    Sarcastic Grin?

    I don't usually smile. Mostly somewhat of a sarcastic grin if u can call it that. I force a really convincing fake smile when I'm at work in front of customers though but i don't think that counts.

    Probably Not.

    I hate getting my picture taken. I guess I always have. Even when I was a kid it was hard for me to fake a smile. Like for professional/school pictures.. Always awkward. But yeah, I probably don't smile enough lol..
