Optional But Highly Recommended

“A smile is optional but highly recommended.”

The Angel,Tess said this to a young inmate in one of the episodes of ‘Touched By An Angel”.

smile is a facial expression formed by flexing the muscles near both ends of the mouth and by flexing muscles throughout the mouth.
