I used to be a party animal. LOVED clubbing every weekend (multiple times a week as a student), would dance for hours and laugh and laugh and laugh.

Tonight I am sitting in my cuddle chair putting chewits down my bra to warm them up before I eat them.
I’m home alone.

How life has changed.

Make me feel better, what weird stuff do you do that no one else knows about?!

I don't know very much tbh. You just made me laugh with your chewits grin

I have a secret, shameful love for Fray Bentos pies. I don’t do it often but sometimes if I’m home alone and I know everyone will be out for bit, I go buy one, cook it and eat it. I then dispose of the packaging so no-one will ever know.

I close the gates to the garden so the fairies and little people don't wander into the road. I even go out before I go up to bed, to make sure they are safe.(in theory they could fly out, I know...)

Oh god I read your op as 'things you know', not 'things you do' blush

I have silly conversations with my dog.

Obviously, she can't actually answer me so I speak for both of us.

Sometimes I catch myself doing it when we're out on a walk; thankfully, no one's ever been near enough to overhear me - I live in a relatively quiet place - but it can only be a matter of time before I turn round and there's someone behind me.

I'm mid dinner (on my own) and my back is itching, so I just scratched my back with my fork. I did lick it clean first.

Oh I ALWAYS talk to animals. I don't have my own dog, but often walk my mum's and used to walk another dog for a friend, and I always have a conversation with them as we go. I don't even try to pretend I'm not.

If there's 2 items left on a shelf, that I only need to purchase 1 of - I have to take them both. Can't leave 1, it will get lonely...

I greet my cat when she walks in the room and ask if she's alright when I see her. We all do it in this family lol

Talking to animals is fine, loads of people do that, it's the voice I do for her when she 'answers' me that's the problem and the things she says grin

I sing to my cat. About my cat. At the last count, there are 7 different adapted songs and 4 originals. I may need help...

But Fray Bentos pies are the BEST! The contrast of crispy top, flabby pastry underneath Is truly great. It shouldn't be but it is!

You need backing to create your own musical grin

Absolutely nothing strange about that hmm

I ask my cat whether her dinner was nice after she finishes eating blush

Have Siamese - no need to do the voice, they actually answer grin

I talk for the dog as if she's speaking to me - and she has an American accent.

I have to stop myself from doing it when we have visitors.

Leaving the country now I've admitted how weird I am!

@pigsDOfly - hello my person 🤣

Of course! Don't we all?

My current favourite is to the tune of 'you are my sunshine' to my boy Fergus. " You are my Fergface, my furry Fergface. You make me happy, la la la la. Your furry tum tum, your furry bum bum, please don't take my Fergface away..."

I have a secret love of Fruit Gums. If I’m feeling frivolous I put a large sharing pack in the Tesco order but stash them away.

I don’t like eating them when they’re hard so I put them in the pocket of my jeans to warm up. I may now out them in my bra, inspired by you OP.

My toy mouse has a voice and very strong opinions. He often comments on the tv, or on other drivers. Sometimes I forget that I have the car window down and people give me funny looks.

There are four huge conker trees that I made friends with during lockdown 1 walks. I still pat them every time I pass them now. at least I've stopped hugging them

That sounds perfectly normal to me.

This has made me so happy I can’t even tell you 😂
