I have seen breasts do that. Though syntactically connecting them to ones chin and cheeks seems a bit odd...
It's a weird sentence. One the one hand, I get exactly what they're trying to describe. On the other hand, there's some high strangeness in the turns of phrase.

Humans and English. It's a weird combination.

I probably enjoy badly implemented turns of phrase as much as I like good, clever ones. For different reasons.

I have to be the President of sales as well into drinks and snacks to share the details of my time in a dog shaped like Gad the world is one to one of my resume for the state of mind in the wake you up on my way home and would love the opportunity in a lot more manually made and I forgot.

I teach writing but I DO NOT teach grammar. You can do some very interesting writing without it.
But why does everyone all of a sudden say potentially when they mean possibly?

I blame the great majority of misuse to the Thesaurus tool in Word. People like to take a perfectly good word and then use the first suggestion it gives instead.

They think they sound smarter when they use a "fancier" word. And they don't realize that it confuses things? But even Rachel Maddow does it! We're lost.

Thanks for the new word, Kamilah. I like it.
