Grimlock ♥ Vision

I'm a well read technosexual who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.

Miss Tonks Turns to Crime - M.C. Beaton

"His eyes caressed her."   Um, no.  This implies his eyes detached from his head, presumably attached to stalks of some kind, and caressed her.  I always see this when writers use 'eyes' instead of 'gaze.'   Here's the deal, authors.   Everyone does it.  It is still wrong.   I will continue to giggle like a schoolgirl who had to translate 'humptius dumptius' when I see this.

 

True story and the Latin teacher spent an hour trying to get sixteen year olds not to laugh at that.   I assume he never made that mistake again.   So, yeah, I giggle loudly for hours about the weird shit eyes get up to in books...
