Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
Sira. He is the man of faces. The physical comedian in the house. Bereket laughs at people falling down, Sira falls down for a laugh. But he can cry over crumbs too. Like the other night during -- now say this monotoned & full-volume -- The Worst Family Barbecue Ever! Cried over ketchup while I cried over the kid crying over ketchup. Or this morning, the whole morning before leaving on the bus . . . crying. (I think I heard it stop the moment I stepped off the bus, just like the bus driver said it would.) So Sira, just smile. Me too.
This will make us smile . . . a montage of Sira's funny faces. Seems lately turning the camera on Sira sparks off expression city. Watch it, you'll feel all warm and fuzzy and wait for those few baby shots near the end. In the words of Shaggy, like wow.
