Bonus Quirks

Bonus Quirks: Not that you wanted MORE... but I couldn't sleep last night so I thought-wrote a blog in my head. (you know you do it too!)

1.) Twirling my hair and often touching it to my lips.
2.) I strongly dislike feet. I don't really like my own and I don't want anyone elses' to touch me. I do not like to pick up dirty socks. If one drops from the pile, I'll use something else (a shirt or a towel) to pick it up with and tuck it into the pile. Especially if the dirty socks are moist... it kind of makes me want to throw up in my mouth a little bit.
3.) I almost always consolidate trash after eating or while cooking. If I'm at Chick-fil-A, I'll end up stuffing all napkins, sauce containers, straw wrappers, and any other trash into the bag that my sandwich came in. In middle school I would use the milk carton to stuff all of my trash into. My aunt remembers everyone waiting on me at Miss Winners because I had to carefully fold the hand wipe back the way it was before I used it and return it to it's pouch before throwing it away. I also do this with gum wrappers. I don't like things that won't fold, like my granola bar wrappers, so I am forced to tie them in a knot. I do this folding and stuffing without thinking about it. Clean up - Clean up.
4.) Cans... I'd like to post about Cans. (you know, food cans) My father writes the price he paid for that can, on the can, with a marker. He will use that price to bargain shop the same item once he uses it. My husband, on the other hand, washes every can before use. He fully believes that rats have run across the tops of all cans in a warehouse somewhere. He made me adopt the washing technique... a.k.a. his OCD quirk. But we have clean can lids!

Please read my original Quirk post below this one and Please leave a comment about which one is the quirkiest quirk.
Please read the folks I tagged who have also posted funny and odd quirks. (If you were not tagged and want to blog this, let me know and I'll link to you too.) Happy blogging!

I would definitely say the neck thing is the weirdest!! But, everyone has something like that!

I once got my haircut by a good friend of mine...it was the usual deal..put the cape on, get your hair washed, etc.. BUT about 2 or 3minutes into my hair cut I had this crazy feeling I could not breathe and I made her loosen the cape around my neck. (It was never tight in the first place...) Then a few minutes later I just went insane and hysterical... I was like "ohh it feels so tight I can't breathe"!! She was like "It is already so loose that hair is going to get all over you!" I have no clue what happened that day...I think I really freaked my friend out too... So, I can't vote for that one...and I wash off my can lids too... So I vote for the germs one...haha, cause you know what I think about germs...

The germ thing includes not touching sponges or dish rags that are wet. I only use a scrub brush with a handle!!

Gosh, sweetie, I guess I created a monster. Aren't all personality disorders related somehow to your mother????

Oh - and you didn't mention the hair twirling thing started when you had NO hair and you twirled mine! I kept putting your hand back on your own head and you finally had enough hair to twirl your own! HA!!!
