Kadin told me when we first met that he thought I looked mean. He said there was something he liked about mean girls. He didn't so much mean mean as he meant strong or tough.
I'm not mean. I'm strong (usually) and honest. And if I look mean sometimes, it's because I'm concentrating or lost in my thoughts. So if you're walking past me on the street, don't tell me to smile (I hate that) because I am--on the inside.
