A day late, because I didn't feel like doing this yesterday. And for some reason I'm having a hard time thinking of quirks... (I should have saved the "I drink coffee with Coffeemate" one for this category)

1. I don't kill spiders.
2. I never mix milk from a new carton with some from a nearly empty one (my mother taught me this - probably dates from getting milk fresh from a dairy, which she did as a child)
3. I kiss my hand to a magpie if I see one.
4. I often inadvertently refer to more than one sheep as "sheeps" - this was a family joke, dating to a foster-child we had at one time who did that. I get some funny looks.

It never occurred to me to mix the milk! Although I used to work at a restaurant that made us spend the time between meals pouring old ketchup in with new. Yuck.

And spiders are our friends! Who else eats moths?

My partner always says "Good morning, Mr. Magpie" (or good afternoon/evening) whenever he sees a lonesome bird. Apparently there's no need to be polite to magpies in the plural.

And who kills spiders?

Yes, I think the hand kissing is to a single magpie - to ward off the "sorrow"

spiders? I know! My mum always taught me it was bad luck, but some people hate them and will kill them on sight.
