In WEIRD, a young kid about the age of 11 walks up to a chair discreetly. After a moment he sniffs the seat of the chair and coughs.
Melvin: I’m a strange kid. I’ve always done strange things but it started a year ago when I suddenly sniffed my Grandpa’s work chair. I don’t know why I did it. I sort of knew it would smell funky, but I did it anyway, out of curiosity. You see, I know it was strange to think it and probably more strange to act on my thought but I find it hard to contain these strange urges.
Like, a month later, I found myself having the habit of licking my palms. Every hour. No matter what I was doing. It was like an alarm bell sounded in my brain and I had to lick each palm once with my tongue or else something inside of me wasn’t getting satisfied.
Another time, I found myself cleaning my ears with a Q-Tip, sniffing and touching the tip with my tongue…habitually. That lasted for two weeks.
Oh, please, I don’t mean to gross you out. But you see, I know it’s weird. I’m a weird kid. I get it. I don’t know why I’m weird. Are there things that you do that are weird, too?
