      Oh, but I’m not sure that they do. It’s similar to when a man tells a woman – ususally one he doesn’t know – to “Smile.” It’s not about the woman.

    I almost always have a smile on my face. Not always a genuine one, though. It was early conditioning. Don’t let them see your pain. No matter what.

    So…few have ever said that line to me. Interesting ?

      Van, it may be a turn of phrase I see more in writing, but it’s still similar to when people say things like “you’ll think this is funny” or “this will make you laugh” or “Smile!”

      The conditioned-to-smile is a big topic. I actually trained myself to stop it. I still smile a lot but never on command.
