Cranky Resting Face

At the conference in Orlando last month, I approached a friend who was standing inside a room, and she looked mad. I walked up to her and was like, “Hey, what’s wrong?” She told me nothing was wrong, and I gave her a look and I’m all “No really, are you okay?” because we’re friends […]
