A look of disgust on her face as she reads from her iPhone

The first few times I saw this shot of me (that I was not aware was being taken at the time), I laughed harder than I’ve laughed in a while, repeatedly.

After I shared it around and laughed at it a bit, I looked back at it and suddenly, all I saw in my face was excruciating pain that I can now not unsee, even though it can still also be a little funny too at the right angle.

Either way it really was when it was shot, this image fits as my Facebook profile picture, because surely that’s what I was doing. And it’s a pretty descriptive distillation of my lot, too, that little story I had with this image. What a cool gift.
