I always thought that when I first got wrinkles they would be smile lines and that I'd be happy with that because how can any sign that you've been smiling be a bad thing? I automatically like and trust people strangers with wrinkles from smiling a little bit more than other people, which isn't actually the best idea because what if they've been smiling because they really enjoy all that murdering they do? Anyway, the point is that smile lines would be a sign that I'd been having more joy that I probably deserved and were thus a good sign.

But it's bloody frowning, brow furrowing wrinkles instead. That's not a sign of too much happiness! That's a sign of depression and moodiness! But... but... Joy! Happiness! SMILE LINES, DAMMIT.

Writing this I'm frowning at the screen so that's really only making matters worse. I think it's because my natural default expression is frowny brow-furrowy girl until someone looks at me. My natural expression has thwarted all of my life plans!

Ditto. I think it's because your forehead generally has less padding on it, whereas cheeks are fatter and so the wrinkles don't start there until later. This is my totally unscientific reasoning but it makes sense to me.

(Although in my case the frown lines are because I have chronic bitchface (http://blog.krisatomic.com/?p=1617).)

That's true, I do have very chubby cheeks. I was poking them in the mirror this morning and noticed this. I will blame my face fat, hurruh!

Chronic bitchface, that comic is me!

Botox! Anti-aging creams! Or... be happy with the evidence that you have LIVED and thought DEEP THOUGHTS?

I will leave my deep thoughts! Maybe one day in future I might flail and decide the wrinkles must go, but hopefully I can remain happy with them. Signs of a life lived and all that.

They're not very noticable wrinkles, and you're only 27 so you're okay really. It's when your 10 yr old step-sister insists she has crow's feet that you start to worry what goes on in peoples' heads.

Now excuse me while I go and prod my face in front of a mirror.

I'm not really worried about it, it's just not the wrinkles I had been waiting for!

Your little sis makes me sad :(

We were quick to tell her that she was dreaming and to stop worrying. But then, she does get some odd ideas in her head, that girl.

Laugh at your wrinkles, that will even them up
