compulsion

i believe that every single one of us is afflicted with just a touch of ocd. everyone, in some way, has something that compels him/her to irrational action.

confess your obsessive compulsions.


i'll go first. i can't let objects touch each other when they're at rest. for example, when stacking glasses into the cupboard, i have to make sure there's at least a hair's width of space between each glass. the bottles in the pantry can't touch either. if i put items back in the pantry and a moment later realize that two of the bottles might be touching, i have to go back in and make sure they're not. i realized this over the weekend when the spouse and i were out to dinner and he pushed the steamed rice bowl up against the soy sauce bottle. i was compelled to reach out and separate them.

in what way are you touched with OCD? fess up.

THAT'S EXACTLY IT!!!!!! if you let the glasses touch each other then the next time you walk through the kitchen they might make that buzzing rattling sound against each other!

When I eat, I make it a point to scrape the fork over my teeth when I take a bite.

SCRRAAAAAAAAAAPE.

Also, when I am eating an enchilada plate at my fave Mexican dive, I gleefully mix the beans and rice with reckless abandon.

I think I have anti-OCD. It's not really any healthier.

Whenever I put Zero on a shelf, I make sure he's facing to my left, and I use my right hand, so I can pet him all down his neck and back and right to the tippy tip of his tail, so he's rubbed all the right way and can't complain. Every time. Every. Single. Time.
