the self-referential OCD experience
One of my kids saw an episode of "Monk" at somebody's house, and expressed an interest in seeing more. (We don't have cable....)
One of the local libraries has it, but their run (five seasons, twenty?-some discs already) was (of course) all jumbled at random on the shelf. And it's only logical to start watching it from the beginning, right?
So in order to find and bring home the earliest disc they had, I found myself carefully arranging their run of "Monk" DVDs into chronological order...
