This is part of the OCD (Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder) cocktail.
And I gots it.
I'm not nearly as bad as I used to be. Though my ex often called me "monkish" after Adrian Monk of USA station fame. You know...the character that boils his toothbrush and polishes the doorknobs.
I'm not nearly as frantic as I used to be about checking stats and whatnot. Though my website has increased its hits.
Hey! I didn't go cold turkey, either.
My obsessive traits include constantly checking the front door to see if its locked. (It is)
Checking my alarm clock to make sure the alarm is set for a certain time every morning. (I check four times. It's my magic number.)
The microwave MUST stop on an odd number. And I don't like to hear it ding.
If I get a word stuck in my head...God forbid. Then I have to say the word aloud. I suppose its like purging my gray matter.
All manner of oddities, I assure you.
I gotta know.
What are some of yours?
