All my life I'm getting admonishments from those brave enough — like mom — to "smile." It's not a natural facial expression for me, folks, even when I'm plenty happy and content. Plus, my natural frown serves me well. People don't fuck with me, and they don't pester me. They tend to stand off and I've heard from others that I come off as "unapproachable." Suits me fine. The less banality I have to deal with, the better, I say.
So let me throw you a rare bone, taken just this week with my bro-in-law, Sam who's looking good into his 50s.
