    Default smiling alone in public

    i was in a mall earlier to search for something. while walking i thought of something funny and i started smiling. i kept smiling until i noticed some filipino lady was staring at me. as i tried to stop, my asshole of a brain kept bringing the funny thing up even though i was consciously trying to suppress it.

    then i started wondering, why the hell was i trying to stop smiling? whats wrong with smiling? its a pleasant expression. its a natural manifestation of human happiness. yet there seems to be this undiscussed stigma about smiling while by yourself. smiling at, presumably, nothing seems kinda weird, but it shouldnt. id prefer to see a plethora of smiling faces than an army of expressionless stares which are infinitely more common.

    yeah, funny things pop into my head and i smile/chuckle when im walking around alone a reasonable bit. im sort of surprised you dont see it more often, maybe these people's brains just arent very funny.

    Or maybe it does happen a lot but no one notices really because yet are too busy either worrying about what other people are thinking of them or laughing too much to themselves to care to notice others.

    people think that the person smiling knows something that they don't. it puts them off
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    When I'm smiling for whatever reason I like to look random strangers in the eyes. 4/5 times they'll smile back without knowing why.

    I just like to sit on benches for hours upon hours, doing nothing but staring off in front of me and smiling

    Happens to me.

    Also I once started smiling about something in class and my teacher thought I was laughing at her.
