    Ahhh there sounds a true teacher - all sense of embarrassment dissipates when you stand up and make a fool of yourself in front of a class - I've been known to buzz in front of my students - they think I'm nuts, I just remove ALL doubt. I too buzz in the car, and while shopping, and any activity not actually using my mouth for other things.

    I know what you mean about the "not wasting anymore time" and the people around me can be damned if they don't like my buzzing, tonguing practice or they stare at me in my car with P.E.T.E. in my mouth!

    Everyday I keep thinking -- "If I only had this passion back when I was 20!"

    I would never want that... My sister in law is from the Bronx, that is bad enough. Maybe I should wear a shirt that says: Manhattanite buzzing, stay 50 feet back.

    I used to buzz a MP on the back deck of my house until my neighbor asked me one day what was up with all the duck calling. The buzz sounds better now .... more like an angry bee .... but I do it inside.

    I was buzzing my MP in the car on the way to my lesson last night. I wonder how that looked to my fellow motorists?

    "Man! You'd never believe what I saw on the way home from work! I saw this guy having to blow into a Breathalyzer ALL THE TIME to drive his car!"
