    So a major friendship could result in loss of a limb?

    If I am polite I am generally not smiling. I don't smile at people I do not like. Apparently I have a very expressive face. As such, I have to be very careful to keep facial expressions neutral with those I want to pimp slap so as to avoid my face giving me away. So neutral look and ultra-politness means I am probably hoping you contract a painful case of genital herpes.

    My face is very expressive as well, but I've learned to turn the "go die" glare into a polite Southern Belle smile of "that's nice, honey, go fuck a pine cone."
    And you can ask most of my Guys, they've all been kicked repeatedly.

    I get sickenly sweet and a very cold tone to my voice if I don't like you. If I do like you, I am very sarcastic and funny. Pretty much my normal self. My face is full of expression, but I don't care if I hide it or not.

    Most people can figure out if I don't like them. I've had people ask why I don't like them, I tell them I just don't and walk away.

    ouch. My face is so expressive, my husband can tell when I am annoyed at him even if I don't want him to know. Unfortunately, this causes him to sometimes read things that aren't there.

    One reason Mrs. FW and I have such a sweet and enduring marriage is that we are both complete idiots. Simply absurd. With all the holiday crowds, I kept harrumphing about the zombie apocalypse, and sometimes spontaneously broke into zombie in the middle of Costco, for example. Mrs. FW perfected the zombie face. I ask Is it... the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE?! And she gives me the prefect slackjawed expression of a brain-eater every time.

    There are various other memes: she'll be talking away in the passenger seat and suddenly realize I'm "driving while asleep" (the eye away from her is open, but head is back, mouth agape). There's the "who can out-dumb the other," which is actually pretty nuanced - you have to have a sincere, deadpan expression and be able to speak in almost-sensible non-sequitur ("Why did though do there?", "Where did you doze that?", etc.). There's the goober face, which pops up frequently and unexpectedly. And more.

    But yeah, Mrs. FW can read me like the proverbial Kindle. She often imitates the exasperation facec, as when we are separated in a big store and I find her a bit past the expiration point of my patience.

    This sounds like myself and Mr. Stump. Even our kids do zombie walks and faces. If I look at him all lovey dovey, he'll look at me and say "AAACK!! Too cute, can't look at the cheeks!"

    Geek and I (well, mostly I) have our own language. Eep, mwarp, eepeep, meep, dokitay, eepedid, hokiday, doink, flailing eeps, and our own shorthand are the beginnings of it. There's even spinoffs of the language (the eep legality argument, the denied eep, the warrior doink.) We'll also see the same thing, look at each other, and bust a gut laughing.

    We also do something similar, finish each other sentences, etc. Last night, I did surprise the Mr. however. We were watching VH1's Top 40 R&B songs of the 1990's and as most of you know, I am a total rock chick. Back in the day, I did mix it up more and my husband was actually shocked that I knew most of the songs that they were talking about, and liked them. It's fun to throw a shock to your spouse after 17 years of togetherness.
