daily now - that's normal right?
Books? You know I love books... but I have a little gripe - I would love if there were an industry standard on the height of books... getting them all to sit nicely together on a shelf is HIGHLY annoying to me... just saying.
Decorating? I have to be the one that replaces the trunk that serves as a coffee table... it sits in the middle of a square patterned rug. IN. THE. MIDDLE. not off to the side slightly... the middle. please and thank you. Yeah, that does mean I'll re-do it every week after vacuuming. at least twice.
Don't get me started on the dishwasher... I'm trying to let that one go... especially since we have a new dishwasher and my OLD compulsive tendencies just don't work with this one.
Yes, my CDs ARE alphabetized thank you very much - but my clothes are no longer arranged by colors. I've moved on to separating them by seasons, sleeve length, and THEN color.
and numbers... sometimes they bug me... can I just tell you - that 99 followers thing? I may have to move it out of my vision... unless of course one of you visitors finds me funny enough to even it out for me? (if somebody UN-follows that won't help... I promise... that will just make me cry)
and for the record - yes I DO know that I should be aspiring to be more peaceful, loving, and the OTHER monk-like... but hey - Monk (my OCD Monk) just makes me laugh SO much harder.
