Quirk of Habit

Which quirky habit annoys you the most, and what quirky habit do you love — in yourself, or others.

Hmm… My own habits. The one that annoys me is me artificially extending sentences with words such as “so…” when there really isn’t another part to the sentence. I don’t know why I do it. I know someone else uses the phrase “sort of” too often, when it’s not “sort of” something, it definitely is.

I don’t think I really have too many habits. I have routines but nothing I’d really call a habit in the sense of doing it subconsciously. I stroke my chin when I’m worried about things or nervous, if that counts?

More so when I’m abroad rather than at home, I’ll fold cash differently for storage.  I don’t really know why considering I’m not blind and can see the numbers, but I started doing it and it stuck.  I think it made it easier in the US with $1 bills which I left unfolded and folded all the others.

I also don’t really notice habits in other people. I more notice quirks as alluded to in the title. Things like always starting the takeaway before it’s even reached the table, colour coding, obsessive ironing, how people say things (not necessarily accent or sentence structure, just how they say things) playing with their hair and what sort of things they wear.

I think it’s those little things that make people special.

Talk about it,
You dream about it,
You feel that there’s no place left to glow.
Operatics, break the habits.
You feel that there’s no place left to grow,
You gotta reach inside yourself and let it go.
