    I do what all other females do, freak out and touch every centimeter of my face until you tell me it's gone...

    Have you ever told someone they had something stuck in their teeth and they say something sheepish or defensive like, "I know. I wanted it there." ?

    I've a coworker that said that... I think he was so afraid to make a low impression of himself that he didn't want to admit that spinach in his teeth was not a weakness for which any of us would've held it against him... of course his response made me think, "How pathetic." Heheh... :)

    I was thinking... "Riiiiiiight. So now we're putting spinach in our teeth as a new trend in mouth decorations!"

    When someone points out you've got a booger, thank them. I'd want to know if I had one. it's a simple matter of common courtesy, not their attempt to point our your character flaws... sheesh. :)

      I usually quip something like that; I thought I was just making jokes but you just made me realize I obviously have serious issues with my self esteem.

      Either that, or someone just needs to lighten up :-)

    Naturally, I'd grab *your* left cheek, and walk off with it ;-)

    Wonder if there were a multi-legged creature there....

      Why the qualifier? I think I'd be equally concerned with a zero or one legged creature on my cheek.

      When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

        Obviously it has to have two legs if it has a left and right cheek, as the cheeks are just above each leg. :)

        I'm a bit concerned, the advocacy of this poll... grabbing cheeks... aren't we getting a bit cheeky?

    I wonder - how can I have something on *your* left cheek

    Examine my face in a mirror. (Update: get horrified on how bad my hair looks. Try to fix hair. Forget about the something on my cheek entirely.)

    Exception is if I'm in the crazy building Z of the university which is ten stories high but doesn't have a mirror in any men's room, nor even traces to show that there ever was a mirror installed. In that case, I'd try to rub my cheek with a paper tissue.

    Interestingly, I touched my left cheek as I read it -- but if I'd seen you do it, I might have touched my right cheek.

    Good question. People that does not use the mirror convention could be tracked also on other behaviours.
