    Special Touch

    I can't help it ..... if I am waiting at the lights, I have to push the button, over and over and over again. I know it won't make the light change faster but I do so enjoy it! It is a sense of power, misguided, but power none the less. Feeling as if I am...

    Especially If It Says 'don't Push This Button!'

    There was this button in the office I used to work in that had a sign next to it saying 'do not push this button'.  I was so tempted to push it because I wanted to know what would happen.  At a later time facilities installed a cover over it so no one could touch or...

    I'm such a button pusher. You've got to keep me away from Toy Stores. I'll end up pushing all the "Try me" buttons that I can push. The more obnoxious the toy, the better.
