Warning: a side effect of noding at work - you get paranoid.
I actually wasn't noding at the time, but actually working, leaning close in to my monitor (people always make sarky comments about the resolution of my monitor; but they don't need to read it), listening to the radio...
And Abdiel said, "Lau-"
He immediately started laughing riotously.
Riotously. "O h m y G o d!"
"You're going to have necklash.." (He's still not 100% on his American idiom sometimes) ".. are you okay?"
Embarassed, my heart thrumming, i asserted that I was, and that he'd better quiet down or I would beat him up.
