I have a small television in my bedroom. When you adjust the volume, a bar appears on the screen and expands as you turn up the volume. Along with the bar, a number appears, indicating the volume level. Depending on what channel it's on and whether I'm actually watching or just needing some noise to fall asleep to, I normally keep the volume between 20 and 30. But never on 26. Never. I always change it to 25 or 27. Why? Because 26 is a multiple of 13. I also would never leave the volume on 13 or 39. I don't have a problem watching channel 13, or 26, or 39, or 52, etc. But the volume can't come to rest on any of those numbers. Or something bad
Over the weekend, a couple of people informed me that one of the brake lights was out on my car. This may not seem like a big thing. And apparently isn't to some people whom I've almost hit because they have no working brake lights whatsoever. Or turn signals apparently. But, I digress. Anytime a light is out on my car, I have to replace it. Immediately. Until I do, everytime I am driving, it just eats away at me like a buzzard eating away at a carcass in the desert. I think people must think what a loser this guy is to have a light out. Everyone notices it. And they are thinking or talking about it. Trust me. So I went and bought a replacement bulb and put it in yesterday. That's actually about two days longer than I would normally wait.
And lastly, in wintertime, I sometimes like to heat up the clothes I'm going to wear to bed in the dryer for just a couple of minutes before putting them on. (Was it really necessary to indicate that I heat them up before I put them on?) It's actually quite delightful. I suggest you try it. This idea, as many of you may know (or could easily assume), came directly from Seinfeld.

Kramer: "Elaine, you have to feel my pants."
Elaine: "I'll see ya later."
Jerry: "You got your shirt in my oven?"
Kramer: "I didn't have any quarters for the dryer. Anyway, this is better. And it's more convenient."
Jerry: "For both of us."
Kramer: "And I have a lot more control. I have one shirt going for ten minutes, at 325 degrees."
"I know I'll go thru hell, girl, when you find someone else. But right now I'm in heaven, and I can't help myself..."
