Unnatural Urges

Compulsions of the foulest and most obscene kind!

Today, for reasons I know not, I had the irresistible urge to... clean my stove. I suppose it needed it. Took me long enough, anyway. And when I say "clean," I mean clean: burner grates in the dishwasher, knobs removed and scrubbed, every surface scrubbed, the dee-luxe treatment. It is now as clean and bright as new, and will stay that way for, oh, a day perhaps. Maybe less 'cuz I'm going to make some chili tonight.

I try to resist such OCD shenanigans. Today I failed.

Sounds like you are going stir crazy. Next you'll be cleaning the base boards....

Sorry, I don't do base boards.

Windows sometimes. Every couple of years, whether they need it or not.
