Mean Face/Happy Face
Some days Eli’s general M.O. is to hit first, come up with reasons later. So he’ll whack you in the arm, and then you say, “Hey! Why did you just hit me in the arm?” and he’ll say, “Um…I was mad at your arm.”
Last week he said something like this to Dave, and Dave said, “You don’t look mad” which immediately prompted Eli to make a hilarious “mean face.” Which of course led to me filming said face. The following video is broken into four parts:
- Eli does his mean face; Eli does his happy face.
- Henry tries to do a mean face, but it immediately becomes clear that he takes after me and doesn’t do Mean very well. His mean face consists of scrunching up his nose, and then becoming distracted by his own scrunched nose, which he keeps feeling with his hand.
- Eli does another round of mean and happy, though this time he takes a cue from Henry and feels his nose.
- Eli tries one last time, but has completely lost all mean-ness and can’t stop smiling during his mean face. Plus he upgrades the hand-on-nose happy face by trying to blow his nose into his hand.
