1. Do you often smile?
It’s funny to think about it, but I actually do smile pretty often. I’m a pretty upbeat180 person. I like looking
on the bright side of things. So that means I usually have a smile on my face, especially when I’m talking to friends and family. It’s always best to wear a smile.
2. Do you smile when people take pictures of you?
Yes, I definitely smile if I’m getting my picture taken. It’s always good to look happy in a photo. It makes you look better, to be honest. Plus, nobody wants to look back at old photos and see someone who looks miserable181. So I make a point of 182 smiling for pictures.
3. When do people give fake smiles?
I think people give fake smiles when they’re getting their pictures taken. You know, if they’re having a good time, the smile might be real. But a lot of times183, you have to smile if someone takes a picture just because it’s polite. You might just be posing for a photo184 and not smiling for real.
4. Can you recognize a fake smile?
Well, sometimes it’s hard to tell185. My sister is really good at fake-smiling. If you didn’t know her well, you would think it was real. But sometimes you can tell if people aren’t smiling for real. Fake smiles are usually too big to be natural. They look really stiff186 and awkward187.
5. When do people smile to others?
I guess people smile at others when they,re happy to see them. For example, if you have a good friend that you haven’t met up with in a while, you would probably smile when you finally see them. People also smile when they greet other people, whether they’re close or not.
6. When was the last time that you saw many people smile?
Um …the last time I saw lots of people smile was in a movie theatre. We were all watching the newest Marvel movie188. There was a really funny scene189, and when I looked around, everyone was smiling and laughing. Personally, I busted a gut laughing190. It was nice that we could all enjoy the movie together.
