This technique is also used by preeteens
and other people who haven't quite figured out how to flirt
. From personal experience, some examples might be: teasing
, ice down the shirt
, pulling pigtails
, stealing schoolbooks
, making faces
, stealing jello at lunch

Susie: HEY, CALVIN! Are we near a slaughterhouse, or did you forget your deodorant?!
Calvin: DROP DEAD, SUSIE! You're so ugly, I hear your mom puts a bag over your head before she kisses you goodnight!!
Calvin: It's shameless the way we flirt.
