fucking ocd

So, do you remember how I put all of Kezs letters to me up for sale on Ebay? Well, they sold for $9.77. I thought that was pretty good, and I was happy. As time passed though, I started to have regrets. I started to wonder, What if I need something that was mentioned in one of those letters, like the name of Kezs favorite coffee shop in Pittsburg? I decided that Id better go off to Kinkos and make photocopies, just in case. (“What if” and “Just in case” are two phrases you hear in your head a lot if you have OCD.)

It turns out that Kez (who also has OCD) had started to feel a similar amount of remorse, and perhaps fear, on his end. He was also planning a trip to make copies of all my letters, which he had also sold on Ebay. (If youll recall, this all started with him deciding to auction off his entire Mark Maynard collection in order to save space.) One of us sent the other a note saying what we were planning to do. Somehow, during the ensuing conversation, we decided that wed not only make ourselves a copy of each others letters, but that wed also make a copy for the other person. I said Id make a copy of Kezs letters for him and he said hed do the same for me.

So, the end result of this entire exercise is that both of us will have more paper in our files than we began with. Also, while I made $9.77 on the auction, my bill at Kinkos came out to be $9.33. So, when all is said and done, I cleared 44 cents! And thats before I buy an envelope and send Kez his copies.

I hope this cautionary tale serves as a warning to any kids out there who might be contemplating an anxiety disorder like OCD. I may seem fun now, but just wait till you have to get rid of something.
