    Love the latest episode. However, Leslie does this one thing that is a bit distracting sometimes. She often says “You were shaking your head…”. When people shake their head, it’s from left to right, in the negative. Nodding the head is up and down, in the affirmative. So please start saying “You were nodding your head”!
