  1. Someone told me that I look tired. I told her I have kids, I think this is pretty much my face now. She looked stunned.

  2. Just reply, “no, I’ve been crying” and watch them squirm. Or try this, open your eyes wide, exaggerate a big smile and say, ” is this better”. Now go get some rest.

  3. Her: “You look tired.”
    Me: “Yeah, it’s probably from all that crazy sex I was having last night.”
    Him: “You look lie crap!”
    Me: “Yep it’s exhausting…being such a badass.” AYOOO

  4. Someone asked me, “Why do you look tired”?

    I replied, “You tell me”.

    He responded, “How would I know”?

    I answered, “No one else mentioned that, its only you. So you tell me why I seem that way to you”.

    This forced him to explain himself, Obviously it wan’t something he was comfortable doing. 😀 Lol
