I'm contagious

If you live with someone with OCD, can you catch it? Clinically, I'm sure the answer is no, but I've seen some familiar behaviors coming out of my fiancè.

He's been telling me for several months that my craziness has been rubbing off on him, but I hadn't seen it for myself -- until today.

Tom goes to school full time and has two part-time jobs. When he comes home from school, he has about 5-10 minutes at home until he goes off to work. Today, as he hurriedly walked through the kitchen on his way out the door, he straightened a few things that were on the countertops. I didn't say anything.

Now if I can only get him to have it with REAL cleaning...



To make this even stranger, I think my French bulldog, Norman, has it, too.

I think my cats are autistic!

Does it start out as "nervous energy?" Sometimes I do that when I'm in a hurry. Uh oh, maybe I have it too!

My (small) dog is bi-polar, and a serial chair humper, does that count.

I think we're all nuts.
