A Surfeit of Smiles.

I’ve come to the considered opinion that few things embody feminine grace and beauty as well as Chinese traditional dancers, but I do wish they’d dispense with the obligatory smiling. It reminds me of those daft-looking synchronised swimmers with pegs on their noses.

So come on, ladies. There’s a time to smile, a time to scowl, and a time to be inscrutable. You of all people should know that inscrutability is one of the most potent forms of expression. It drips mystery.

...just in case you want to see what I mean.
