Poor men. Sorry we put you up to this all the time. ;)
Makiko: (emerges from the bedroom dressed in jeans. After months of exercising, she thinks the jeans are fitting better)
"How Do I look?"
Scott: (Oblivious to her inner thoughts, fixing lunch for the kids in the kitchen. After a quick glance.)
"You look fine"
Makiko: (gives him the *stink eye)
"I mean, HOW DO I LOOK?" (now, the capital letters mean louder voice)
Scott: (stops his hands and takes another look)
"I mean, your hair needs to be combed, but you look fine"
After a little silence......
Makiko: "DO I LOOK SKINNY?"
Scott: (disappears for 2 seconds, runs back into the kitchen, with hands up in the air, gives Makiko a man hug, wide eyed)
"HOLY SMOKES! LOOK AT YOU!? YOU LOOK INCREDIBLE! LOOK AT YOUR SKINNY LITTLE WAIST!!!!!!!!!"
Scott & Makiko: Burst out laughing......
