Strange behaviors?

  1. I had a classmate who picked up worms from the concrete in the rain and put them on the lawn so they wouldn't be stepped on or run over.

    A man I know was talking in our yard as he picked dead leaves from plants and put them in his pocket.

    A doctor was in the room of a comatose patient peeling paint off the wall where a cart had put a dent.

    MORE?

    I pass wind in private - does that count?

    I dunno - what one person thinks is normal another thinks is a ticket to cloud La La land.

    I have hit an awful lot of people (my mother included) who think that readin science fiction is DEFINETLY "strange"

    I read science magazines too - no woman's weekly, new idea, cleo or new woman in my house, only new scientist, scientific American and the odd Fortean times - most people I know think that that is very defintely and absolutely weird.

    Do you play "Magic" as well - I played it with a group of freinds in Rockhampton but teh only group that plays it down here plays for blood not money - found it fascinating a triple layer strategy game!

    I have to make the bed before I can get in it and if the top edge of the sheet isn't folded over the top edge of the blanket correctly I can't sleep.

    AMEN! and there has to be the top sheet in addition to the bottom sheet...the DH hates that top sheet as well as both my kids but I just have to have it

    I guess I'm strange. I take bugs outside instead of killing them (except for black widows!).

    And I used to think people walking along talking to themselves was strange. Recently everyone I've seen 'talking to himself' has actually been on a cell phone.
    I talk to myself all the time, though, but there's never been any question about MY sanity!

    I sing wierd songs. I mean really wierd songs! And also say wierd sayings to my self.

    Some of them since I was in grade school!

    Almost compulsively, I might add. Like when I get out of the car. When I'm in the shower. When I first walk in the front door to my house. Or when running upstairs to the 2nd floor at work.

    Always by myself and to myself. . . I HOPE!!!

    Things sang or said??

    "A boom boom boop, be-dolly-olly-ay.
    A boom boom boop, be-dolly-olly-ay."

    (Been singing this one on and off since grade school!)

    or

    "I spank you all so very much!"

    (Been saying this one since my cruise ship days! Over 10 years ago!)

    or

    "I'm a Barbie Girl in my Barbie world. I'm so happy. I'm made of plastic"

    (Been singing this one since I first heard it on the radio about 6 years ago.)

    I like to watch peoples facial expressions as the sing in the car in traffic.

    Have you ever remembered something funny in a quite/serious place and LOL, it is so embarassing. I used to do it at school all the time.

    I do the same thing! Especially when my wife wants me to kill yet another spider.

    And when I let the poor cute little spider outside, I sing:

    "BORN FREE. . . AS FREE AS THE WIND BLOWS"

    It's part of the ritual!
