Confessions of Obsessions..

I'm kind of o.c.d about some things.

Like I have to brush my teeth at least 3 times a day and when I do I always brush them twice. And floss. It's like a religion to me. Because the feeling of dirty teeth is gross and we all know it.

And I can't stand touching things in public. Door handles, shopping carts, Redbox...

I just have this creepy feeling that someone that touched that thing right before me totally went to the bathroom and did not wash their hands. And now I probably have a disease. Ew. I'm grossed out just thinking about it.

But it turns out I'm not the only one that has obsessions of the unusual kind.

Last night at hair school, my instructor who is pregnant, kept spraying Pinesol into the air. Just a little whiff every now and then. I even caught her going into the break room to wipe down the tables with it just so she could smell it.  She then told us that her husband showed her recently that if she puts Pinesol into the water in the back of the toilet, the aroma will be in the air everytime she flushes.


This obviously opened up a discussion or rather, confessional, for everyone else in the room. Although I was laughing too hard to admit anything.

Because one of my favorite girls then admitted that she loves dirt. Everytime she sees it or smells it she wants to eat it. And in the most serious of tones she said that with all the construction going on around town, sometimes she just wants to roll her car window down and stick her tongue out into the wind.

Oh I love her with all my heart.

It just goes to show that we all have a little crazy in us..and I'm alright with that. At least I'm with friends..

What are you obsessed with these days?


  1. Love the teething brushing comments because I am a dentist and I laugh over this:) I am now following you via gfc. Found you through the mom blogging society. WOuld love if you want to follow me back at www.the-mommyhood-chronicles.com

  2. LOL. I love that...I don't love dirt. I don't feel like I'm really obsessed with anything right now. Maybe I need to change that. Before I go to bed every night every door in my rooom (there are 4) has to be shut. If it's not, I can't sleep, and if during the night my roommate got up to go to the bathroom and didn't shut the door, I wake up in a fright. I don't know why!

    Also, I used to be obsessed with ham, cheese, and pickle sandwiches toasted in a george foreman grill.
