Yawning...


It's pretty contagious...


No matter how much you may try not to...


You just can't help yawning when you see someone else do it!


So I work in the behavioral coding lab on campus. We spend all of our time watching videos of families interacting with each other. We watch these videos 5 or 6 times each depending on if we're coding the mom and dad, or one of the parents with the kid. Every once in a while, I get a task...with a yawn. And no matter how hard I try, I can't help but yawn each time I see the task! I know it's coming...I mentally prepare myself not to...wait for it...and...YAWN. Guh! It's frustrating! And kind of weird when you think about it. Right now, we are coding wave 2 data. That means the tasks we are watching were made in 2008. That means that a yawn that happened almost three years ago, is making me yawn now, in 2011. Weird? I think so...

And yes, finding the pictures for this post, and writing it, definitely resulted in many yawns...as I'm sure it did for you as you were reading... I did that on purpose. :)
