This really is such a brilliant thread, I love it!
@Fidelia - I do the things with repeating words and I love rubbing my feet together after a shower and watching my feet *snow*, ahaha!
I have another one I have a feeling other people might do.
When I was very little and in the car while my mom drove home at night, I'd watch the beams of light coming down from the streetlights and I thought they looked like fingers reaching out to touch the car. I'd watch the beam stretching out toward the car, then hit the hood, then it looked like the 'fingers' were 'pushing' the car forward to the next waiting finger of light. I would watch the entire time to see if the fingers of light would push us all the way home.
I STILL think of that and look at the 'fingers of light' to this day.
