It’s that hand-in-the-cookie-jar, love-me-Mommy-because-I’m-a-rascal look. It’s A.U. twelve, fifteen, seventeen, and twenty-four, with an eye roll.

Paul Ekman describing Bill Clinton’s favorite expression, as noted during the 1992 Democratic primaries. Years before Clinton was on trial, Ekman was able to detect this personality flaw of his just by watching him on TV. That skill is amazing, but really, the best part of this quote is the “with an eye roll.” Hilarious.
