Lately, Riley has been making this face:
I don't know where he learned it. Has Sloth been visiting his daycare while we're not around?
The Scrunchface, unlike Sloth, is awfully damn cute, but the boy demands that the Scrunchface is acknowledged and appreciated. It cannot be ignored. You must make the face back at him, along with the accompanying sound ("Heeeeeeee").
This can be a little embarrassing. Witness our experience last weekend while visiting a home improvement store with Riley in the backpack:
Sales guy: "Okay, that's all the hardware you'll need for these handles."
Riley (leering over the top of JB's shoulder, face fully in Scrunch Mode): "HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE."
Sales guy: "Heh. Isn't he cute. Anyway, that'll be–"
Sales guy: "Uh, that'll–"
Me (desperately scrunching my face back at Riley): "Heeeee. Heeeee."
Riley (slightly mollified): "Heeee."
JB: "Here. Debit card. Please just ring it up."
Later, in the parking lot:
JB: "Jesus. Between the two of you, I felt like I was stuck in that freaking Firefox ad."
