gaze of death
A judge rules that the X-Men are not human and inadvertently causes me to repost an old entry.
Beware the gaze
Converstation of the day:
scene: Person visiting in my office. We are making small talk while he waits for a file.
Person: You have a very disconcerting habit.
Me: What's that?
Person: You don't look people in the eye when you are having a conversation with them.
Me: Eh, it's that whole "Gaze of Death" thing.
Me: Yea. If I look at someone too long they burst into flames. Just a small, weird power I was born with.
Person: You're a....mutant?
Person: So....how's Professor X?
Me: Doing good.
Person: Ok, send him my regards.
Me: Will do.
And once again, I evade a discussion about how I don't look at people when I talk to them.
