    i've never seen a thread about this so here goes..

    does anybody else like me loves to whistle parrot style? i must've inherited it from my mom, she also whistles any melody, even tv ads :D it's almost automatic for me.

    even in the supermarket or whatever, i often whistle.

    i either get a stare from the guys or a smile (the girls @ the counter seem to enjoy it) like the other day i whistled the (crappy) -Kenny G- song they were playing lol

    also the occasional comment "you're pretty good" [​IMG]

    .....or "please stop, you're bothering the clients" [​IMG]

    I can barely whistle enough to get my dog to look at me let alone carry a tune. :p

    If you can whistle like the Parrots we have visiting the garden feeders that's pretty loud!

    Once tried in vain to learn how to do that fingers in the mouth loud "over here" whistle, failed.

    I'm only whistling while I'm thinking about a problem when working with electricity, or when I'm in the hardware store looking for something that's not where it should be :p

    We own a lot of birds see, so whistling comes naturally.

    me too, ever since I got my dental bridge. but I can't whistle a tune so I'm jealous. But I do tap my fingers to tunes like i'm playing a piano. Looks weird but it's a natural reaction.

    I whistle a lot... I bet it's annoying to others around me. Nobody's ever said anything about it so I guess it can't be all that bad :/

    I can't whistle sadly, not the normal way anyway. I thought I could but I've been told by people that what I do is not whistling.

    I can however do the fingers in mouth, really loud "over here" whistle :D.

    I only whistle when I want to annoy other people. A good way is to put a blade of grass between your thumbs and blow. It makes a god awful annoying sound when you get it right.

    That lame old hit 'Little Does She Know' by The Kursaals suddenly entered my head, and now I can't stop whistling it! :(
