This is my mom in her natural state... frowning.
This is my mom smiling under pain of death. Just kidding, more like pain of losing my company tonight while we watch The Biggest Loser.
She reminds me of Finis Everglot (Victoria's father in the movie Corpse Bride) in the scene when he meets Victor's parents for the first time. His wife nudges him and he has the most fantastic forced smile ever. In the YouTube clip below, it's about 6 minutes in.
Seriously, mom- CHEER UP! And sorry for comparing you to someone called Finis Everglot, that's not very kind.
