It seems that for every man, there is an annoying secret habit that accompanies him. I swear I'm telling the truth!! It's just a matter of time before a girl discovers it. For example, my ex-fiance used to chew on his toenails!!
Strange and disgusting, but totally true! He's the only man I have dated who did this, but he did it. Unfortunately, his disgustingly annoying secret habits didn't end there. He only brushed his teeth once a day. Sometimes I wouldn't kiss him until he had brushed his teeth. He didn't see what the big deal was. I sure did. Gross!!
I have dated a few men who collected comic books and lied about it. I don't know which is worse, the collecting comic books or the lying about it. One of my college boyfriends refused to tell me where he had been all afternoon until I dug it out of him. He went downtown to a comic book store. And there I was thinking he had been doing something wrong or bad. Why wouldn't he want to tell me? Our conversation could have gone like this:
D-Hey, so what'd you do with yourself today?
J-I went shopping downtown.
D-Really? What were you shopping for?
J-Books and stuff.
D-Find anything good?
J-Yeah, a few.
D-What did you get?
D-Cool. Which ones do you read?
Then a few years later I was the one collecting comic books, so it wasn't any great sin in my book. I got really into Anime. I grew up watching Speed Racer and then went on to collect Bubblegum Crisis, Ranma 1/2 and got into Sandman. The especially embarrassing one was Dirty Pair which I loved the most.
A lady was telling me last night about a boyfriend she had who always wanted Wednesday night to himself. Well, his secret habit was a little bit more than annoying. Wednesday night was reserved for having phone sex with a girl he had known since grad school. She said he also had alot of single male habits that he engaged in frequently. I'm not sure I wanted to know that much. I'll take the dirty fingernails.
Hmmm...do all people have annoying habits? I suppose they do. I don't like to do dishes. I'll leave dishes in the the sink for days because I grew up in a house with spiders not roaches. When I lived in New York and South Carolina I was on top of the dishes because there were roaches to spare.
