When my students get out of line, I give them this Look. They call it the Evil Eye, and it really works on a good number of them.
It runs in the family. My mom tries it out on me, but I'm almost immune to her Look. Last summer, my grandmother gave her the look and almost took me out as collateral damage. I was cowering under the table after that one.
And here's more proof that it runs in the family.
That's my sister, Katie, waiting in the courthouse to get married to Will. I don't know why she gave him the Look, but he probably deserved it.
When my students saw that picture, they said, "Ms. Cook! You know she's your sister because she can give the Look, too!"
