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.
