Am I Alone or Does Someone Else...

duck their head down on occasion when driving through a parking deck? As I left the gym this morning, I realized that I was bending my head down as if that would somehow prevent the top of my car from scraping the ceiling of the parking deck level I was leaving. Sure I logically know that my car isn't so high off the ground that it'll happen, but I still duck down a bit.

p.s. I'm grateful to be able to afford a gym membership--especially on mornings when it is raining.

You're not alone...I do that sometimes too and then feel really stupid too!;) One of those natural human reflexes I guess!

I think People are lonely who thinks everyone is their friend.

You're not alone. There are plenty of other nutty people in this world that do the same thing, I'm sure. ;)

I do it all the time. We were on a road trip once in high school and had pulled over for some unknown reason (I think some boy had to pee or something). Anyway we're all sitting there in someone's mom's minivan, and this HUGE oversize load timber truck comes roaring toward us, and I yell, "DUCK!"

I have yet to live that one down.

I don't think I do that, but it could just be that I am so freakin short I never worry about hitting my head on anything!

I prefer to gesture while I'm on the phone with someone.

I also yank my head to the side when I see a bug flying directly at my windshield.

And...generally all of us close our eyes for a split second when we sneeze....

Yes... I have done that also.

I also duck my head on roller coasters when I think it's going to hit the wood (or steal).. knowing I'm SHORT and don't have a big head...

yet I continue
