Family legend has it that I was an ornery child. Stubborn, strong-willed and independent.
I was famous for â€œthe lookâ€ â€“ 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 â€“ I still have a quality exasperation expression.) When he was young, people used to tease that heâ€™d been practicing â€œthe look.â€ Well, Mitch is now a teenager. And itâ€™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 Search with â€œthe look.â€
