When i was asked to produce a smile a week, i though, i really don't feel like producing a smile a year at this very moment. So i thought, if i had to produce these smiles , they would have to be forced. I was listening to a song at the time in which there is a line,, ''Pin a smile on my face and build a fortress round my heart'' At the time I found this very apt and so decided to literally 'pin a smile on my face'. Of course i didn't actually pin my face i used my knowledge of makeup and prosthetics, love of the macabre and theatrical.
Sometimes pinning a smile on is the only way.
