Showing my inner nerd

Star Wars fans, ever do this:

enter or exit a store or facility with automatic sliding doors and as you approach, sort of wave your hand in that slick jedi fashion as if using your will to open the doors?

I've been known to do this sometimes, but usually to amuse my friends and/or puzzle unsuspecting witnesses.

I usually scream and roll into a ball muttering "Foul witchcraft" over and over.

Re: Showing my inner nerd

Yes, I have, actually. Enough that people with me have commented on it.

Of course, I didn't start until after Episode II, when we got to see the proper Jedi hand motion for door-opening. I wouldn't have wanted to get it wrong.

I used to always do the hand-wave, though very subtly. Not so much in the past year or two though.

I was doing this long before anybody ever heard of Jedi Knights.

It's more fun to do it Magneto-style, I'd imagine.

Please, that's nothing. Sometimes when I head off somewhere in my car, I'll do Picard's "Engage" move with my fingers. lol

Re: Showing my inner nerd

I've lost track of the number of times I've stuck a gizmo against my brother's neck and made a hissing sound.

Car charger plugs work best for this....
