As I sit and write I find myself making all kinds of different sounds and noises. Across the table from me is my partner, the dutch woman who has suffered my outrageous outbursts, jibblings, snufflings, whistles, songs and nasal sounds for decades now.
I must be a very annoying person some of the time. I can see that. Luckily for me she is a tolerant person. She sits there reading her novels each night for a half hour as I tap tap away like a madman.
But I find I can't help myself, especially when I'm writing and researching. Bits of music, classical stuff or old pop song lyrics just filter through whatever barriers my brain puts in place to stop such trivia overtaking my life.
Watch out, here comes a jazzed up Beatles song. With a doowop swing to it. Now my lips are bebopping out some unknown ditty, now I'm whispering out loud.
Do you have annoying little habits that you just find yourself doing? Alone or with other people?
