[O] How can I add a note to a TODO state change sometimes but not always

I have this in a projects file:


When I move something from TODO to WAITING, it adds a timestamp without asking for a note. That's fine 8 or 9 times out of 10 ... but sometimes I want to add a note too.

If I use the @ it will always ask me for a note, and I have to C-c C-c to get out of that. I'd like to avoid that if I can.

Is there a way (a prefix or alternate command) that I can use to have Org let me add an optional note when I change a TODO state?

I see that C-c C-z (org-add-note) adds a note, but it does it to the item as a whole, not to the WAITING workflow change, like so:

* WAITING Find out how to sometimes add a note when I change to WAITING
  - Note taken on [2014-09-11 Thu 11:36] \\
    Asked on mailing list
  - State "WAITING"    from "WAITING"    [2014-09-11 Thu 11:30]
  - State "WAITING"    from "TODO"       [2014-09-11 Thu 11:25]
