A few weeks ago, someone told me that something they always found curious about Bulgarians was that we never smiled in pictures. Hmmm. Really?! I mean... REALLY?!
So, what is a girl to do, I shared the observation with my friends on Facebook and what followed was a pretty hilarious discussion.
What was interesting about it was that nobody really questioned the claim. People simply disagreed over WHY that was the case. So, of course, now I've got to ask YOU: have you noticed that Bulgarians don't smile in pictures so much? And, if you have, why do you think that is the case?
As I am typing this, I keep thinking of one of my favorite sites, Awkward Family Photos, and wonder if we could do a similar version of our own, picturing Bulgarians that refuse to smile. Go back to your photo albums, do some research and report back!
P.S. I keep forgetting to mention this, but if you enjoy reading this site, you should friend me on Facebook! Also, please join the How to Marry a Bulgarian group and tell your friends about it!
P.P.S. The drawing above is by moi and it's titled "Spot the Bulgarian". If you like it and want to have it, I would be more than happy to mail it to you. Drop me a line and we'll make arrangements.
P.P.P.S. Later this week, I've got two more interviews coming up in the Life in the Trenches Series.
