Use the Force (When No One's Looking)
My former Current colleague OldschoolBrian shares this nerdy revelation:
When the train arrives on the platform, if I am the first person waiting to get on, I wait for the train to stop, then I raise my right hand to the level of my abdomen, extend my index and middle finger and slowly move it about 4 inches from left to right as the subway doors open. I do this to emulate the appearance that I have opened the subway doors using nothing but the shear will of my mind. People see me do this all the time. I don’t mind. I have been doing this for years. Still don’t mind. I do not do this upon exiting the train. BUT I DO, DO IT.
Go ahead, act like you don’t do some weird shit when you think no one is looking.
I’ve started to realize that I actually talk to myself a lot. I think I am pretty good at doing it only when no one is around, though. Not sure if that makes it better… or worse.
