“ahhh…you made MOUTH contact….”

From a recent conversation between eight-year-old Mabel and her Nana as they were leaving a restaurant. Mabel was in a big hurry to get to the pool and as they exited the restaurant, Nana and some others saw an old friend.

Mabel – (trying to hurry Nana along…spoken under her breath) Nana…Nana…look over here.

Nana – (trying to understand) What Mabel?

Mabel – Look over here. Don’t look at her. She will want to talk.

Nana – Well I can’t be rude.

Mabel – (looking down at her feet – under her breath) Don’t make eye contact.

Nana – (as she sees her friend and goes over to talk.) Oh hello…

Mabel – (sighing) ahhh….not only did you make eye contact, you made MOUTH CONTACT too!!!
