I have a problem

I have bike withdrawal problems.

Since my bike has been stolen I haven't ridden for about 5 weeks. Now I'm having problems.

Whenever i see something, I jump off it and do 'tricks' when in the air I tweak my legs like a flatty or move my hands like an X-up or even try to wall ride. Also when on the bus, when it does a hard corner I put my leg out and lean into it. Another one is, when in a car, when I'm about to go over a hump, I'll try to move my body to balance the car and even pull up with my hands as if monoing over it and for some reason this doesnt work.

I really think I have a problem. And it's funny when people see me doing it.

Does anyone else do any of these things and don't worry, my new bike will definately be ready by Thursday and maybe even ready tomorrow.
