Let a Squint be your Umbrella
When the sun is shining brightly and I am wearing my cheap sunglasses (they should make a song about that) I find that I squint a lot. The squint action causes my cheeks to tighten and then I look like I'm smiling.
I have had many people return my *smile*
At first I thought there was something wrong - skirt tucked into my underwear, toilet paper dragging from my shoe, those sorts of things but then I caught a glance of myself in a large window and sure enough I looked like I was smiling.
The worker bees inside gave a wave, a nod and also the uplifted chin in the younger generation 'sup?' version of a nod.
The thought then crossed my mind as to what they thought was going on with me.
just saw someone do something ridiculous?
just won money on the lottery?
It doesn't matter really.
My squint made them smile - their smile made me smile.
Thank goodness for cheap sun glasses.
