That slightly crooked eyebrow, scrunched up nose and a mumble from the side of a curled mouth: "it was all right," before shuffling off to avoid discussing the matter any further. Some are less kind, one friend of mine called it something that cannot be repeated here, while a select few actually rather liked it. Me? I wrote the book on the 'bad smell' look."
