Wow, I related.

Nope, not to that extent entirely, but enough. My teeth aren’t straight. I was a huge pain in the ass as a kid every time I had to lose a loose tooth, and my father’s hyper-seriousness about this made me even more scared. So I ended up with imperfectly aligned teeth and even till now am not completely comfortable smiling with my teeth showing.

I smile in selfies, with my mouth closed, so I can’t go beyond a threshold of apparent happiness. I feel you, Kyrie. I feel you a little.
