I use it as a joke line now and then, but it’s actually the truth. A friend of mine started pointing out to me that I had OCD, and I used to always answer; I’m obsessive, but I don’t have OCD. One day I asked myself, do I always answer that way? Do I have to answer that way?

Holy crap. I have OCD.

Suddenly, my mind flooded with stories from my entire life about how obsessive I have always been.
