I think we have done this before, but why not another go around. I have to sleep on the left side of the bed. I cannot sleep unless its on the left. :P

But either side of the bed can be the left or right side. Beds don't have the bilateral symmetry that would make it consistently clear. Suppose you're lying on your back, then roll over onto your stomach. Left and right have changed sides.

I like to put my teeth into people's beer glasses when they aren't looking. Actually I only ever do that to Jimmy, because it freaks him out completely.

If I accidentally trip over or step on my cats or the shelter cats I apologize. This sometimes entails following them to the spot they've selected to feel sorry for themselves and cooing at them.

Cats that know me (mine) no longer run from me when these accidents happen. Some of the shelter cats (those who've been there for awhile) also know about this. It's the new ones that I must make sure they know I'm not mad, just clumsy.

I also have to have the bed made before I can climb into it. I can't get in and just pull up the blankets. That's wrong. It must be made correctly (tag at the bottom, pillow's fluffed, etc)

I don't care which side of the bed- so long as I am closest to the door!

Also I don't like to site with my back to the door.

I don't walk under ladders witout crossing my fingers and if I see one magpie on it's own I say 'hello Mr Magpie' don't want bad luck!!

Sleep on the right side of the bed and have done so for 30 years....even if I stayed in a hotel when away on a course.
How about never opening an umbrella in the house. If you're walking with someone and are split up by a tree or pole, you say bread and butter so the two of you will not fight/get into an arguement later. Don't put your hat on the bed. Also (picked this up from my Grandmother) you put a coin on the frame above the front door of your home (inside) so there will always be money in the house......

Not for me, they're my teeth...and Jimmy never wants his beer after I do that.

Me too, and Mrs. Rev. I think a lot of people with pets do that.

I like to put pennies on top of doors so when people open the door, pennies fall on them.

No shortage of humor around here anyway. When I was around 5 years old, I had a fairly large piggy bank full of pennies. It might not sound like much, but back than, they might as well have been hundred dollar bills. My father told me that if I planted the pennies, money trees would grow. This was my first and last foray into the world of high risk finance. I waited for the trees to start growing, nada..not even a budge in the earth, which made it impossible to know where the pennies were, because I did not mark my plantings. It was one of my brothers that finally told me the truth, "money does not grow on trees" I buried some of my fathers lurers in the back yard, when he found out, he took me out for a big piece of boston creme pie...our favorite :P Except now it would be a faux pas to much fat

I don't generally admit this to folks, but both my wife and I are among those goofy people who refer to ourselves, when talking to the cat, in terms of "Mom" and "Dad"......

Really Ten Packs? Intersting. I never would have thought it. I refer to myself as the slave...or Their devoted follower. I hate to think what my cats call me behind my back.......

I often hear them whispering to each other while passing sideways glances at me. I think they may actually be planning something......something bad.......j/k

yes, we are devoted followers of our cats too. my youngest (cat that is) is referred to as our children's sister. the cat loves it, but the kids can barely tolerate it.....grrrrr. besides, i like her better, she doesn't talk back, eats whatever i put in front of her and cleans the bathroom after having a bath! she also thinks i'm pretty cool and follows me everywhere. sigh. another faithful devotee. something like pea
