The Chinese Face

This is what we affectionately refer to as the "Chinese face." It's hereditary, passed down on my side of the family. It has shown up early in my offspring, which just proves how much of a genius she is.

Seriously, I have dozens of childhood photos of myself, my mother and her sister all making a face like this. Something about a camera makes us squint our eyes shut and grin. It really drives my grandfather batty.

Some people get excited when little "Timmy" shows signs of having father's throwing arm, or little "Becky" shows a flare for cooking just like her mother, and I get excited when my daughter shows how retarded one can be in front of a camera. God bless us, we're gonna need it.
