I'm sorry about this, but the title of this thread took me straight back
All we hear is (clap, clap)
Radio Borsetshire (clap, clap)
Radio Goo-Goo (clap, clap)
And that's everyone's earworm for the day sorted.
No, not at all. It was a pleasure.
Please stop that clapping Sid, it's bad for your hand and we want you to
heal as soon as possible.
To make a good loud sound with a clapping motion, you really need to
trap air between your palms as they come together; this is why children
can't really clap loudly (partly because they don't realise and think
it's just the slapping together of their hands that makes the noise, and
partly because they can't trap the air because of their shape and/or
size). Anyway, at one point - about my early teens, I think - I proudly
told my parents something like "I've improved my clap"; needless to say,
my mother at least (who had that sort of mind at the best of times!)

Yes, the sooner I can go back to using my hand, the better.
