strange things we do

  1. Every morning when I take my first sip of coffee, I tell it how much I love it. As in "O coffee, how I love thee..."

    What weird thing do you do on a regular basis?

    I'll have to think about this one. I can't think of any thing right now.

    Till this day, when I drink a glass of milk or tea (don't do coffee), I leave a tiny bit at the end.

    When I was a kid, I'd almost always end up finding a piece of hair at the bottom and then I'd have to fish it outta me mouth. Would kinda gross me out and so to avoid this unpleasantness, I'd simply not drink the very dregs.

    But I still love to fish out the creme (?) that floats on top of hot milk that's cooled off. I find it kinda tasty while some people think I'm just gross and nasty

    I love custard skin, but I don't think that's the same!
    Every now and then when I come home and I'll say "Hi honey, I'm home" and then "Oh, that's right, I forgot. I live alone." Michelle Pfeiffer said something like that in Batman retunrs and it tickled me!

    When I am home alone I sing a different song to each of my animals. I sing to my birds, I sing to my lizard, I sing to the turtle, the two snakes and if I open a window I sing to the dog. I usually make up my own songs that would never top the charts. Not many want to hear how much "I love my Lacer Bacer and my Snakey Poos..."

    I dip my grilled cheese in Catsup. Always have, some people tell me that is weird.

    When I was a kid my mom watched "Rescue 911" I as convince that our house was going to burn down like the people on the show. So, for months before I went to bed, I would take all of my favorite stuffed animals and put them in a king sized sleeping bag. I would then tie a not in it and put it in bed with me. This was so if our house was on fire I could throw my stuffed animals out the window!

    Me?

    I talk to my animals. The poodle, the cat, the hamster, and yes even the sucker fish at the bottom of the aquarium. (I am so guilty). People have called me anywhere from "ridiculous fool" to "You need a child!" :chuckle

    I also put hot sauce on anything and everything. (Even of fresh fruit).

    When I get up in the morning after my cup of coffee I tidy up the house. Yepp, if I need to be somewhere at 6 then I am up extra early. Even when I feel sick! I then sweep, sweep again, mop with bleach, and re-mop with some nice smelling cleaner or Pine Sol. (I smell OCD ). Husband swears I am insane.

    Whenever I forget what I am going to say to someone i say "darn it I was going to say something profound", of course I say that so often that I when I start to say it, my friends finish the profound part for me...Also I don't like my food to touch each other, because then it becomes "contaminated". And last but not least, I must always sniff my food before I eat it.

    I'm sure everything I do is so perfectly ABnormal, it all seems perfectly normal. LOL

    I'll think of something...

    I hum when I'm repairing something. It helps me concentrate. If I can't hum, whatever it is will stay broke.

    I have to wash my hands after I open a package of food to cook.

    I always sniff new food before I try it!

    I cannot leave the house without going to the bathroom.........even if I don't have to go.

    I dip French fries in my chocolate shake, or at least I did when I used to eat those foods.

    I stay away from drains.......they creep me out.

    I can NOT sit down in someone else's bathtub, or let any part of my body touch the walls of a shower I myself have not cleaned. (I know, I know, it's a little OCDish, but I've been that way since I was a small child.)

    I have to have the drapes closed whenever I watch horror movies. :chuckle
