Me too. Words sound differently when said while smiling. I worked briefly as a radio announcer when I was a student and that’s the first thing they taught us: when on air, everything you say, say it while smiling, which suited me perfectly (of course, I wasn’t reading the news, I was in charge of a music program).
And they actually ARE just like us. I even joke by asking them ‘Are you in your PMS stage right now?’ when they’re having a rage bout around me. Sometimes it breaks the rage, sometimes it makes it bigger, but I can’t help myself and I end up dealing with the consequences, whatever they are. Usually, clever people see things like they are beyond the hormone ridden reaction, get over the moment and get on with things.
