I Wonder …

if people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder obsess because  the letters OCD aren’t in alphabetical order?

    I’m obsessive, but I’m not compulsive. If I hadn’t been obsessive, I couldn’t have written three books in a row with no break. I HAD to write a chapter a week or die in the attempt.

    The out-of-order letters don’t bother me, but I despise road signs with misspellings or poor grammar. The South is full of restaurants advertising “Sunday Buffet’s.”

    I have no idea. And the poor woman is everywhere!

    There are also signs in yards: The Funderburks’, The Mills’. Plural, people – not possessive!!!!!!!

      I have trouble with apostrophes’ when I get to writing too fast, so I have to sympathize. Blogging has maade me paranoid so check my work more frequently than I used to, but I still slips’ up.

        LOL! But I know you would be careful if you were putting up a sign. Everyone slips up on blogs and Facebook statuses (or status’).

          A sign in one of our local parks:

          Please keep your dog’s on a leash.

          Seriously.

          So, dear readers, perhaps we ought to keep our blog and Facebook comma’s on a leash as well? 🙂

      Well, of course she’s everywhere. Not everyone can live in Margaritaville.

      And I have to admit that after locking my keys in my car yesterday for the second time in the last six months, I am going to be extending my compulsion to check that I do indeed have my keys in my purse before I hit autolock to a full-fledged obsession with not exiting the car without my keys in my fat little hand.

        For all those too possessed by their obsession to comment, thank you, Gayle, for solving the problem.

          Have you seen how clunky Dodge Caravan keys are, Laura? I’m afraid I would look like one of those National Geographic women with that monstrosity hanging from my ear. No, I need a car with a keyless lock. Of course that would necessitate my tattooing the number somewhere on my person.

        I’m not sue we should laugh at the obsessively afflicted … or maybe we should say (A)fflicted (W)ith (O)bsessions … wait, that should be (A)fflicted (O)bsessions (W)ith.

        Man, this devolves reeee-lllly fast!

            You need to go to page 316 paragraph 2 line 4 of the book “Don’t Mess With Crazy People” to see the scientific proof of my statement above.

            And please….no “flashing” here….this is a family friendly blog. 🙂
