    I had to outgrow it eventually. When I was little..really little...I would wake up and I would go to my parents room just to see if they were ..safe.. odd for a child..When I saw them asleep I would go back to bed and sleep..one sister knew and never told..

    I count things, like my steps when I am walking and I have to end on an even number.  I've done it as long as I can remember. I do it a lot less, but every once in a while I catch myself counting as I walk.

      I find myself doing this and will laugh when I catch myself. Invariably I find I'm counting stairs as I go up and down especially if I visit my childhood home!

    rather embarrassingly, I'm still afraid of the dark, and I'm kind of glad my daughter needs to have a light on at night. Nowhere near as bad as when I was younger, but still bad...

      We have a light on the landing, and there are windows above the bedroom doors where the light comes in. If you can't write a constructive comment, don't bother.

    If I eat Oreo cookies (which isn't often) or peanut-butter/cheese-cracker sandwiches (which is more often) I absolutely have to separate both sides of the "sandwich", eat one plain, eat the Oreo filling or peanut-butter "sheet" separately, and then eat the second half plain.  I wouldn't want either an Oreo cookie or a peanut-butter cracker sandwich at all if I had to approach either of them by leaving them assembled and blending the filling with the cookie/cracker part.

    I love watching cartoon shows and till now, I am still watching them.

    I guess it is the joy I get from watching cartoon shows. So, I am not bored with it.

    I am still shamelessly picking my nose, sometimes even in public.

    And even if someone notices, I just stop for a while until noone is watching.

    When I enter a floor with tiles on it, I tend to favour a certain imaginary path on those tiles, and walk on it, carefully avoiding the tiles that don't fall in my 'path'! I need to stop doing that big_smile

    At 49, I still cut my meat (steak, porkchop, chicken breast, etc.) up into nice bite sized pieces AND trim away every single bit of fat, or gristle, etc. that I see off of it before I start eating.  I don't like to cut up meat as I eat.  If a piece of meat looks especially undesirable (that red vein you will sometimes see in chicken), I will stick it under my plate or wrap it in my napkin so I don't have to look at it.

    Yes, several in fact. I still sleep with a Teddy Bear (hey, at least he doesn't snore!) and I usually fall asleep by making up stories in my head.  Also, while in the doc's office waiting on the table, I count floor and ceiling tiles. I'm a child at heart and I REFUSE to completely grow up ;-)
