It’s a Numbers Game

I love numbers. That’s not to say I love math or am good at math. I enjoyed statistics when I understood it (if you attend college and are struggling with a subject, workshops are the best). I loved algebra, too.

But that’s not what I’m talking about. I specifically love numbers divisible by five. This strikes my husband as weird and he loves to rile me up, which is kind of rude, but totally expected. He’ll put the TV volume at 29 or 32, and that just won’t fly with me.

So, numbers! Any number divisible by five is the name of the game. Television volume, time, and even my order prices. I just had a client who created an offer for $19, and I created a counter-offer for $20. Seriously. Hubby asked me why I was stressing over the offer, and I told him it was because it was $19. The guy accepted the offer, and all was well 😊.

I will stare at a clock that reads xx:59 until it hits xx:00. With numbers not divisible by five, they have to at least match. In high school, I was a straight 7; I wore size 7 jeans, size 7 rings, and size 7 shoes. If I jumped to a 6 or 8 in jeans, I had to adjust my diet until I was back in size 7s. Crazy, huh?

It’s a toss-up whether this is an OCPD (obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, which is different than OCD) thing or an autistic thing or maybe even a Dandy Walker thing. Who knows? I never got the proper treatment for any of those, so it’s anyone’s guess.

What’s something “weird” that you do or obsess over? Answer in the comments!!
