i cannot even tell you how much i can relate to this amazing art piece by kris atomic. i have been called out on my "bitch face" ever since i can remember. i have had people tell me "why don't you smile more." or "gosh, you would look much prettier if you smiled." well... i'm sorry if i am offending you, stranger at the super market, but that really is just the way my face looks. i tend to smile with my mouth closed. (i suppose i am self conscious of my little teeth.) it's a habit that i am actually trying to break. also... my mouth turns down at the corners naturally, so if i am not SUPER DUPER SMILING then sometimes you cannot tell i am smiling at all. i have had countless strangers, readers and commenters give me their opinions on my smile. sadly i think i suffer from the above... and that's just me. so now that i've explained, maybe the opinions will stop? probably not, but a girl can dream.
