I'm a Saver


So, let's say I grab a drink from the drinking fountain at work. After quenching my thirst, I will take one last swig and not swallow it until roughly I get back to my desk.

Or, let's say I send something to the printer at work. I take a drink from my glass and don't officially swallow until after I'm roughly near the printer.

This habit of mine only became a conscious one when along this walk I was greeted by a coworker and I gave a bubbly "helgh", swallowed, then gave a gasped "hello" after they were 20 feet away.

What is this?? Is this a survival skill I inherited from my chipmunk ancestors? Anyone else crazy like me?
