I am an American Destiny Quester and incidentally am a student of language (I translate Korean by profession, but the interesting thing about language is that studying another language causes you to think more critically about your own). I have noticed in passage 864 and, I think, somewhere in the previous orange quest from act 3 of the first book, the phrase "blows out his cheeks." This is interesting to me because I assume it's a gesture that wouldn't but unfamiliar to me--but this description leaves me at a loss. I assume it's a phrase that is common in British English, but, y'know, we are two nations divided by a common language. What the hell is blowing out your cheeks?
