Five Easy Pieces
- I collect pint glasses.
In and of itself, it’s not that weird. But I steal them from bars and restaurants. Don’t go to a bar with me if you don’t want to see me snake a pint glass.
- I only wash my hair every other day.
It’s almost down to my waist… I just don’t have the time. As a side weirdness to this one, I use way more product on my hair than any two women.
- I’ve been married before.
I was young and stupid and it was literally decades ago.
- I’m a stickler for the spoken word.

Irregardless (the word you want is regardless)
Supposebly (it’s supposedly)
Twice-t or Across-t (I have no idea why some people need to put the extra ‘tuh’ or ‘duh’ sound on the end)
Card Shark (there’s no such thing – it’s a cardsharp)
…and that just the tip of that iceberg
- I have a self-diagnosed minor case of Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder.
My OCD manifests itself in my need to be on time. At first blush, this doesn’t sound so bad. Except that everything I do revolves around being. on. time.

The more important the event, the earlier I am. And I start worrying about being on time hours before the event.
And if I’m running behind (if I’m right on time, I’m late), I become an unpleasant bear to be around.
That’s it. At least all that I’m willing to admit to.
