*"When I say purse your lips, purse lips, okay?”

Well, this was what my colleague told me (the one in the middle) when I suggested a groupie (selfie in a group) of us three. This picture was shot 2 years ago when we attended the birthday celebration of the daughter of another colleague. (I have another discussion with a picture of us three with our eyes close). I mentioned that we were doing some wacky shots- eyes closed, pursing lips, and smirking. I posted the ‘eyes closed’ picture, and this one is supposed to be a ‘lip pursing’ shot; but alas! I wasn’t lip pursing at all. When the other 2 colleagues saw this picture, both of them slapped my shoulders, laughing, and said that I did not lip purse as expected. I told them I wanted to be unique; thus, the picture. Do you do more wacky shots with somebody you are comfortable with? I do.

I do sometimes with my family. I think this is the best time to bond and be captured in camera.

yes, taking wacky shots with the family is good; it removes the gap, if there is, among family members.

I do not like selfies and groupies and I also do not like very much to have photos of me taken.

@LadyDuck i can no longer recall how you look like with that picture, my friend. but it is better that your avatar is that of a woman and not another living thing.

well, for me, it is the funny side of me. not the serious face, professional face, but the face that not everybody gets to see it.

@ridingbet When I was still active in my profession (teacher), I didn't always show a serious face. On the contrary. Pupils react positively when a lesson is occasionally funny. My funny side is more verbal, however. I never make grimaces to make someone laugh.

@MALUSE that is good. i smile as always when i am in the area, and that is what i tell my students as well. i tell them to show their sincere and genuine smile when interacting with their patients, because a patient seeing a serious face may not accept the interventions done by my student. "Smile, even though in your minds, you are angry at me", that is my statement to them.

@jobelbojel i see you have a caricatured avatar. so, showing your wacky shot will eventually reveal your face, right? yes, i believe it takes enough strength to show "thy face". hahaha! but if you have gathered much, then, this site is always to see you in your wackiest shot in your own discussion.
