This is week 4 of 7 Weeks of Weird and the prompt this week is: A weird habit/routine we have.
I haven’t ever really been a “creature of habit”. I have certain routines in the morning in order to get my husband ready for work and out the door, but they aren’t very weird. Same with my nighttime routine. Nothing really odd there. I do have a few weird habits and routines though:
- When I get dressed I put on one sock, one shoe and then the other sock and the other shoe. I know most people put on their socks and then their shoes, but I don’t. Archie Bunker and Michael Stivic once had a fight about which was the correct way to put on shoes and socks on the tv show All in the Family. (I tried to link a video with no luck)
- I eat all my food so that I have fairly equal portions on my plate throughout the meal. I like to have one bite of everything at the end of the meal.
- My husband says I have a habit of speaking in non sequiturs. That hat was a nice touch.
I am struggling to even come up with the three points that would make my weird habits/routines a few. Which is kind of strange since I am a pretty weird person. I’m more a spontaneous person, I think. I’m also not superstitious, so I don’t have any sports rituals, bingo rituals, anything like that.
I know there must be more. I just can’t think of them right now. After all, my habits aren’t weird to ME.
