If you smiled you would be prettier.

Today I passed by someone in a car I pass by daily.  She's not attractive.  That's mean, I know but it's true. The look on her face every time I pass her (which is at least twice a day, see previous post) is a scowl.  Here's the deal, scowls are not attractive.  Have you not heard about the frown?  It takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.

So, The Man in My Life and I had a discussion.  "If ugly people smile, are they less ugly?"  I say "Hell yes!"  Exuberantly with smile on my face.  I know beauty is subjective but The Man in My Life is beautiful and the narcissist in me says I'm not too bad to look at either.  However, when we frown...not as pretty.  So if you are ugly already, Guess what?  Frowning is not your best bet.  You should smile.  Smile the God out of it.  Smile like you have no idea what is going on.  You may look totally clueless but that is so much better than looking ugly.

I love people.  You could be the ugliest ugly in Uglyville and guess what I'm gonna love you because you are a person and I just like you for existing.  However, if you've done a horrible crime, I won't like you even if you are ugly.  The ugly don't got no free pass here.  But if you are ugly and are willing to smile, a sincere smile, a "I am trying to see the good in all of this " smile, you are going to be a bit more beautiful in my mind.

Smile, baby smile.  I know it's hard.  Some days just don't deserve it but you will feel better.  And I am going to call you "Pretty!"
