When I was younger, I remember my mom picking me up one day after school and asking me what was wrong? I said, “nothing, why?” She said that my face looked mad as if something had happened at school. It hadn’t. I thought hmmm…that’s weird, I was in a perfectly good mood. Recently, I was searching through pictures from my childhood and it hit me…oh my goodness, I think I have Angry Resting Face. There were TONS of pictures of me as a little girl with this cranky look on my face! ha ha I know if you have ever heard this term, angry is usually replaced with the B word but since I don’t curse on my blog, we’re going with the word angry instead. I mean the Today Show even did a whole story on BRF!
Apparently ARF continued into my adulthood. A few years ago while at a charity event raising money for sick and injured kids at a Children’s Hospital, an internet reporter took a picture of me. He even labeled it something like “Cindy’s ugly face” in his article. I laughed so hard when a co-worker sent it to me because A. Come on look at this picture, it IS awesomely angry and B. Why wasn’t he focusing on the sick kids instead of demeaning me? But anyway, look at my face in the picture above and all of these childhood pictures…ANGRY RESTING FACE. It’s especially funny to me because I am such a genuinely happy person and anyone who knows me, knows this. Apparently though, when not smiling, I look like such a cranky girl! Judging from these pictures, I am gonna have to work on this!
Am I alone? I need to know, does anyone else have Angry Resting Face? 🙂
