Smile Power!

Margie: Would you look at this, sister? It's Smile Power Day today. Let me explain this to you. Instead of frowning and complaining all the time you can try smiling. I know you're not a happy person but you might have more friends if you'd smile more.

Go look in your broken mirror and practice.

Edna: Folks, do you hear how she talks to me? My lands, it's no wonder I don't have any reason to smile! Margie, if you want me to smile more then you're going to have to be a whole lot nicer.

Margie: When pigs fly or I marry Jensen Ackles. I'm as nice as I can be and you still don't smile. The only time I might think you're smiling is when your stomach hurts.

You'd feel much better, Edna, if you'd smile at everybody. Who knows? The neighbors might invite you over for a visit.

Edna: Margie, I don't know. It sounds like what you need is to smile more. That and a whole bushel full of prunes, you're awfully crabby today. Maybe you should go sit out on the porch and smile at the neighbors, let them enjoy your sunny disposition for awhile.

Margie: I suppose you're right, sister. This healthy diet is making me nuts plus I can't have my cough syrup. The only thing that makes me feel better is making you nuts too.

Edna: Lucky me. I'm going to go lock myself in the basement and smile for a while. And I'm taking the cough syrup with me.

I thought the tea is what made you smile. You've been misleading me. Don't send me tea then. I feel a cough coming on, ladies...send cough syrup AND I might need a paramedic, a firefighter or, perhaps, a margiedale to rub Vick's on my chest.

Trouble is, when *I* smile at other people, it's usually when I'm on public transport and end up squished up against the glass by a weirdo with wallopingly strong BO attempting to continue the conversation....

....or is that just me?
