I went to air cadets for the first time and they make a big deal out of standing to attention in front of senior ranks. I walked up to the leader and after finishing the conversation i automatically bowed out. Didnt make things any less awkward...
Theres a fine line between genius and insanity....

Back when I was MUCH younger, I was on a date with someone who didn't understand much about martial arts training. We were sitting at a drive-in restaurant when she made a movement which I caught out of the corner of my eye like she was throwing a milkshake at me. Completely without thinking, I spun toward her throwing a shuto block. Needless to say, disaster followed... The milkshake she was jokingly "throwing at me" was redirected, hit her in the face and exploded... We spent the rest of the night back at her house while she shampooed milkshake out of her hair...

Conditioned responses... not always good for you...

Conditioned responses with a moment of thought... better for you...

Luckily, she had a sense of humor...
