To any of you out there who have wondered, I am NOT mad at you. That just happens to be my default face. You know, the expression that your face naturally rests in when you are relaxed? Some people are fortunate enough to have a bright and pleasant default face that makes you think “boy, they must have a really peaceful and fulfilling life.” THEN there is MY default face that makes you consider “man, why are his panties in such a bunch?”
SO, again, I am not mad at you. I am not grumpy. I am not annoyed or even slightly perturbed (well, I might be so just play it safe and cater to my needs.) I quite enjoy my life. I think it is swell.
This also goes to mention that if you see me relaxed with a pleasant look upon my face . . . it is an active attempt to look that way and you should be impressed.
Next, the “verbal smile”. It’s not a courtesy laugh, its a VERBAL SMILE.
