World of the OCD

People enjoyed laughing at Adrian Monk
  And his obsessive/compulsive disorder
Now I'll open the lid, come out of the trunk
  I'll be a neat freak for my life's remainder

Like Mr. Monk, I can't tolerate a mess
  Just one speck of dust and I must act quickly
With perpetual cleaning I am obsessed
  I've a terrible fear of growing sickly

Neighbors call me the original "white glove"
  But behind my back, I think they're mocking me
I'm paranoid too, not a trait I'm proud of
  So welcome to my world of the OCD

Entry for Francine Robert's Tell Us Something We Didn't Know contest

    oh, Diane, we could move into together and be FElix and that other guy, the Odd Couple.hahaha. I am the messy girl who couldn't care less about a little dirt; however,I am a bit OCD when it comes to my obsession here at Soup!! (and everything else I love doing, I can't make myself stop!!!) My son is the same way. He has to count to 100 sometimes before he does certain things!!

    I think I'm getting MORE like this! One thing I can't stand is things which aren't straight! Light & Love

    Many congratulations on your contest wins - I've just noticed more results : ) Jack. I'm obsessive about checking hotel beds for bedbugs after a nasty experience in a hotel once.

    I don't in any way fit this white glove syndrome Diane. I'm a bit untidy. Smile. Good luck in the contest. Thanks for your comments. Yes there are things in life a lot more important than worrying about money. Agape, Moses

    Always got a kick out of Detective Monk, Diane. He could have been a member of my family. LOL White glove syndrome is a genetic trait, as you well know. Love, Carolyn
