    What are yours??

    I bite my lower lip, twirl my hair on my finger, or sometimes tap my foot, this one has just been brought to my attention.

    why are you nervous, Bonnie? :) Relax! :p:

    I finger-tap...while at dinner, I spin the little wine-glass charm...or sorta tap whichever utensil I have. I also talk...a LOT...when I'm nervous.

    When I'm nervous, I play with my hands, or bite my nails.
    I naturally tap my feet, beat on the desk, or sing cause I'm
    a musician.

    I bite my nails, chew the inside of my cheek, jiggle my leg, but theWORST thing I do when I'm nervous is smile! I hate this! It gets you into such yucchy situations. People think you aren't taking them seriously, or I am being serious, and they don't take me seriously. Very annoying! I remember we had a scare with one of the kids, getting hurt, and I was grinning from ear-to-ear! People must think I am a terrible parent to think it's funny when my child is hurt. It wasn't funny; I was just nervous! I would love to know WHY I do this. If anyone knows anything about psychology, please let me know.

    Anybody else ever smile and laugh when accused of a prank you didn't pull, just because you wish you HAD?

    Drum my nails (they make nice loud, distracting, clicking sounds), and pace.
