After 20 years the saddest thing is you don`t even notice the strange looks you get whilst stretching out or exercising your wrist in a public place. The conversations of painful techniques,the interesting mix of english and japanese when out with a similarly minded individual also cause a stir, especially if you happen to be talking to your young children (also aikidoka, keep it in the family!) at the time!!

Another Saotome incident:

Was at a seminar years back at Chicago Aikikai and Saotome was downplaying the mystical nature of Aikido. paraprased: "There's no secret to Aikido. You want to know the secret? Be like a chicken."

He started cackling like a chicken and making little chicken wing imitations. Then he had a godan attack him and threw him 10 feet, chicken-wing style, cackling the whole time. HILARIOUS.
