1. A structural or behavioral characteristic peculiar to an individual or group.

I have one that I’m not sure anyone else really thinks about. Tomorrow I’m leaving on a trip for a few days and will be back on Sunday. Even though this is only a short period of time, it is essential for me to clean up everything in my living quarters so that when I return, it’s perfectly neat and clean. A one night leave doesn’t require that this happen but anything over 2 is a must. I think it has to do that when I return I don’t want to have to worry about anything being out of place because most likely my mind will be somewhere other than how clean my room is.

Just a few that come to mind:

  • I won’t dry off with a smelly towel
    I don’t wear bright colors
    I won’t wear pant khakis with anything but a dress shirt (golfing is an exception)
    Milk can only be drank out of the carton
  • I could turn this into a lengthy post but I don’t have the time. I’m sure everyone has their own quirks which is actually perfectly normal therefore contradicting it being peculiar. So it goes.
