Smiling Tattoo

January 4, 2017

“I just have one of those faces. People come up to me and say, ‘What’s wrong?’


‘Well, it takes more energy to frown than it does to smile.’ 

Yeah, you know it takes more energy to point that out than it does to leave me alone?”

Bill Hicks

I’ve a similar problem,  more so from thinking too much, rather then facial structure.  Yet,  am aware it is an unfortunate relatively permanent scowl.

Been working on a solution to solve two problems at once.  One being, plastering on a smile like Jack Nicholson had as the Joker.

Then, tattooing some words on my face that reads.  “An angry look on your face, all the time”

So while smiling and seeing someone approach to read the tattoo,  they’ll ask.

Why do you have an angry look on you face all the time?

So that I can immediately respond by saying that I have been smiling all day and am not sure what they are talking about.

To which, whomever can finish reading the rest of the tattoo that will read.

“don’t say anything more, this guy is far sighted, and he is smiling all the time because he thinks he has the Ten Commandments tattooed on his face”

Which is solving at least one of my many problems of being able to communicate the paradoxical take my brain has on constantly seeing both sides of a situation and being hampered by whether or not it is appropriate to say something.

“What we’ve got here, is failure to communicate”

From the movie “Cool Hand Luke”

Let that person walk away befuddled and confused as to decide if they should let me actually know what is written on my face.

After all,  if it’s tattooed and permanent,  they are only peeing on my parade, if they let me know.

That’s the way my brain works, I feel that way all the time, befuddled and confused.
