The giveaway

At the doctor’s the other day, the nurse had to prick my finger for a blood sample. When she was done I said, “That wasn’t so bad. I always expect it to be worse.”

She smiled and said, “I could tell you were nervous. Your feet gave you away. The feet always give people away.” She was right. I’d curled my toes and shook my left foot almost loose at the ankle. She rolled her eyes and added, “Men are the worst.”

What tick have you noticed in people that give them away? How could you work it in a story?
