Now please excuse me while I go wash my hands.
Ha! I kid. See, that’s funny, because the common misconception is that all people with OCD wash their hands constantly. But that’s irrelevant, because I’m not OCD.
We have two basic types of sippy cups in our house: Lightning McQueen and Toy Story. Like So:
The Lightning McQueen cups came with blue and red lids. The Toy Story cups came with green lids. Last week I grabbed the last clean cup out of the cupboard—a Toy Story cup. Then I grabbed the last lid.
It was red.
I did what any perfectly sane non-OCD person would do.
I washed a green lid.
What? That’s perfectly normal. The green lids go with the Toy Story cups. Do you see any green in the Lightning McQueen cups? I think not! It’s not OCD. It’s a keen eye for coordination!
Shut up. It’s not like I would’ve panicked if I had to use a red lid. I believe we could characterize it as “moderately disturbed.”
If anything, I have Obsessive-compulsive Personality Disorder.
Actually, I don’t know if that’s better or worse, as one of the sub-headings in the OCPD article is “Hoarding.”
Anyway, I had a little chat with Car about proper use of sippy cup lids on Saturday, so I think we’re cool. Y’all can breathe easy. Moderate disturbance averted.
Doesn’t matter anyway. After all, I’m not OCD.
