365 days Jan. -12 2014– Take Two

I took a picture of the first things I saw,there are two cars parked in my neighbor’s driveway.  I came in and took a picture of  the second thing I saw, they are books on the table.

To write about these two objects and find a connection between them requires some thinking.

The first object is the car. Why do we have a car, the first word that comes to my mind is work. I drive the car to work. The distance between my house and work is several kilometres. I need the car to arrive at my office on time.

There are other things we need to take care of besides work, is to go to the supermarket for groceries. Drive my child to school. Take my kid to watch a movie on occasions. Sometimes I have to take my guest to the airport to get a flight to reach his/her destination.

The second object is a book. Books are essential to get knowledge. We read some for entertainment such as novels and short stories. Some books help us to learn languages. Some we need when buying a new car, these are consumer reports. It tells us about different cars, their performance,the safety features, gas consumption,how many cylinder engine works best and consumes less gasoline.

I’ve mentioned two objects which when we think about  seems to have no connection between them. But after writing about them separately. I do find a connection between them.

DP Daily Prompt: Quirk of Habit


I know someone who had a strange habit. His kids used to make a hole in the butter,when they took some for their toasts.. He’d be annoyed for a few minutes. He’d then take a knife, to smooth the hole. It took him a couple of minutes  to make it smooth,and while doing it he would mumble. “I don’t know why these kids don’t know  how to take out butter to spread on their toast?”

To me this is a quirky habit.

I have several quirky habits,I brush my teeth after every meal. I always feel something is stuck in my teeth. I clip my finger nails short. I cannot bear to have them long.

I dislike writing with a pencil. I think my writing is not clear. I  hear a hissing sound when I write with a pencil.

I’ve watched some people taking out a mirror to see if their hair looks right . They’d  go to the powder room to look at their outfit. They don’t seem to think it’s okay, or oh I have to powder my nose.
