About a year ago I first disclosed my wife’s CDO (that’s OCD only in alphabetic order as it should be). She’s funny about a lot of things including the slots on the screws for switch covers. I think I bring something to the OCD table too though. I must have an even number of eggs in the egg carton and they must be distributed in a symmetric pattern in the carton.
Most mornings I cook eggs for Emily and Abigail. They usually each eat 2 eggs which works in nicely with my OCD needs. Sometimes, however, Emily will have used an odd number of eggs in something she cooks. On those days, Emily and Abigail split 5 eggs instead of 4. An odd number will not abide in my house!
It’s a little crazy but on odd eggs days, I will stop what I am doing and cook something to make it work. I cannot sleep until it is made right. Does anyone else share my egg issues? Do you have anything even remotely similar about which you obsess?
