My Quirky Aberration We kiss goodnight and close the light; just moments pass, and he is snoring! Why is this brain of mine still bright with thoughts- oh my, this is so boring! The same old process I go through- once snuggled in, my mind's exploring those things that I forgot to do, like lock the door and pull the drapes; turn off the plugged-in crockpot too. This isn't fair, and I go apes in second-guessing what I've done- full yes or no somehow escapes! So from my comfy bed, I run without the slightest hesitation- to find at last, that I'd missed none! Now, back to bed- this aggravation- for sure's my quirky aberration! Sandra M. Haight ~3rd Place~ Contest: Quirky Tercets Sponsor: Nina Parmenter Judged: 05/03/2019

Love this and I am this person from time to time in certain situational designs. You amused me, thank you. From snoring to wondering if the back door is really locked, the oven off - you "Erma Bombecked" me to joy! Just excellent. CayCay

Haha, this is me Sandra! Head down. Whisper to husband “did you lock the backdoor?” Him: “think so.” Me: shuts eyes. Me (half hour of mental wrangling later): “Gotta check!” Lol! Also I usually start my engine then get out of my car at least once to check the front door when I go out! Very nicely done and form spot on of course! :x)

I feel ya! As soon as his head hits the pillow he's off to blissful slumber... And I am thinking and thinking and overthinking! I quite like the mention of the crockpot!
