When You're Smiling... the whole world smiles with you...

you know that song right? I was thinking it was Sinatra... and I was partially right - but it seems that every big name tried to put their spin on this song... Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin -- and Michael Buble... whose name STILL just bugs me. seriously.

The gist of the song is that when you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you... but let's be honest... that just isn't true is it? I mean... c'mon - sometimes when you're smilin' the whole world is thinking there has GOT to be something wrong with that perpetually chipper freak...

and not all smiles are equal - maybe that isn't politically correct... but some smiles are definitely more the type you want to smile along with... and some... well...


some just make the whole world stand up and run from the room screaming.


some cause the more cynical among us to make sure your parents are nearby with the diaper bag...


some make me glad for the lock on my bedroom door.  No creepy pets allowed.


and some make me want to put stronger locks on my girls' doors.


and some I just have to include so that my fellow blogger friends have a reason to scream today. (you're welcome Kristina) but really... that's a pretty smarmy smile - kinda makes me want to take a swing at those teeth!

I've tried smiling to get everyone to smile with me. Some people just do NOT feel like it. Maybe I was smiling like the Joker:)

Smiles are never good...

The name still bothers me, too, but one time he winked at me (through the TV) and I've basically been in love ever since:)

Your creepy pet picture disturbs me almost as much as the AC Slater picture disturbs Kristina.

Long haired creepy guy (can't remember his name, favio or somesuch nonsense)
Ick.

I'm sure Kristina is now sucking her thumb.

You are a giver.

T said...

what is it with guys whose names end in "io" anyway???

my apologies to Kristina - tomorrow will be all sunshine and happiness... oh wait, actually it's more along the lines of scaring small children - that's right up your alley though right?

That is oh so true. The world smiles because they love a happy face and want to know what makes your light shine. Plus, in your point of view while you're smiling, you don't care if anyone is frowning because you're too busy being happy.

Erm, did I just confuse me?

HAHA!! Kristina will surely send the GOON SQUAD after you now!! ;p
Love your smile pix and captions... made me... SMILE!!
You forgot the FAKE smile... You know, the one where you smile trying to hide that inside you just can't smile... *sigh*
And where's the friendly smile that always makes you want to smile back no matter what kind of day it is... ;D
OH!! AND just so you know... my dogs SMILE! HEHEHE!!
(((HUGS)))

Is that the guy from Saved by the Bell? Loved that show in the day :) Yes, some smiles are so scary, and what about the sarcastic smile? Hate that one. There are definitely a lot of different kinds of smiles. The baby one is my fav :)
