OCD M&M eater...

Does anyone else eat their M&M's in an OCD way?
I grab a handful & look at the colors.
Then I line them up by number & color.
Then I take out the odd ones (so there is an even amount of each color) & eat them!
Then I take out one line of colors at a time & eat them. Until I am left with just one line of colors.
Then I eat each M&M one by one until they are gone.
Am I crazy or is this a natural phenomenon in humans?

Still love your blog! This one made me laugh. I do sort my m&m's, but differently. I usually sort them by color, and eat the ones that have only one or two of their kind. The ones with a larger amount I will save, and then I alternate them every-other-color. I usually make sure the color I like best is at the end ... green or light brown. It's strange what we do!?

As a person who is usually obsessive about the order in which I do things you'd think I'd eat my M&Ms a certain way, but I don't. I eat what I grab first but I think I'm the odd man out on this one.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you're crazy on this one. :) Just kidding! I know other people who eat their M&Ms this way. Didn't you say Syd does? Nature or Nurture? :)

I don't think I have time to be particular with my M&M's as I stuff them into my mouth.... :)

I don't line them up, but I definitely tend to eat them so there are even numbers (if in my handful I see 2 red, 3 blues, and 4 yellows, I'll eat the extra yellows and blues so there are 2 of each before I start in on the red).
Hmm, now I think I'm crazy.
