A Conversation With The Peach 5

(After we'd spent the afternoon of Mother's Day hanging out with my parents.)

Me: What were you smirking at earlier?
Peach: When your parents were bickering earlier.
Me: Right.
Peach: Your mom told your dad to take out the garbage, and he gave him a smart-ass comment, and then she gave him "The Look".
Me: Oh yeah?
Peach: I thought it looked funny.
Me: How do you know what "The Look" even looks like when you're never the one on the recieving end?

And then I got "The Look".

I dunno about your wife, but I've had much opportunity to practice the "look" ;) I know what it looks like when I give it, and I know what it looks like when another female is giving it.

Part of our sixth sense, perhaps.

I think that while every woman's "Look" is slightly different, the sentiment is universally recognized. I've seen Peach's look, and I'm pretty sure it's not quite the same as mine, but they mean the same thing to you and NinjaStolz.
The reality is that detailed instructions and diagrams of The Look and its variations are a regular feature of the universal women's memo (the same publication that has prominent ads for Ikea and Wii Fit): Flowers, Candles and Unicorns Monthly.
