hummers???

So how many people hum when they ride? I got into this discussion today at work, and thought it was pretty interesting.

-I definitely talk to myself while riding from time to time.
-I humm and sing if a good song is in my head (often Atreyu)
-I will also fart from time to time and that will make me laugh outloud! baahaha

I love 'em. Oh, singing. I used to have speakers in my helmet, but took them out. I find myself singing all the time when I ride now, but it's usually some stupid song I don't even like, just something that I don't know the words to that's stuck in my head.

"don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart...................aarrrrrrrrgggghhhhh!"

I rear ended a car a few days ago.......

The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!

He was pissed!

He looked up at me and said "I am NOT happy!"

I said, "Then which one are you?"

I don't hum, I sing at the top of my lungs. With my D&D, no one can hear me. I'm lucky that I can hear myself. lol :)
