A little of this and a bit more

Alan Crawford presents twisted short and some longer stories for adults, with quite a number of his rants and observations as well.

Several curious people, really it’s just one, asked me how or where the ideas came from. Thankfully there’s no clear answer. When the trousers, mind, or weather conditions suit such things, the computer opens, a page appears, and it starts to flow. All designed to promote my nonsense, which may be adult in nature but not necessarily mature.

I Sure have obsessive compulsive disorder

Reading Time: 2 minutesIt’s official, I sure have a rampant case of obsessive compulsive disorder ( OCD ) and even though I look and sometimes sound a bit normal, I’m definitely not. Those who are exposed to my excessive behaviour normally placate me and allow me to run free without restraint. These well meaning but deluded folk probably feel that letting me run like a pony though life will keep me calm, but alas I’m getting worse and I need reigning in. Maybe a swift kick in the ribs as well.

This tremblingly excited need I have for symmetry, alignment, perfection ( even though I hardly ever achieve it ) drives me to a knife edged level of frustration when it doesn’t materialise. You would laugh at how silly it gets sometimes, you should see me trying to be a handyman, even though I strongly resist most of the time, sometimes I weaken and attempt a simple process only to find that I don’t have the temperament, skill, shirts, tools, desire or genetic make up to complete this simple task.

Tantrums erupt, clothes become restrictive, tools fly and so does the colourful language and I don’t mean praising the warmth of the surroundings either. Foul, rude, crude, imaginative, multi syllable, blasphemous, all with a full forced sputum retching engagement from a naughty OCD sufferer.

So what am I going to do? Well, how’s about I relax, leave the handyman shit alone, I’ll get a messy influence, oops – I have one of those in my beloved bride. So I’ll just keep myself under control, leave the friendly folk that support me without restraint to continue to do so and I learn to enjoy the tightening of my disorder as it constricts around my daily life.

Does anyone have the number of a home handyman helpful helper ?

Try being OCD and being married to a spouse who is the exact opposite. Grrr! Creates an interesting dynamic. There’s nothing wrong with a little touch of OCD, but how many times can you check to make sure you turned off the curling iron? Come on honey!

LMAO… I remember the day you were asking me if I knew how to center stuff. I knew there was more to it than a causal comment.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
