Photo Taking Machine

I don't know if I'm strange for doing this but I'm a photo taking machine!
In my life I'v clicked the shutter no more than 5,000 times. That's a small number by anyone's standards and especially for someone that considers themselves an amateur photographer.
I have however taken thosands upon thousands of photos in just the last month. I'm a freak of nature. I can't walk to the kitchen without mentally taking a few photos. I open the pantry and as the light hits the boxes of cereal I take a snap. Before I close the door I've spent a roll of 36 frames. On my way to work, walking around the city, going to get my lunch, meeting friends, brushing my teeth, photos, photos, click, thunk.
I don't know if I'm crazy or obsessed but I believe it's both. Every photo I take wins the Pulitzer only to be shadowed by the next one a moment later. I write this in a room in partial light offering me at least 3 rolls of photos by the time I finish. You just don't stand a chance next to me. I'm telling you I'm a camera first, a human second.
You think I'm kidding don't you?
