best way i could think of to explain it.

it sure is not singing. from me or anyone else on the job. it is not just the noise bieng made (if that works for you) it is the subconscious choice made while trying to get through a tough day.

putting things in crazy places or forgetting to add an important ingredient to a recipe like yeast, etc.

I do this, too, and my whole family chuckles with me. I laugh at myself a lot - actually, I laugh a lot period. And I seem to give myself a lot to laugh at these days.

When I'm driving in the truck with a great classical composition on, and rather than put the energy to my acelerator peddle, I keep a drinking straw to use as a baton, and conduct my orchestra. I can get so into it, that when I notice someone watching, say, at a red light, I just kind of salute them, using my straw - and continue on.

I think I must look like a nut. And I hope to never have it be a cop sitting at that red light. LOL!

Was there a bubble machine in your truck??? You are reminding me of Lawrence Welk......and a one and a two.............he always had a baton in his hand, too.....

What comes to mind instantly is how much I sound like my Mom now while "conversing" with my children......she has passed & is probably laughing at me...because I REALLY do say the things she said AND my voice is identical to hers! It actually makes me laugh & cry sometimes (because I miss her)
weird how that works....
