Enjoy game and sound of the bubbles and you must not show a face like for an application photo...

That wouldn't be too bad. My "vacant" look looks merely stupid, not too bad, considering the circumstances.

But once I was practicing "Pop-Eye" mouth for breathing first left side, then right side, etc. while driving. I kept on doing it at a stop-light, and suddenly realized that the lady in the car beside me was staring at me. Luckily I wasn't doing it while leering at her.

Yes, thanks for reminding me about the sound of the bubbles, not just the sensation. I remember when I first learned the trick, it was the sound of the slow trickle of the bubbles that was the most helpful feedback in getting the trickle just right. Funny, but I had forgotten specifically to pay attention to that recently. I can't imagine why, seeing as how it was so helpful before.
