Time’s tell

Earlier this week, Lauren Graham of NBC’s Parenthood paid a visit to the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Between tales of the family drama’s new season and a strip club visit, Lauren displayed a habit of sticking her tongue out of one corner of her mouth.

Of course, Craig just had to point out her nervous tick to the audience.  Lauren didn’t seem upset at being exposed; she was more worried that the gesture was a sign of her impending age.

Which got me thinking — do I have a geezer habit?

I’ve been trying to be more self-aware this week.  And I’ve noticed when I walk the dog, I tend to roll and pop my neck while I’m waiting for Rory to do his business.

I wonder if my neighbors — who see me pass four times or more each day — noticed this habit years ago.  Heck, I may even have a neck-related nickname that I don’t even know about.

“Cracky” definitely needs to start watching that.
