6. Long phone call = pacing around the entire house.

7. You procrastinate when getting into the shower, but hate getting out once you're in.

8. You spell out Wednesday like Wed-nes-day in your head when you're writing it. Also Feb-ru-ary.

9. You get lost in thought while reading, but don't notice until you're three pages past where you stopped paying attention.
