Now there’s a subject that’s got your attention!! But no, I’m not talking about the sex. On that subject, one of my work mates recently regaled us with the story of her aunt, announcing to her, her mother and several other uncomfortably close relatives for this topic, that she’s never had anal sex on purpose, only by accident!! WTF?? It’s left us all with so many unanswered questions…
Anyway, back to the actual topic at hand: I wouldn’t describe myself as a particularly anally retentive type. Yes, the books on the book case are arranged according to the colour of their spine and yes, my partner often tells me not to inflict my cleaning disease onto him, but really, you only need to look at the state of my desk at work or my house on any given day to know I’m really not meticulous.
However, every day this week when I’ve made the bed, I have cursed the cleaners – how hard is it to put matching pillowcases on our bed?? Seriously. I buy them in pairs. Every one has a partner. They’re all in the cupboard. It cannot be that hard!!! Yes, all the linen is white (is that anal?) but the pillowcases have varying textures and definite pairs. A small thing perhaps, but important to me.
Am I being unreasonable??
