V is for Violin

V is for Violin (a very small one)
I have a gesture I make to my children whenever they are being particularly whiney. It involves my index finger and my thumb rubbing together. I tell them I am playing the world’s smallest violin. In other words get over it.
I have no idea where this gesture originated. My husband has done it as well, so it is not just my family.
Do you have any quirky sayings or gestures that you have no idea where they came from?
