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.
