Maybe you remember, and maybe you don’t, but I recently rambled about baking a dark chocolate brownie. I did that a couple of days ago and it went very well.

Let’s end the week with a little bit of a weird (but possibly quick) question: How do you wave?
I have three waves that I basically interchange:
- I stick my hand up, leave it there for a moment, and then do a hard shift in the other direction, but only once.
- I stick up my thumb, index finger, and middle finger, and then quickly but softly move my hand in the other direction, again only once.
- I stick my hand up and quickly wiggle my fingers for about a second, which is long enough before I begin to think that I’m waving like a child.
They all really depend on my mood, mostly which version of light humor I’m going for or how much effort I’m trying to put in. The first is maximum light humor, maximum effort. The second is less light humor, low effort, and the third is low humor, low effort.
This ends a surprisingly long analysis of my waves.
tl;dr: How do you wave?
