Day 917 - Evil Eye

As is typical during dinner, Emma refused to eat her vegetables. After some polite begging and pleading on our part, we drew the line in the sand and told Emma if she didn't eat any vegetables, then she would not receive dessert. Instead of the expected crying or throwing of the plate, we got a different response from her: an evil eye.

Personally, I thought it was really creepy. It wasn't just a simple stare with narrowed eyes; after all, we Asians have narrowed eyes to start out with. But Emma tilted her head down and glared at us with her eyes looking up. To make it extra creepy, all that was missing was a violin soundtrack and a crisp, chilly wind -- which Andrew actually provided...except it was stale and warm.

I hope Emma does not continue with the evil eye because in the history of the evil eye, it has almost always ended with something awful happening. Take these evil eyes for instance...

Alex from A Clockwork Orange.
Singin' in the rain, anybody?

The Evil Witch from Snow White.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away...BECAUSE YOU'RE DEAD.

Jack Torrance from The Shining.
Hello, room service? There's a tidal wave of blood in my room.

Mike from Monsters Inc.
You try putting a contact lens in that eye.
