Darren Rowse at ProBlogger has a new group writing project: Top 5. The rules are simple:
"Be as creative as you’d like - take it in any direction you want as long as it relates to the topic".
Poker players call it "the tell", those little signals you give off while playing the game. The raised eyebrow when you fill out that straight; which hand you use to push your chips forward. You may not play high-stakes poker, but there are plenty of situations where you want to be careful not to give away your thoughts, and none may be more important than when you are being audited, by the IRS or some other government regulator.
As a service to you, dear reader, I offer the Top 5 Faces NOT to Make During an Audit. They may make the auditor wonder if there's something you're not telling them...
Please note, that if you are an auditor, you should add these to your repertoire!
If you are new to Spooky Action, please feel free to look around. Here's a bonus Top 5 - Favorite Posts on This Blog:
