Why can't I be an intentional mimic?

I mean, that would be a lot of fun at parties...

While playing Daggerfall, lo! these many years ago, I started giggling like the nymphs. I didn't actually notice until my then-husband pointed it out. I have no idea if I still can, since I can't remember what they sounded like. Just today I gave a hearty 'HaHa!' just like one hears in Might and Magic VII although I can't quite remember what one does to make that laugh - it's so common and I have played it so much it's background now but I think it's the sound when one casts Wizard's Eye. I find myself using the mannerisms of friends quite a bit. I can only hope noone ends up offended - it's not conscious but I do believe it is what is being referred to in 'imitation is the sincerest form of flattery'.

But, if I could only do it on purpose....

A big THANK YOU to gamera_spinning

For putting me onto Astonishing X-Men: Gifted.

Only 6 pages in and I had to put the thing down to laugh my silly ass off.
