Every choice of words in a dialogue must reflect the character.
Try to go one day without writing that your muse did any of the big five:

Instead, try to convey your muse’s emotions with unique body language: toe curling or the staccato of fingers tapping on the counter, a barking laugh or sparkling eyes.
