Everyone has bad habits, right?
Here are some of my bad habits:
--I chew on pens until they are all mangled—and then I chew on them some more.
--I bite my nails (I’ve a bit of an oral fixation, don’tcha think?)
--I pet the cat and then rub cat hair directly into my eye. (This one is not only a bad habit, it’s fun, as well!)
--I routinely spill glasses of water.
--When I’m cleaning, I often go into a “cleaning frenzy” and put objects in unlikely places. (Yes, Iwanski, your contact lens case does belong in the filing cabinet.)
--I walk in the house and dump my work clothes on the floor, two feet from the laundry basket (because IN the laundry basket would be just too easy!)
--I blend my makeup with tissues, but then leave the tissues on the bathroom counter instead of throwing them into the wastebasket directly below the counter. (I apparently have problems putting things into containers!)
--I stack books and magazines on the floor next to the couch, intending to read them, but never getting around to it.
So I’m pretty much a slob.
What are Iwanski’s bad habits? I’m glad you asked!
--He leaves little shaving stubble all over my makeup sponges (although to his credit, he’s working toward changing that habit).
--He freaks out over salmonella (to the extreme).
--He hems and haws over where to eat lunch (this is especially fun if Miss Healthypants is really hungry).
--After taking a shower, he doesn’t push the “stopper” on the faucet down, which makes an annoying “eeeeee!” sound. (Believe me, this is more irritating than it sounds.)
--He chooses Popeye’s chicken over a salad.
--He’s a clutterbug. (Do you know anyone who wants the past 20 years of baseball, basketball, and football preview magazines?)
--He balls up his socks and throws them across the living room, usually at one of the cats. (They love this. So does Miss Healthypants.)
--He reads newspapers and magazines and then leaves them on the floor next to the chair, instead of putting them in the recycling bin.
OK, I guess we’re both slobs.
