I remember reading, somewhere, that picking your nails was, in psychotherapy terms, a “mild form of self-abuse”. In which case, hello, my name is Gordon and I abuse myself.
Hmm that last sentence doesn’t sound quite right.
Anyway, yes I pick my nails, rarely use clippers and yes I tend to do it when I’m bored. Disgusting habit isn’t it.
I also, when needs must, pick my nose, and have occasionally had a good scratch at my arse.
Still here? Excellent.
You see this post is a mild version of what I had planned to post, but the general theme is the same. Bad habits are generally those that are unsanitary or just ‘not very nice’ for other people to witness. However, for the person who has the bad habit, it’s generally not that big a deal.
Like smelling your own farts…
OK, I’ve gone to far, haven’t I. I know what you are thinking. You are wondering what else I’m going to admit to doing. Hell, why not, let’s get it out of the road. I’d like to stress that I’m not constantly walking around, doing these things, they are very much (apart from one I guess) fairly random occurances and not something you could define me by…
Ohhh and Mother, dearest, sorry.
The bad habits of me
- I pick my nails – hands and feet
- I occasionally pick my nose
- I fart (I get this from my Dad)
- I sneeze without covering my mouth
- I talk with my mouth full
I’m sure there are others but I can’t think of any.
OK, your turn, what bad habits do you have?
