My personal brand of insanity...

What is the definition of insanity?  The answer, the way I've heard it said, is "Trying the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome."

What's my definition of insanity?
  • Talking to my African violet plant as if it can understand me.  Someone has to encourage it to grow up big and strong and beautiful.
  • Making sure there are no wrinkles in the bed sheets before I get in
  • Straightening pictures on the wall of the doctor's office
  • The absolute need I have to know which route we're going to take when someone else is driving.  I just need a little piece of information about the planned route so I can have the map in my head or else I cannot just sit back and relax.
  • I can read a book cover to cover, then pick it up and read it cover to cover again
  • And speaking of books, I make it my mission to pick out editorial "oopsies" in published works.  There are A TON of them!  Seriously people - get a better editor or at least remember to use spell check once in a while!  And don't even get me started on the Kindle version of books; the formatting errors are many and laughable!
  • I still sleep with a blankie
Ok - so I suppose those aren't really definitions of insanity - but they sure do help explain me better!  Stay tuned - you never know what will show up here!
