Don't Be Hating Just Cuz You're Jealous

I have a talent that many of you may be amazed by: I can cross one eye toward my nose, while the other eye looks straight ahead. I can't tell you how many folks I have entertained with this feat. I wish I had a dollar for every time my kids proudly said, "Do that eye thing, mom! Show them your eye trick!"

But not everyone is properly impressed. In fact, once I showed my personal trainer at the gym and he said to me, "I highly recommend you never do that in public again."

He was just jealous if you ask me.

Brilliant!!! I wanna see a pic of that. My mom is the one who tells me to do my tricks. (I can flip my tongue completely upside down and flip my eyelids up.) And thanks for the congrats on my diet! :)

Wow, that is way cool! It's like you have a superpower.

Remember to use it only for good, never evil.

This is so gonna sound like bandwaggonning but -so can I! I practiced for hours as a kid because my brother could stare at you and roll one eye UP until you couldnt see anything but white. That was impressively creepy. I was jealous.

Really really pleased to meet another loony.

Have you ever used it with a really stupid grin to scare off bar crawlers?

(Can you wiggle your scalp/ears too?)

Of course he was jealous. My dad could wiggle his ears, but despite trying for years, I could never master it. Some abilities are just gifts, I guess.

My daughter does that, and it totally grosses me out.
I hope both of you get stuck that way.

:) (okay, I'm just jealous. But can you do THIS???)

Just because the trailer threw up doesn't mean that EVERYBODY will.

He had NO sense of humor! My son does some freaky things like that. He does this one face called The Hillbilly. I must take a pic and post it some time. His eyes are off-center, and the look on his face is... well, so hillbillyish.

Oh my gosh, I can do this too and have definitely freaked people out with it! I can cross one eye in and move the other one independently. I love shocking people with it. I'm evil. :)
