Admit it, you're crazy!

"Everyone has his or her own quirk–a crazy bit of behavior that he'd just as soon have no one know about. To give her fellow Americans the feeling that they're not alone, as well as a chance to chortle or smirk at others' idiosyncrasies, Judy Reiser has collected gem-like examples."
