Yes,TheJigIsNatural: Well, that makes sense.If I put any area of my body into a rather un-natural position to then perform a natural function, I'm bound to feel something weird. Like if I touched my left foot to my right ear and then try to dance the jig. Especially in the neck.Lots of nerves and little muscles that need coordination to accomplish a swallow. So,unless you are watching a tennis match, just eat normally
