And have a nice day...

So, here we come walking across the parking lot and some middle-aged woman who should surely know better asks "Why don't you smile?". The natural rejoinder, of course, was "We are smiling?". This led to the usual nonsense about "spreading cheer". (Since when are we responsible for your moods?? Go cheer yourself up and leave others alone.) As a parting shot, we mentioned the old saw about 13 muscles being needed for smiling, 26 muscles required for frowning and noted that equanimity requires the use of no muscles.
