M&M OCD Rainbow (011/366)

2012_01_11 14-04-27_626w
“The neurosis in which the search for safety takes its clearest form is in the compulsive-obsessive neurosis. Compulsive-obsessive to frantically order and stabilize the world so that no unmanageable, unexpected or unfamiliar dangers will ever appear.”

Abraham Maslow (American Philosopher and Psychologist, 1908-1970)

TIME:  about 2:45 PM
PLACE:  Work

I took this photo with my phone camera.  Yes, I arrange my M&Ms by color.  I ate the brown ones first (as you can see, they are not in the picture).  Then, I eat any extraneous colors.  For example, there were 12 orange and 15 yellow M&Ms, so I ate 3 orange ones and 6 yellow ones so that they would be even with the 9 green M&Ms.  Since the red and blue M&Ms were on each end like bookends, the fact that there only 6 of each was not a problem.  Finally, I ate a row of M&Ms from each end…for example: a row of red and blue; a row of red and blue; a row of orange and green (3 times), then finally the yellow ones in the middle.  That didn’t sound too obsessive-compulsive, did it?
