6 Weird Things

I tried to come up 6 weird things about me, as requested, but they were all scary (my fear of flying is increasing as I age, and I don't scrape ice off my car windows but instead only make a little porthole to see out of). So here is the most non-traumatic-to-myself-or-others weird thing I can think of about myself:

I get really bad static electricity when the air is dry, particularly if I'm wearing wool, which I often am, since I KNIT. Sometimes when I go to open my car door I get shocked so badly it makes me drop my keys. Because of this, I am paranoid about opening doors with metal handles. If I'm with Brian I make him open doors for me - not to be polite, but to save me from getting zapped. I will often hesitate in front of a door, steeling (ha) myself to open it. I think that people must think I'm obsessive-compulsive because I look so weird hesitating before opening a door.

That illustration is too cute--did you create it yourself, or is there a piece of clip art out there just for your affliction?
