A Modern Day Robot

So, if someone's walking directly behind me in the hallway, I never know what to do with my arms.

I suddenly become conscious of my stride, and try to control it into a cool swagger, only to realize how restricting it must look, since a "natural" gait, by definition, must be the most natural way I can walk.

How many people consciously walk?

Ha! Yes. There is something in me that wants to be seen as cool, accepted, normative, etc. Heck, I think "looking cool" might have a solid plurality if not straight majority in my decision-making paradigm when it comes to a lot of things. Thanks for bringing this up!
