Question of the Day

What quirk or habit do you have about which you imagined you were the only person on the planet with it, until you found someone else who has/does it, too?

I could probably come up with dozens of these, lol, but the first one that came to mind is pulling (trichotillomania). For years, most of my adolescence, I thought I was the only person in the world who did this—such the secret shame, lol!—and was very relieved when I found out I was not.

Weirdness* loves company way more than misery, methinks.

* (which I use without implied negative connotation)
