Booger Check!
Published on Friday, February 22, 2013 by

Day 22 of the blog writing challenge brings us “compulsively.”


Check my text messages.

Did I lock the door?

Do I have a booger?

Wear only velor.

Time to wash hands.

Don’t step on a crack!

Can I miss ONE post?!??

Compulsiveness.  What do I do compulsively?  Not much, really.  When adsense was big, I would check that compulsively.  Every time I walk out of a public restroom, I check my shoe for toilet paper.  Compulsive?   TECHNICALLY, I am KNOWN for walking out of public restrooms with a TP train… so maybe I get a pass on that one.

When I sneeze, I do a tiny sign of the cross with my finger… yea, that not only is compulsive, it is kinda crazy.  Oh!  And I hold my breath when I drive over a state border.  AND I do “Popeye!” and kiss my hand, then touching it to the top of my car when I see a vehicle without a headlight.  Well, it DOES add another year of life to your car, you know.

Apparently, there is a fine line between old wives tales, superstition, compulsiveness and INSANITY.


I am completely insane.

  • Katherine, um, you’re a little odd. But then aren’t we all?

  • I lift my feet when driving over train tracks. All my cups have to face in the same direction when I place them in the cupboards (handles to the right). Actually, I’m going to end the list there. Let’s just say that if you are completely insane, you are not alone. 🙂

  • You might be completely insane, but you’re in good company. 😉

  • Oh no, when you see a one-headlamped car you call “padiddle” and get a kiss from the cute guy that is also supposed to be in the car with you…

  • No…never could you be considered insane. Beside people that are actually insane thing they are 100 percent normal. BTW..I think maybe you do have a booger.

    “When I sneeze, I do a tiny sign of the cross with my finger… yea, that not only is compulsive, it is kinda crazy. ”

    No, that’s not crazy at all because I went to Catholic school and that’s what we told to do after we sneezed 🙂

    One of my compulsions (which I have many) is checking my emails a million times a day; reading them; and then deleting them, because I can’t stand having my email box full of emails.


  • i just think the picture you chose is just perfect. Not that I know anything about compulsions. Nope. Nothing at all….

  • I’ve never heard of making a cross after a sneeze. Learn something new every day.

    Insane? Insanity is running rampant in this challenge, so like Ziva said, you’re in good company. 😉

  • Mel

    Hahaha…not Catholic but I’m gonna try that sneezing thing just for grins!

  • Insane? Right there with you, Katherine!

  • Join the insanity! 🙂

  • Did I lock the doors… I know that one. But I always worry it’s my car and that I didn’t lock it. I usually have though.

  • Katherine? Seek help. Can I come, too? I’ll bring my lucky glove and touch every lamp-post on the way. Roth x

    You can’t be completely insane if you know you’re insane. Just sayin’…

    A sign of the cross every time you sneeze? I wonder how many people do this on a daily basis. God must never be able to get anything done because people are always evoking the Trinity. I just imagine God sitting down to a pastrami sandwich, but never being able to eat it. “Oh, great, Katherine sneezed again. Yes, Katherine, you’re blessed now.”

  • Sounds completely NORMAL to me!

    “And I hold my breath when I drive over a state border.”

    Me too!
