I know it makes me weird. It makes me weird, and I am powerless to change. Are you ready for what I am about to reveal?
I absolutely hate the "time's up" beeping of a microwave. I will go out of my way in order to push the button to open the door with one second left on the timer. Why is this? I really don't know. This is a part of myself that at once fascinates and repulses me.
It should also be noted that I am not a big fan of cell phone rings, either. My phone is just about always on silent unless I know for a fact that I will be receiving an important phone call in the near future.
Perhaps life as a music major has sensitized my ears to noise? Or, my propensity towards music has sensitized my ears towards cacophony in general? I suspect that it is the second option because even as a child, I would rush towards the microwave as it counted down those last few seconds.
That's about it for today. I imagine everybody has mundane things that bother them as well. What are some of yours?
