confessions from a closet obsessive complusive

So Aaron is always pointing out my weird, obsessive, usually organizational quirks. Like needing to have the the fronts of the shirts hanging on hangers all facing the left. He got used to that one.

On Tuesday, however, I learned that Aaron is a closet obsessive compulsive. I brought home a bag of assorted chocolate candy and left it by him to tempt him to eat it. When I came home, I found that a lot of the Almond Joys were missing. Naturally, I asked Aaron if he loved Almond Joys. He said that he didn't especially love them.

That's when the truth came out.

He confessed that when eating assorted chocolate candy, he has this desire to keep the colors balanced. His candy of choice was Hershey's, but he found that the bag was lacking brown and was heavy on the blue, so he had to eat some Almond Joys. You can see how this then spread to eating more Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kat's as well.

I think it was all a ploy so he could eat lots and lots of chocolate.


  1. Aaron and I must be kindred spirits. I have to line all the candy up according to color and then the colors each take turns being eaten so that there is always a balance.

    Also, Nat is not allowed to fold certain clothing items because he cannot manage to do it to my slightly obsessive satisfaction. I used to use a little cardboard guide while I was folding onesies in order to make sure that they are all the same size. I no long need the guide, that's how good I am.

  2. Can I buy you this?

    Isn't that all you'd need to transform you separate computer and large TV without the TV into a large TV attached to a computer that has TV?
