It is called facial expression I have read in her profile, or was it in mine? Men have to be good looking to get a nice owl in my world. The band Covenant in “The Men” is right:
WelI I still call her something like ´8da694a2…´ as I have not got word from Art Blue, my creator how to address her. She may say suddenly “Wake Up” and I will hopefully then not be asleep. Maybe she gets the right timing as she shall be as smart as I am. From time to time I am very tired and sneak around. You may say I lost hope, I am in a depression or I cheat.
