I just almost spilled my chicken on the ground and made a sound like "whoah" as I caught the plate. I wondered why my brain wanted me to make that sound. It doesn't help me to catch the plate at all. Logically I should just focus on the catching, and making any "whoah" sound is a distraction that just hurts my plate steadying. I asked my brain why it was doing that. It told me that it does it as a hedge against the case when I do spill the plate. If I do spill the plate without saying "whoah" then everyone looks at me, and I feel all embarassed. If I make a "whoah" first and then spill the plate, everyone looks at the "whoah" and then sees the spill and knows I was aware of the drop before it happened, and I feel less embarassed.
