Eye Rolling

I was just given a mini-scolding, and it was all I could do not to roll my eyes. I know, NOT SMART. Nevertheless, it is a very effective and satisfying maneuver.

Scoldings happen to me so often I had a non-eye rolling device implanted in my head. Now I just give the finger.

I hate the eye rolling. I used to get it all the time when i used to have a job. ew.

Haha I love Tina Fey.

Diane said...

I love giving out the eye rolling. Only to people and statements that deserve it, of course. I just love that you can say "Oh my gawd, I don't fucking care" in one simple gesture.

Char said...

yeah, my mom caught me doing that once....once.

Dan W Johnson said...

Reminds me of the arguments Mom and Sis used to have that would invariably end in, "Don't roll your eyes at me, Missy!"

Tikimama said...

Who scolded you? Tar and feathers!

As a reader of Janet Evanovich books, I recommend the "mental eye-roll".

Big Red said...

Ahahahahahahahaaha!

Gabby said...

Sometimes it's so satisfying. Liz Lemon is my fave.

Diana said...

Magic Pants Jones said...

I could watch Tina Fey all night. Thank you!

ASSHOLE BOYFRIEND said...

Russ gave me a scolding with the same lame lecture; "Why do you poke me with knives?, "Why did you blow my straight brother again?," "You kicked my mom in the middle of her back!" Yada yada ::rolls eyes::

diane said...

Like Tina Fey, did you say "oh brother" when you rolled your eyes? That makes it doubly effective.
I really hate being scolded, and I already hate the person who scolded you. Let's put a burning "dog poop bag" on their doorstep. Come on, it'll be fun.

ohhhh i almost did this to a guy at work yesterday. it wouldnt have been pretty. what i really wanted to do was to tell him to eat it. whatever it is. go eat it. in a corner by yourself. and then i hope your stomach hurts a lot from it.
but i held back. and didnt roll my eyes either.
ps - i love tina fey

I don't even realize I am rolling my eyes when we argue.

Elizabeth Marie said...

Girl Japan said...

Okay.. spill, spill the beans!!!!! What did you do? I always roll my eyes and say "oh... whatever"!

Chrystina said...

The eye-roll is a talent that few have to the level of excellence as a pro, I can tell youre a pro haha. Any time I can, I will roll my eyes haha. Its just a big old " PSSSSSHHHHH" to what I disagree with. Its ao satisfying. I do a big sigh and a hair flip and we are out.

The word Scolding always makes me shudder-- its never fun. <3

Eeli said...

Oh no! Whatever for? :( You got me thinking and I don'r ever recall either parent rolling their eyes at me lol. I always rolled mine at them! haha


Whatever the cause was hope its deflated. THat feeling is never too good :(


Oh! And another thing, sometimes I'm very much the same, monster-like that is with the little sleep. But I can't help myself. Tis am essential yet silly thing


Nighty night ;)

Eye rolling is as satisfying as scratching an itch.

Sometimes it has to be done

LENORENEVERMORE said...

I can't roll my eyes...I'm worried they would not come back down!
~Cheers babe!

What is wrong with eye rolling? That is the way my kids speak. The four different versions they share are amazing. She has nothing on my 12 year old!!! Hahaha!

erin@designcrisis said...

I used to teach high school and kids roll their eyes all the time. Made me feel stabby. A lot.

Pyzahn said...

What an hysterical moving picture. I can read Tina's lips .... "Oh...bbbrrruuuther."

Sorry for the scolding. I have one of those faces where people are always saying "Hey, what's with the look?"

They obviously don't realize that's just the way my face IS.

Hanako66 said...

ha! Hub says that I do it all the time and I always have the same response..."I don't even know how to do that" with a smile:)

K @ Blog Goggles said...

On my first review at my first real job, the main criticism I got was that I roll my eyes too much. Boo.

The Cottage Cheese said...

LIIIZ LE----MON----! (my impression of Tina's impression of Oprah saying her name). I was a serious eye roller. I still catch myself doing it occasionally.

Penny said...

LMAO!I never roll my eyes at anyone,except my boyfriend.And he hates it.So I do it even more,just to irritate him a bit.

me melodia said...
