Just Normal

Posted on

A while back during training for work some coworker and I got an inside look at our boss from her former roommate. Her roommate shared with us several of her “OCD” tendencies. Some of these included:

  • Grabbing the third can back off the grocery store shelf but never the first can
  • Not going outside barefooted
  • Not mixing clothing brands in an outfit (Nike shorts with Adidas socks)
  • Walking through her whole house immediately when she gets home to make sure nothing is out of place
  • Not eating any vegetables
  • Changing her bed sheets every day
  • Have meticulously organized kitchen cabinets
  • Not swimming

These are just a few of the things she shared with us in the hour or so long conversation we had about it. When it was all said and done my boss came to the conclusion that she really isn’t “OCD” and that everyone has their own tendencies and quirks just like she has hers.

Ever since this conversation I have been thinking about what my weird tendencies are. After thinking long and hard I was not able to come up with anything at all. So I asked my wonderful husband what kind of things I do that might seem weird or unusual to someone else.

Picture of my wonderful husband!

He was quick to list off the following things:

  • I pick at my nails all the time (lately I have a strange addiction to painting my nails with clear nail polish, waiting for it to dry and then immediately pealing it off)
  • I chew ice
  • I have crazy dreams every night
  • I eat peanut butter on my pancakes and French toast
  • I talk to Boy and Olivia
  • I answer my own questions

Call me crazy but I think all of these things are perfectly normal. I have come to the conclusion that I am not odd, bizarre, weird or out of the ordinary but I am just normal!

  1. The one called MALDO

    What do you mean these are normal why would you ask a question if you already know the answer. Why would you chew ice especially when someone is trying to watch the history channel. WOW and those dreams come on are you for reall, there like the craziest wierdest dreams. Who dreams about the stuff you do, and why would you wake me up in the middle of the Fn night to tell me about it. Boy and Olivia are you for real there two fish in a freakn bowl who dont speak or even understand what your talking about, they eat food in the water where they shit and piss.

  2. Jess I think you get the talking to animals thing from your dad, he was always talking to his dogs like they would answer back!!!
