Question of the Day

The other day, I was brushing my teeth, and while I was doing so, I was distracted away from the sink. When I returned, I realized I had left the water running, and I felt really bad about it.

See, when I was in elementary school, we saw this educational film (probably on a rainy day when we couldn't go out for recess, and they were trying to keep us occupied) on water conservation. I think our teacher may have given us a little talk afterwards as well. Well, apparently, it made quite the impression on me, because even now I'm rather obsessive about conserving water. (Does anyone even talk about water conservation anymore?) Who would think that such a seemingly insignificant event from my childhood would still be with me now?

So, Shakers... what's a carryover from your very young days that still affects your behavior as an adult?
