We all have our morning rituals to get our day started. Here’s what I do pretty much every day of the week.
Wake up, have a small bite to eat, drink a bunch of coffee, and get straight to work. After a few hours, I like to talk a 4-mile walk through my neighborhood (if it’s not raining) and then it’s more coffee and more work.
It may sound boring, but I like my routine, especially since I’m so used to it by now.
We all have our rituals and some people definitely have some pretty strange ones.
Let’s take a look at unique ones that people shared on Twitter.
1. Best to keep him inside.
Just in case…
Every evening, before going to bed, I hide the front door keys so that my eldest son, who sleepwalks most nights, doesn’t inadvertently let himself out.
What daily rituals do you suspect you’re alone in following?

2. Time for your ride!
Are you ready?
Every time we hear a car horn outside our house, I say to my wife ‘your taxi’s here’.

3. Always the same.
What a life.
Every day as I leave for work I cheerily trill “have a nice day being a cat!” to the cat, because she has a lot of catting to get done. When I come home I enthusiastically enquire “have you had a nice day being a cat?” – she always has.

4. Turn on something good.
You need to make sure they’re happy, ya know?
Every day I leave the TV on for the dogs. I feel bad if it’s on something shit like the shopping channel, so I spend 10 minutes searching for something they might like.

5. I like this song.
It could even be a hit!
When I make tea for me and my wife I like to use the two mugs that have stars on. I cannot put the kettle on without singing* “Staaaaar mugs, fill them full of tea, it’s love-ly beverage, just for you and me…” to the tune of Star Man by Bowie.
*For a given value of ‘singing’

6. We’re not common people.
And the burglars better realize that!
When I was a child, when we went out in the evening my parents used to leave the tv on to deter burglars, but mum refused to ever leave it on ITV in case said burglars were to think we were common …

7. Love u2?
What a band!
Every night before we go to sleep I say “Love You” to my wife, she replies “Love You Too”, to which I reply “What the band?”. Every. Single. Time.

8. Goodnight, missing children.
Well, isn’t that sweet?
My boys are 21 and 19. #eldest is at uni. I go to their rooms and say good night to them every night, whether they’re home or not.

9. Every single time.
Just like a disaster movie.
When in the supermarket if I leave my husband with the trolley while I go to grab something in another aisle I will grab his face and say in a dramatic disaster film way, ‘wait for me, I WILL COME FOR YOU’. And then walk away laughing, every time!

10. That’s a good idea.
You don’t want a fire on your hands.
Every night the last person up to bed has to take the knobs off the oven because our toddler is a maniac

11. Open up the blinds.
Don’t want to upset him…
I always wish our terrapin a good morning as I open the blinds for him. I have convinced myself he will be upset if I ignored him whilst doing it. And yes, I open the blinds FOR THE TERRAPIN #notmenopausalatall #lovemyterrapin

12. You’re a big winner!
Every single day!
I drink coffee and play an old FB game that no one plays anymore so my name is always first place on the scoreboard. I’m a star every morning. 🏆🥇

13. You’re in charge.
No, not you!
Every morning when I’m leaving for work, I put one of the cats in charge to keep all the others in line while we’re out.
(it’s NEVER Amelia)

14. Get ready for your breakfast.
I’m sure he loves this.
Every morning I, or my girlfriend (depending on who gets up first) sings a “good morning song” to our pet rabbit, to let him know his breakfast of parsley is on its way.
