I've developed over the past couple years a strange affinity for ridiculous salutes. I think it originated from a desire to have some sort of gesture to use to greet people in the hallways that was more noticeable than a nod but more manly than a wave. But, a regular salute seemed stiff and formal, so I started off with these weird, lazy salutes. Now they've become slightly more ridiculous, like saluting from my nose instead of my brow.
I don't really get it either.
