Going under the knife...

Hey pretty people!

How are ya? I hope you had a lovely weekend. I most certainly did! From our date night on friday, staying home all day with nothing to do on Saturday, and spending some much needed quality time in God's presence... it was indeed, pretty good.

So I was at church on Sunday and heading to my seat, when one of my friends stopped me and said, "Berry you're always boning! Put a smile on your face! Everywhere you go, all the time, boning!" Of course that made me frown some more, but I remembered when someone told Cakes that she was surprised I said hi to her one Sunday and smiled at her. Do you also remember when I blogged that an usher told him someone said I was a snob?

Maybe I really just don't smile at all? Apart from being shy, a lot of times I'm so focused on where I'm going to (my seat, looking for Cakes, looking for cake), that it's the only thing on my mind, and I barely notice anything/anyone else. I usually have to be distracted to see what's happening around me. If I zero in on someone to say hi, usually for the next 5 minutes, my mind is focused on saying hello to everyone I see.

Anyways the point of this post is to bemoan and lament that I don't have a smiling face!!!! It's not fair :( I dunno how to remedy it. I can't possibly walk around with a smile plastered on my face (CONSCIENCE asks, WHY NOT?). So the next best thing is... Plastic Surgery!!!

Oui. I would have the surgeon turn up the sides of my mouth so that it looks like I'm always smiling. See examples below.

Great idea, right?

  1. LOL.. Interestingly from your posts, you 'sound' like a very chatty, smiley, friendly person.. I think it's time to channel your inner Berrydakara.blogspot.com friendliness/smiley-ness! And that's free, no need for going under the knife! lol xx

  2. You know what... I don't mind this surgery as I wish I had a smiley face. On the other hand when I do really smile at someone they are likely to become my friend. I kinda prefer faces that when they smile they light up the room rather than constant smiling faces, I don't trust constant smilers.

  3. I guess you have a straight face just like me, we hardly get to smile...I get accused of frowning a lot of times but I dont bother about that anymore.

  4. Hahaha! I am exactly like you. Either I'm focused on something or I'm just trying to form cool whereas I'm SHY! I hate admiiting that. It sounds so weak. I'll rather say I'm reserved. And sometimes I really don't SEE a particular person, like someone I'm supposed to know. Blame it on my undiagnosed shortsightedness. People say I look like a snub. But seriously am I supposed to move with a smile on my face like a mad person? Na wa o

  5. My dear you don't want a smiley face trust me! That is how everyone from janitors to blue chip CEOs be thinking you have the hots for them coz you smiled at them, It has a lot of benefits I achieve more because I approach people with a smile so they warm up to me real quick but my biggest disadvantage is all these men of all shapes, creed and colour who endlessly hit on me due to my smileyness:(

    1. Hmm. I get it!!! There was a time when people used to say I was too flirtatious, and they (mostly men) could read "something" in my eyes when I would smile. Lol.

  6. Awww maybe try and be more aware of your surroundings and of people who may be trying to get your attention. Also you can smile with your eyes aka SMIZE! Don't beat yourself up about it, a lot of people experience this too Xx

  7. i'm usually like that too, and i agree with 1+the one, you do sound like a very chatty person. and yes, maybe the world needs berrydakara.blogspot.com on your face. I absolutely love your down-to-earth nature.

  8. Berry you never cease to make me laugh, "so focused on where I'm going to (my seat, looking for Cakes, looking for cake)". You are not alone my dear, I was not born witha smilling face either and yes ppl think I'm a snob, infact some are just afraid or assume I don't like them. Oh well as far as i'm concerned it sounds like a personal problem from the ones complaining. That's just me. How can i be smiling all the damn time? Its not possible. Besides there were times I was smiling and, men specifically, take it as flirting, see wahala.

    1. I can sooooo relate to this one......In my sch felwship, d sisters complain to my sister's coordinator dat am wicked and unapproachable. And she had to tell them & I quote "be bold and meet Oma, then u will get to know that u don't judge a book by its cover"... My lecturer once said, "you frown all the time, why"...I was tempted to ask, do I?

    2. LOL @ OmoMakun.

  9. berry dont mind them, they say i have that face too but i noticed when i smile, i get the wrong people around me. so i figured that boning was the best, only the bold and intelligent meanngful people can talk to me. (wide grin).
    You dont have to go under the knife to impress anyone, after all, lovely Mr cakes married you like that

  10. Ah Berry, you aren't alone o! I have ' the zoom' too. When I focus on one thing, person or task the rest fades temporarily. I've even been told I have 'sad' eyes cos it droops at the sides and people keep asking if anything worries me....but I'm super duper happy inside...lol...
    Then when I smile it's like a light switch....so whatevs....
    Pls don't go under the knife and have a perma 'smirk'.....lol

  13. Loool. I never expected the twist. I still find it hard to believe you don't smile often. Your personality seems like a smiling one.
