    Where did I get this habit?

    When I am cooking potatoes salad for example.. I dont count how many potatoes I am using I say... Out loud..."1 for Me,1 for Name,1 for name ,1 for name ,1 for the pot and 1 for good measure". My mother said my g.mother used to say that.. But I never met her... Have you heard anyone do this before? Where did I get it from?

    I dont think phases are inherited... My G.mom died a week after I was born so... It cant be from memory.. I was wondering if it was a common thing somewhere or if a cook on tv did it... My nephews asked me about it today.. They thought it was the funniest thing they ever heard.
