    @(you need an account to see links) I am right there with you... when I get gas for my car, I have been known to take in a big whif of that sweet gasoline smell.

    And I have a few more in no certain order... mostly are food related:

    I love fried Gyoza in Japanese restaurants so if I have extra Gyoza sauce, I drink it right form the little bowl. It embarrasses my husband every single time.

    I eat sour cream on sloppy joes and beef stew.

    I like to smear creamy peanut butter on Cheese Doritos.

    And the worst one to most people... I like to eat ranch dressing with sphaghetti with full on tomatoe sauce.

    and i get really uncomfortable when i don't eat with it, or its dirty and i can't eat with it.
    Oh this reminds me of something I do! Back when frozen yoghurt places where EVERYWHERE, a lot of the stores near me always gave out these blue or pink plastic reusable spoons, some of them with a little frozen yoghurt mascot on the end of the spoon similar to kid's utensils. My household still keeps 4 or 5 of them in our utensil drawer, and if I'm eating something that's either cold or room temp, I HAVE to use one of those spoons. I won't use a metal spoon. I think it's because I don't like the cold metal of the spoon, I guess it's just a sensory thing!

    I only bring this up because I went my whole life wondering why I did certain "weird" things and then when I was diagnosed with both ADHD and Autism things just... clicked.
    I do have autism! (Sorry for the laaate reply). My habits are normal to me but throw people who don't know me well off sometimes.

    Haha. Takes one to know one I guess.

    And yeah the behaviors are totally normal and even beneficial to people with our specific brain chemistries. I do wish more neurotypical people looked into these types of things and would show a bit more understanding for the ones we can't exactly help, but we're slooooowly getting there over time!
