1. An unwanted bee buzzing in my direction.
  2. Balls or random objects that may be falling in my direction.
  3. My imitation of an unimpressed Persian grandmother.
    Being Persian myself, I've seen this enough times to know how to do it justice.
  4. Reaching for things.
    All things. I'm 5'1 and North America was built for tall people.
  5. Power posing.
  6. When I get too excited.
    Is there a medical term for someone who flails in espouse to good news? Or puppies?
  7. When I need to wave them like I just don't care.
  8. When I walk through a spider web and start to panic
