    Default *Spin Off* What's the strangest thing/s YOU do?!

    I have laughed so much through reading the relatives and strange things they do thread. Partly because I recognise my family in the posts and now I feel like maybe mine isn't so strange after all!!!

    Got me thinking though, I wonder if my kids and family will one day say things about what I do (or maybe they could already!)

    I am sure this has been done before but what do YOU do that is strange?

    I definately have some quirks. E.g. I have a leaving house routine based around my dog. She gets 2 biscuits, a pick up and kiss on the head and then I tell her when I'll be back, followed by "LUB you'. I also search for the perfect radio station to keep her company. No sport- she wouldn't like sport. This drives my DP nuts!

    I worked with a girl used to push every door she walked through at home, fully open in case someone was behind it.

    Not wanting anyone to be offened by this thread because I know many people have quirks for particular reasosns.

    My forks and spoons have to be stacked neatly in the cutlery drawer otherwise I get angry. I hate that knives don't stack.

    My mind instantly makes nicknames for people, I can't control it! Like DD used to have silent reflux and she used to vomit all the time, so I started calling her vomit girl?! How horrible haha, but I don't really ever call her by her name now and when strangers hear me say 'momit girl', they automatically think her name is momit :/ I call everyone by my the nick name I've made for them, most don't seem to mind but I think it's really weird :/

    I like it when the syllables of things I read are in multiples of four, especially 16 (4 x 4). Sometimes when reading a book I read a sentence over and over again because it has sixteen syllables and I find reading it and counting the syllables satisfying

    I always read over things I have written (Facebook statuses and comments, forum posts, essays, emails, etc) numerous times even after its posted/sent. I like to revel in my own creativity lol.

    I have this exact same issue with multiples of 3. I love the letter 'W' for this reason (ie it has 3 syllables). I'm not so bad these days but when I was a kid I had to find a way to break down words and sentences into 3 letter syllables or I couldn't move on.

    Maybe it's a lawyer thing?
