The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many times have you heard it?

"Don't pull that face, if the wind changes you'll be like that forever."

I must admit, it's been a while since that was used in our family, perhaps my mother was the last to issue this salutory warning, it's so long ago.

It's interesting to reflect though, on how prophetic that once meaningless expression really was. With the advent of the internet, allowing immediate access to about twenty percent of the world's population, and digital cameras of one form or other to be found in about every square metre of most developed countries at least it follows that very little of what we do or say is not recorded in some manner or other.

It's bad enough, when someone catches you unawares, or simply completely off guard, but kiddies, when you know someone is taking your picture, and they ask you to "smile", it's just not smart to pull a face.

If you don't believe me, ask Chuck why that is.
