Only if you can put your ears back and swish your tail too!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

Instead of telling my dogs not to pull on their leash, like I used to, its now just whoa. I also click and pat their butts if they're in the way.

Rich got an elbow to the sternum a few times over, I think I even knocked the wind out of him. He's never let me forget it either.
I don't think I've done it since... Oops.

I cluck at my cats to move over. They actually listen to that.

I yelled ho at a co worker one time. This was before I started back into riding again, I laughed.

I do sympathy clucking. I can't help it. A couple weeks ago I was watching a lesson, sometimes I help out with this group of girls. And the sister, she's maybe around 8? She's lazy, she doesn't like to do all the work. But I could see because her younger sister wasn't their she was coming out of her shell. She was doing poles, and she wasn't giving enough leg or encouragement before the poles. So I was clucking for her. I kept telling myself to stop. But I kept getting so wrapped up in her lesson, I kept clucking.

Tell my hubby to WHOA!!! all the time when I'm being a back seat driver. He's used to it now but the first time he durn near rear ended someone because his brain didn't compute whoa into stop. I won't repeat the conversation we had afterwards. LOL

When I'm driving through hills I adjust my seat / legs / seat bones to help the car balance. Seems to be working so far!

I do this kind of stuff all the time... I cluck at the dogs and cats. I use the sharp "AH AH AH!" whenever the cats are rough-housing (much too much for cats). I cluck and push on my family members when they are in my way. I say "easy" when another driver is driving aggressively. I use leg pressure when I am riding in a car with someone who is driving slow...

Riding brain. Nice to know it has a name!

And Keller, I live that video! And part 2! Have you seen Stuff No Rider Says? That one is hilarious also.
