Hello World!

I absolutely hate getting my photo taken for ID cards. All last year I had this shot of me with an inane grin on my learner's permit. I had to go and renew it the other day, and this time decided not to smile as much. However, the camera caught me just before the smile, my mouth half-open - which made me look like a gormless twit.

Why do we always look our worst on the cards we have to show to everyone?
