I found this in one of my notebooks and thought it was funny. Apparently Andrew and I must have been watching a nature show. This is the first thing I wrote down:

“Baboons raising their eyebrows is a sign of aggression.”

Next were my thoughts on this matter…

When I raise my eyebrows it’s a sign of a lot of things, but not usually aggression. It could mean that I’m really leary of someone.

“Okay, stay away from that lunatic!”

OR it might be more like this:

“Hey, look what I can do!”

Usually I can’t do what I wish I could do. Nevertheless, trying may make someone laugh. That makes it worth it.

Somedays raised eyebrows may be a sign that I’m under a great deal of duress and the world is coming to an end. My thoughts would likely be along these lines:

“No, I’m fine. Truly I am.”

Raised eye brows, unfortunately, can be a dead give away that I’m not fine whatsoever.

When Andrew raises his eyebrows he’s usually covering his snacks.

“Oh no, she’s gonna mooch in my bowl!”

    I had a boss that when he raised his eyebrows, it meant work through the problem and just get it done. 🌻


    1. Hehe. πŸ˜† Good! Glad I could help you to avert the danger of baboons with raised eyebrows. And glad your own eyebrows could get some excercise. 😁 Keep smiling. Be blessed Bridget!
