But the habit didn’t go away when I got a new keyboard last year. After so many misfires with my old keyboard, it was almost as if my tiniest digit grew afraid of that broken control key. I finally became aware of this weird situation today when I noticed my finger dangling like a sad T-Rex arm, lacking the confidence to ready itself for action. The behavior became so familiar that it just coasted below my awareness.
I’m willing to bet you have some weird behaviors, too. Do you have a strange smartphone ritual? A bizarre tablet habit? Let us know.
