Boy 1: Um, I think I'll just go outside and ride my bike, but thanks anyway.
Girl 2: Wanna come to the gym with me and take a spinning class?
Boy 2: Hmm, am I in the mood do some real exercise and lift weights or stare at 20 spandexed girl butts for an hour? Hard decision.....
The trigger often seems trivial to others but to the person who is "spinning" it becomes connected to their personal prevailing emotions, past experiences, and/or unresolved trauma/pathology.
May include but not exclusive to:
1. imagining/playing out elaborate future scenarios, radical actions, and/or conversations;
2. questioning any past or present experiences, activities, and/or relationships;
Like how a textile worker can get a seemingly small piece or bundle of fiber and "spin" it into a long thread by combining it with others.
Or how a spider can "spin" an elaborate web by connecting many threads together.
2. Like in the movie "He's Just Not That Into You", questioning the fairly straightforward actions of others and excusing or making them out to mean something else by constructing elaborate scenarios
3. Girl: "We hang out almost everyday but he hasn't asked me to be his girlfriend."
Friend: "Didn't he say he wasn't interested and just wanted to be friends?"
Girl: "Yeah, but I think it was just because he had a bad experience with his last girlfriend and that he didn't get to know me yet."
Friend: "He's not interested though."
Girl: "But we spend so much time together, what if he does want to have a relationship but he just doesn't know how to ask?"
Friend: "You're spinning. If he says he isn't interested then he isn't interested."
widely practiced in depots formally known as ABRO across the UK but mainly in Telford, Shropshire UK.
the highest most respected spin known to man is a 360 spin. meaning that the person has literally looked all the way around for someone who may have called them.
it is mearly a bit of fun that passes the day with amusement.
if you're not spinning, your not working hard enough!!!
"is this yours!"
"excuse me! is...!"
or anything else that may get the attention of the person you are trying to spin.
other name related spins are applicable. i.e.
"mark!!!" (as mark turns around, turn to your buddy on the opposite side and start having a conversation) "...my words it is going to rain tonight!"
