What do you do in elevators when you're alone?

Here are the various things I do if I'm alone in an elevator:

1. Start humming or singing or reciting something.

2. Twirl around (if the elevator has a carpet or rug, this is more difficult).

3. If the elevator has a mirror, I look to see if I have any booger up my nose.

4. I practice my fake smiles.

5. I imagine what I would say if the elevator doors opened and someone really cool was standing there.

All in hopes that there is no video camera livestreaming my actions to some obscure security office. Hah.

Who cares what one does in elevators if one is alone? Is this really necessary? It benefits none.

Wow, who peed in your cornflakes this morning?

You might want to reign in your rudeness. I enjoy writing - and if you don't like what I write, no one is forcing you to read it.

Haters need to stop reading.

When i'm alone in an elevator, if there are handlebars, I do dips! If the chance to do dips doesn't arise, I scratch that which cannot be scratched outside of an elevator!

Oh man, anon there are some things we just didn't want to ALSO you just reminded me of two things I forgot to include on my original list!

6. Take a really weird reflection-y picture where my face shows 50 times in the mirror.

7. If there are those handlebar thingies, I hold myself up on them and put my feet up on the other side.

Because sometimes I have to be nice to people I don't like or don't care about. people can read my emotions, so I need practice in covering them up.
