My posts are based on emotions/mental drama and anguish while introducing you to some books bearing the same or closely related titles/themes. The letter for today boys and girls is C!
C is for Compulsion
I have to count the corners of the table or the number of items on a shelf. I find myself sitting aimlessly counting the number of tiles on the floor or the number of pictures on a wall. Sometimes I count the number of people in a picture.
I know a square has four sides but you guessed it, I even count those! It is quite bizarre. This need, this compulsion to count.
I don't remember when it started or why I am compelled to do it. But I cannot stop! Even as I write these words I occasionally stop to count the number of panels on the door or the number of doors on the built-in-wardrobe or the number of recessed lights in the ceiling.
I am Gollum and counting is my precious!
Compulsion On the Bookshelf
But what if the magic doesn't stay?
What if the numbers never leave?
