Going over bridges, I notice how many other cars and especially big trucks are going to be on the bridge with me, and sometimes I try to speed up or slow down so as to minimize the total weight while I’m on the bridge. I’m not sure if this last is a tic or just comes from knowing too much about the current state of very poor maintenance of our bridges here in the US. =)]]>
My son can’t stand having the car stereo volume on anything that isn’t a multiple of 5. It gets really annoying because sometimes 10 is too quiet and 15 is too loud.
I don’t hand-write in my head, but I do fingerspell in my head, using sign language. Sometimes I’ll actually do the fingerspelling with my fingers. I’m not deaf and I don’t know any deaf people, but I learned some sign language when I was a kid.]]>
Rusty, I crack my knuckles AND count stairs (though not necessarily at the same time). I at least like to know whether the number of stairs is odd or even, because that determines whether or not I should skip the first step when ascending.
Taking stairs two at a time is more comfortable for me. If there are an even number of steps and I start on the first step, by the time I reach the top I will have taken one more step than was strictly necessary. Waste not, want not!]]>
I’m really happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Teurets syndrome is the best tic of all time! of all time!]]>
