i'm odd, you're odd. we're all odd.

Traveling gives me lots of time to think. About nothing at all. Today I focused on what was odd about me. I have no idea why. Here are three of the many I came up with (I figure anymore will scare you away...)
1. I have to sleep on the side of the bed furthest from the door. I don't know why, but I have too. It isn't something I even think about... I just gravitate to that side of the bed no matter where I am.
2. I feel guilty taking baths. Without fail, when taking a bath, I fixate on how much water I'm "wasting" and how I can compensate the next day.
3. I have one OCD compulsion. I fear that I'm going to leave my hair straightener and/or oven on and burn my house down, consequently putting Gus in harms way. I only fixate on those two items. Two to three times a week I turn my car around and head back to my house to double check that they aren't on.
So friends, what's odd about you?

I'm with you on #3 - I have to touch all 4 burners before I leave the house. Do you like the smell of Gus's breath and/or feet pads? If you think that's weird than I don't either...
