Harvey's Obsession

 Harvey was not your typical Obsessive-Compulsive.  He wasn't obsessed by cleaning.  Nor as a child or a young man was he obsessed by schoolwork.   His obsessions usually limited themselves to one thing at a time.

He had bouts of insomnia.  He obsessed about that making it a self-fulfilling prophecy.

As he got older he obsessed about whomever was his current desire.  Was it too early to ask her out?   If not how do I do this?  After the date, how soon can I call for a second date?  Why did I feel it necessary to make that stupid joke?   Did she laugh because she thought it was funny or just out of embarrassment?  What was that look she gave me after the joke?  Did she notice the Tomato sauce on my shirt?

When he opened up his own business, he obsessed about that.   He go over every file, in alphabetical order every day.   He'd call for messages on vacation and all hours of the night.   He'd redo the same letter three or four times.

He no longer has anything to obsess about.  So he's obsessed about that!
