Super(stitious), Thanks For Asking

I've become either quite superstitious, or I have a mild case of OCD. I haven't decided just yet. Perhaps you can help. Here's the list, laugh if it makes you feel better.
  • If the electronic gizmo in use has a volume meter, it must be set at an even number. No number? I count clicks or bars shown on the screen.
  • When leaving my apartment, I check to make sure I locked the door securely. I shake the doorknob five times. No more, no less.
  • The last time I picked up a coin showing the 'tails' side was in the sixth grade. As soon as I did, a baseball hit me in the eye. Haven't done it since.
  • After making a purchase, I count my remaining cash seven times. Seven. What is wrong with me?
  • I hate to see a loaf of bread stored upside down and must immediately unwrap, rewrap, and put it back.
I chalk that last one up to Italian superstition; the others just make me seem crazy.

    I think we all have our little things. I have to have all my CD's and DVD's in order.
