|Which Hurts More?|
Whatever the correct figures, the fact is that nobody has ever done an accurate count. The purpose of the aphorisms is actually to say that smiling makes one feel better than frowning does.
Have you ever tried walking around all day with a smile on your face? It’s tiring and your cheeks will begin hurting. Smiling is unnatural. But if you let your face relax, it droops down into a natural mini-frown. And after a day of that, do you think your cheeks will hurt? Heck no.
Consequently, this is my conclusion: Smiling tires you out; natural frowns do not.
