HA HA HA HA!! that is me described to a T, the other day my boss asked me to do something, i responded with a "Hai!" anda quick bow..much to her puzzlement.
I have been known to do this! also friends who know I practice aikido (but don't themselves) have learned that like pavlov's dogs all they need do is let out a kiai, followed by "seiza please" and I will stop whatever i'm doing, bow and drop to seiza. They think it's funny and use me as a parlor trick at parties! Oh the shame of it. -Kim
