The other day I was reading something, I forget what now but one of the characters "rolled her eyes" at another character. While I realize this is a standard thing, I still get the image of someone taking their eyes out and rolling them across the floor. And, makes me wonder if the other character caught them and gave 'em back.:-) Remember the pirate with the wooden eye in the movies? His went rolling several times.
Or their eyes met. Did they greet each other and shake little eye hands? Or he held her eyes. Ewwww...
Same thing with throwing body parts. For example, Jane threw her hand into the air. Again, I know what the author means but did she catch it when it came back down and how did she get it off in the first place?
Yes, these are kinda petty and probably more my own personal issues but we're writers. We should be able to say things better.
What do you think? Is it alright for someone to roll their eyes and so forth?
