echoWiggling a "to world" position...

I am using a world position coordinate of another layer:

L = thisComp.layer("positionlayer")
G = L.toWorld(L.anchorPoint);

but I figure I wanted to add a little wiggle to this layer that was using the 'positionlayer's position. So....

L = thisComp.layer("positionlayer")
G = L.toWorld(L.anchorPoint);
wiggle(12,10);

But what I found is that the wiggle layer does not follow (and slightly wiggle) along with the positionlayer anymore. Do I have to write a more complex expression - or is this just some syntax I'm getting wrong here...?

This should do it:

L = thisComp.layer("positionlayer")
G = L.toWorld(L.anchorPoint);
G + wiggle(12,10) - value;
