    There are, of course, several ways to distribute and order
    possessions that, to the orally fixated, for instance, would
    still appear to be uselessly chaotic and sloppy, but that are
    perfectly discernible to the one whose ordering system it is.

    Ask the messiest person you know why they keep their place so
    messy, and they might just say, hey, I can find everything....
