Mrs. Cranky seldom has a harsh word for me. She doesn’t need to have a harsh word. No I am not perfect, I do screw up from time to time; I just get my rebuke in mostly non-verbal communication.
There is the “You have got to be kidding me” deep breath-sigh often followed by a heavy eye roll. If there is verbal communication it is limited to “Seriously?”
There is the “Do you EVER listen to a thing I say glare.” This is accompanied by raised eyebrow and hands on the hips. Foot tapping is not an encouraging sign.
Occasionally I get the “You might want to shut the f*ck up soon” look. This is a lowered glare with furled eyebrows; the eyes make a "get out of here" right to left movement.
Hands out, palms and eyebrows up, mouth in a big “O” and it is clear that I am being asked “WTF?” When the hands move to the hips it clearly means, “I am not happy!”
Then there are the “I hate you eyes.” I’m not even sure how to describe this look, but I sure as hell know it when I get it!
I am told there also exists a “Come hither look.” This look indicates good times are a wait-in. I’m not sure, though I think I may have seen this look, I pretty much put it in the same category as UFO’s and Bigfoot.
Mrs. Cranky just read this post and she summed up her feelings with one look that I know means.
“You're a Jerk!”
