Do You Know a Yawn-Gleeter?

Almost every single time I yawn, I gleet.

Urban Dictionary defines gleet as: The ejection of saliva directly out of ones salvatory glands and out of his/her mouth. (I won't go into the other definitions (ew!!))

I don't do it on purpose, but when I yawn, a small amount of spit comes out and lands on whatever is near me. It has been happening ever since I remember. It's not gross, and most of the time I cover my mouth. I do remember in 4th grade when the hottie who sat in front of me made fun of me for it.
Jared finds it endearing.

The other day it occurred to me that I don't know anyone else who does this. Am I the only one?

Maybe I'm special. I'm like, the Yawn-Gleeting Queen or something.

I've had it happen before, but it doesn't happen all the time. That is funny though. Gleet queen, gleet queen, na-na-na-boo-boo! =P

hm, I've heard of "gleeking" before (which I'm sort of vague about, but I think it's something like gleeting with intent?), but never gleeting. gleet queen is much easier to say than gleek queen anyways.

We all called it gleeking back in middle school. This cute boy I liked used to do it at me to be mean/flirt with me. BTW, I just Googled "gleek vs. gleet" and found some forum discussing superhero powers that got into a debate about the proper form of the word. Interesting...
