    Yes, Matthew. I was definitely thinking of your driving habits during the episode. I still don’t return by the same route I take somewhere more often than not, and it’s all because of you. Also, I did post this comment within an hour of listening to the end of the episode, it just took me a few days to get to the episode in the first place.
    My top five habits:
    5) Listening to the Critical Hit episodes that Stephen edits – I work a second job on weekend overnights, and my shift starts at 11pm on Friday night. I listen to a lot of podcasts during my 16 hours of work, but every Friday while I’m making fresh coffee for the hotel breakfast, I bring up the latest Critical Hit and listen to that first, no matter how many other episodes of other podcasts are in my queue.
    4) Making “finger guns” at mirrors I pass – I only do this when nobody will see me, but it’s definitely a habit. I like giving myself a little ego boost like, “Hey, my man. You’re doin’ alright.”
    3) Calling other drivers “Chuck” – I have no idea where this comes from, but whenever I’m in my car and someone is, e.g., not signaling where they intend to turn, I’m sitting there asking, “What’s it gonna be, Chuck? You can’t go straight here, so it’s gotta be left or right.” Occasionally, I’ll say “Chuckles” instead, if I’m not into the whole brevity thing.
    2) Playing with my hair – I didn’t really notice this until I got my below-shoulder-length locks chopped off a week or so ago, but I spend a lot of time reaching up to pull my hair back, even though I no longer have the hair to pull.
    1) Getting my change ready – I’m almost obsessive about this. I hate to feel like I’m wasting the time of a cashier, so while I’m waiting in line, I almost always pull out exact change if I have it, so that I can be prepared to slap those coins down and get out of the way for the next person.
