•Do you refuse to take the top newspaper on a stack (even if perfect)? •Insist that the toilet paper hang "over"? •Wait for the phone to ring at least twice before answering? •Keep returning to the refrigerator hoping that something new to eat has materialized? Everyone has at least one oddity in his or her daily way of life. In this follow-up to her succesful And I Thought I Was Crazy!, Judy Reiser offers up more outrageous, outlandish and downright ridiculous eccentricities exhibited (and confessed to) by otherwise normal people. From hilarious bathroom behavior, funny money routines, and unconventional clothing habits to eating and sleeping peculiarities, germ-a-phobia, and more, Reiser documents the zany traits that make us who we are. Just what extremes do people go to in their everyday activities? •Flipping through a magazine at a newsstand then reaching for a fresh copy to buy because the one they were flipping through is no longer new. •Eating the most expensive part of a meal first, just in case they can’t finish everything. •Ironing the newspaper before reading it to protect themselves against germs. •Counting while urinating and trying to end on an even number. •Wearing T-shirts an equal number of times so none of them will get offended. You will laugh while gaining insight into yourself and others! People do the darndest things! http://www.judyreiser.com

 


Excerpt

When I go to the bathroom I always count (1, 2, 3...) and try to end my peeing on an even number. I have absolutely no idea why I enumerate while I urinate.
SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER, FEMALE, 52

My socks have to be smiling when I put them in the drawer. When you roll up socks and flip one opening over the other, the little shape that’s formed at the end of the ball looks like a smile. It’s cheerful to open my drawer and see all the socks smiling!
INSTITUTIONAL TEXTILE SALES, MALE, 46



Professional Reviews

Midwest Book Review
"A hilarious collection of odd behaviors that are surprisingly endemic among humankind. Intended for mirth and amusement, yet at the same time absolutely true, Admit It, You're Crazy! and And I Thought I Was Crazy! cheerfully embrace the bizarre little mannerisms and habits that help us cope."

Ed Clancy, Radio Broadcaster
"Judy Reiser's concept of collecting the foibles of Everyman is not only unique, but genius. She invented the category. You will find yourself in her book, and when you do you will laugh out loud."

The New York Times Book Review
"To give her fellow Americans the feeling that they're not alone, as well as a chance to chortle or smirk at others' idiosyncrasies, Judy Reiser has collected some gem-like examples."
