Kanush's Smile (2007)

There is nothing sweeter than a baby's smile and Kanush's is no different. However, the smile that I am talking of, isn't really a smile. It's what Kanush interprets to be a smile. I first told Kanush to smile when she was too young to know the meaning of that word. Therefore, she did the first thing that came to her head. She started alternately opening and closing her mouth very much like a cow chewing the cud. I howled with laughter and called the whole wide world to see her 'smile'. Big mistake. That became her smile. As she grew up she further refined her technique. She stopped alternating and instead only opened her mouth and showed her teeth. A casual bystander would think she wants her teeth brushed.
