Does anyone else do this?

Whenever I’m at a book store and I’m standing in front of the shelves for a long enough time, I start standing like this. Completely unconsciously. But I always stop and readjust to a more normal position once I realize I’m doing it.

The hat is not there to show off my impeccable fashion sense, but to demonstrate that my head is somewhat tilted.

But yeah. It’s like looking at a certain amount of books turns me into a cross between a flamingo and a velociraptor.

Well I never stand still in a bookstore. I’m always moving from one end of the bookshelf to another. But if I did stand still for too long I would probably end up crouching.

@Rico: wut?

Anyways I tend to do a similar thing, I unconsciously stand on my toes with one arm behind my back for a few minutes before I realize it.

What the fuck is a book store

It’s where people went to get books before Bittorent existed.

There’s coffee and cozy chairs.

Bookstore? I thought it was called a kindle. Besides, who “reads” nowadays…

As you can tell from my name, I actually have a Fedora, and I will sometimes take my Fedora off and put it up to my heart like I’m listening to the national anthem.
