Long time ago a letter appeared in the newspaper advice column from an uncle complaining about the way his very young nephew would eat his meal: first all the meat, then all the potatoes, then all the vegetables, then his dessert. The uncle ranted about it in his letter and asked why couldn’t his nephew eat like a normal person, meaning take a bite of meat, then a bite of potato, then a bite of vegetable in random order. I think the reply from the advice columnist was for the uncle to let it go and just be glad the boy was eating his food instead of being a picky eater, and for crying out loud, kids have enough problems without having to be scolded for eating in his own unique way.
It dawned on my that I sometimes eat like that, only I’d start with eating my potatoes. I wouldn’t move on to anything else until I finished my potatoes. Then the veggies, then the meat, then the dessert.
Must be a sign of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
Anyone else here have unusual eating habits?
