And I Thought I Was Crazy! Quirks, Idiosyncrasies and Meshugaas
by Judy Reiser
•Do you refuse to take the top newspaper on a stack (even if perfect)?
•Insist that the toilet paper hang "over"?
•Wait for the phone to ring at least twice before answering?
•Keep returning to the refrigerator hoping that something new to eat has materialized?
Outrageous, outlandish and downright ridiculous eccentricities exhibited (and confessed to) by otherwise normal people. From hilarious bathroom behavior, funny money routines, and unconventional clothing habits to eating and sleeping peculiarities, germ-a-phobia, and more. Everyone has at least one oddity in his or her daily way of life. Reiser documents the zany traits that make us who we are.
Just what extremes do people go to in their everyday activities?
•Flipping through a magazine at a newsstand then reaching for a fresh copy to buy because the one they were flipping through is no longer new.
•Enumerating (1, 2, 3...) while urinating and trying to end their peeing on an even number.
•Eating the most expensive part of a meal first, just in case they can’t finish everything.
•Ironing the newspaper before reading it to protect themselves against germs.
•Wearing T-shirts an equal number of times so none of them will get offended.
You will laugh while gaining insight into yourself and others!
People do the darndest things!
