Apparently I have a distinctive walk.
I am not announcing this without evidence. I say this because recently I walked into a room and someone shouted from the next room, "Phil!"
"How did you know it was me?" I asked.
"I can tell it's you from the sound of your walk."
Having a walk that people recognize on sight is enough to make you paranoid. You become self-conscious and start thinking about the way you walk, which makes your walk that much more distinctive, for the wrong reasons.
It's another thing to have someone say they can tell your walk because they can hear it. Are my boots wicked loud?
It's a good thing I'm not a spy. I'd be a lousy one.
