A Strange Habit

I have this strange habit
But it’s not so strange at all
Everyone’s got a few of them
Some even have got them all
Molly counts her steps while walking
Terry crosses her fingers while talking
Joey cuts and then sniffs his toenails
Louie, every hour, checks his emails
Harry likes to sleep with his socks on
Jerry likes to wake up before dawn
This is just to name a few
I know you’ve got some of them too
Maybe you like to smell old books
Or every minute check your looks
Maybe you like to tap your feet
Or maybe you just like to keep things neat
You can have them all
Or you can have just one
I’m sure you’d find
No man with none
One strange habit that I have got
I like to observe strange habits a lot

  1. Ha! I love it!! Totally true. I’ve got some odd habits myselfvut I figure… they aren’t REALLY so bad, considering, as you say, we’ve all got little (or sometimes big) quirks. Great poem, made me smile.

  2. I enjoy observation, as a part of my natural curiosity. And now, disclosure: I rinse dishes off, before putting them in the washing sink. I put like coloured shirts and pants on the same hanger, facing outward in the closet.
