Dearest Digitologists,

As a sheepie I of course luff to tap my fingers whilst idle.....and....when occupied too actually but perhaps I just notice it more whilst idle !

Yep, tapping fingers is all I think about really.

I remember reading that the rhythm of walking has a calming effect on the human body.  Maybe finger tapping is thumbthing like that. :o)

Thanks Donnah   I think you are most probably very right. .....

..............hmmmm (ponders).... it would be an interesting study I think to find out that when people idly tap their fingers or twitch their legs /feet that it is in concert with a bodily rhythm  !

I don't know about tapping thumbs but according to Freud, people who twiddle their thumbs are basically said, likely to be over sexed....

Geese Neil..wish you would stop referring to your self in such a derrogitve term... I know that with each coupling that you participate in that  you
are indeed delivered...but for goodness sakes! How long do I have to tell you...?
You are no Dumbo... I keep telling you, your a Dork! Not a Dumbo!!! You really need your
ears tested Dork...lol......  x  ;-)

Ummm, what's a Dork?  Is that a cross between Dumbo and stork?  Okay, the Dumbo being delivered by a stork is starting to make sense now.
