Body Language


Sometimes you don’t need the deets; the body language tells a story all its own. Granted, we don’t need if he could’ve had a V-8 or if he forgot her name, but we know he just had a lightbulb moment.


So what do y’all think about her posture here? Is that welcoming, or overarching? Is he getting all up in her personal space? Her smile says “yes,” but her lower back says “no.”
