Family legend has it that I was an ornery child. Stubborn, strong-willed and independent.
I was famous for “the look” – an exasperated eye roll that clearly expressed my displeasure with a given situation.
My cousin Mitch picked up the reigns when I outgrew it. (To clarify, I only outgrew people applying the phrase to me – I still have a quality exasperation expression.) When he was young, people used to tease that he’d been practicing “the look.” Well, Mitch is now a teenager. And it’s time to educate the new generation.
An argument for nature in the nature vs. nurture debate, karma has reared its ugly head and gifted my young muppet Caden with “the look.”
