definitely. the only reason i hesitated to add that to my post is that i was thinking about it becoming a problem of overthinking in this case - and instead of trying to finish the turnover at the time the feet reconnect, trying to reconnect the feet at the time the turnover finished (i.e. floating the feet). i haven't seen this much, but i have seen it, and it 's amazingly awkward. i guess the key is using it as a cue - attempting to do it - but knowing it won't happen exactly.
