Crossandra..It shot me!

Ok...call me crazy, but my Crossandra plant was shooting me the other day! I was watering the garden, and I kept hearing click, click, pop, pop, etc. I started feeling stuff hitting me and thought it was probably grasshoppers. Wrong! Something hit me in the face, and I looked down at the plant and it was shooting seeds at me! Is this a normal occurance among Crossandra plants? Do they shoot out seeds when parts are done flowering in order to plant themselves and make new plants? Or is this just a freak thing? It sure shocked me...made me laugh after I got over the shock though:)
Anybody else had this happen?

I

Sounds like an original Star Trek episode. You're not feeling very laid back and congenial today, are you?
