So many things, like this, so many so many times growing up, being told in some sugary voice to smile. Give us a smile. What? What’s wrong with that? Hey baby, how ’bout a smile? C’mon….What? You have a problem with smiling? Stop making such a big deal of things. C’mon, just a little smile.
You’re always seeing problems where there aren’t any. He’s just being nice.
It. doesn’t. feel. nice.
