    OMG! That's Me Too!

    I think I have always shaked by leg when I am nervous.  My brother always did it too!  It used to drive my ex husband nuts!  He always said why do you do that?  I said I don't know I don't even know I do it most of the time.  He said well your brother...

    Yes But..

    I do shake my leg when I am nervous but the funny part is I hate when others do the same. Especially if I'm sitting next to them and they shake their leg so fast that it shakes everything around. And I abhor if I'm having a nice yummy shake in my hand and it gets shaken again...

    It's So Relaxing !

    I use to shake my leg when I am nervous or anxious ... and I hate when somebody hold my leg trying to stop me !!! People has to respect one other ... if seeing somebody shaking a leg makes you annoyed, just look at another thing!

    Or Bored, Or Antsy, Or Excited...

     I'm always the person shaking the car at a red light or the bench with my leg jiggling. I don't even realize I'm doing it sometimes. At least I don't do it constantly! I do wiggle my toes constantly, but people rarely notice that. I just have active legs and feet, I guess...
