Good evening, my lovely peoples! I've got a silly story for you tonight. Now, I made a promise to myself that I would never talk about work on the blog, but I'm going to make an exception tonight. All names have been changed to protect the
So, Halloween is coming up, and with that comes a plethora of candy. What kind of candy, you ask? DOTS.
Mmm, sugary, colorful, stick-to-your-teeth goodness. Looks good, right? I thought so, too and tore into a box this afternoon.
I give you exhibit A:

Now, as I'm putting this yummy goodness into my belly, my boss (let's call her "Christy", shall we?) walks by my desk and gives me this look that says:
And Christy asks me, "What are you doing?!" And I said, "Nothing!!!" But she's still standing there, waiting for an explanation... and I'm giggling uncontrollably, because that's what I do. And I said, "What? I have to group them by colors before I can eat them. And then if there are not an equal number of dots, I have to eat some of them to even it out." For example, let's re-examine Exhibit A:

See how there's 3 reds, 2 pinks, 1 yellow, 1 orange, and 1 green? Well, the singles are just not allowed, so I have to eat them first because they're ruining the feng shui of the group. Green is the yuckiest, so I have to eat it first and get rid of it. Next comes orange, then yellow. Now, I still have 2 pinks and 3 reds left. So naturally, I have to eat 1 red to even it out. You still following me?
As I'm explaining all this, Christy's face now look likes this:
|Minus the B word, Christy wouldn't say that to me, she's too nice. ;)|
And then, because I'm so flustered that my secret has been discovered, I blurt out: "I do the same thing with M&Ms." Now this is me:
And then Christy calls over our cube neighbor, "Mo Jay", to come document my craziness and take a picture!
Sigh. I guess it was too much to hope that my secret would stay hidden. When you spend 8 hours a day at work, your crazy is bound to come out eventually. I promise we actually do work when we're not creating a photo documentary of my OCD.
But you guys, tell me I'm not the only person who does this? There's gotta be fellow
What weird food habits do you have?
