Today's question is more than a question. I'd go as far enough to say that it's a teeny-tiny cry for help. Help with making me feel that maybe I'm not THAT crazy. That maybe there are actually people out there that are strange like me. See, me and Count Dracula have a problem. Now I don't go as far as laughing after each number, but I do indeed have a counting problem. In fact, it's so bad that in high school I used to know how many desks were in each of my classrooms! I mainly catch myself counting when I am bored. If my brain isn't doing anything it decides that the ceiling tiles are in dire need of being counted. Seriously, what the heck? Why does OCD make you do pointless things? Why can't my obsession be something cool or helpful? Maybe I'm being too pessimistic. I guess I could always be an accountant with my incredible counting talents or maybe I could be the girl that always wins the 'How many jelly beans are in the jar' contest. I guess it's all how you look at it, right?
Come on guys, make me feel better. What's the funny little OCD habit(s) you have?
