It is an art.
To be successful, it has to be subtle, but clear.
Quiet, but definite.
Timed oh, evah so perfectly.
And it must deliver the message without doubt.
I am the master of "Giving face".
I can reduce momma and daddy to puddles of apologies, for both real and imaginary slights.
That's when you know you are good! When they start looking for things to apologize for as a response to your "giving face.
I don't do the eye roll thing much anymore. It is too, too obvious.
I give face.
Do not engage in giving face until you have spent a great deal of time practicing it. You don't want to take the sting out of it by acclamation,
Deep breath. I am good at this. This morning momma apologized for thinking that I was JD.
Look this picture. That is a picture perfect moment of "giving face"
And that's how it's done!
Go find a mirror, make sure you are alone and practice. Oh, I follow the face, with a long slow blink that fades into a distant stare. Per-fect-ionnnnnn,
Happy Sepia Saturday.
