Loser's Guide to Life
I used to know someone who, every time she yawned, it looked like she was screaming in horror, but she was just yawning. She would make a quiet noise like “khkhkhkhkhaaaaawwwwwhhghgh”, but no screaming. But it used to scare me anyway. Watching her, you might think that not only was she screaming in horror, but that you'd also gone deaf.
I've decided not to talk about this, however. Robert McKee, who has taught screenwriting to about four hundred million writers for over three hundred years, says, “Find out what's not important, and don't write about it.” I think this might be one of those things.
