If I offered you a smile would you take it?

The actor offered the photographers what he hoped was a winning smile, while one of the more competitive photographers offered his colleague a mean smile. Back at the office the journalist offered a smile that she hoped would reinforce to the editor the optimism she felt for her story about the actor. But the next day, shaking his head, the editor offered an apologetic smile as small consolation for a rejected article. On the way home the editor walked out of her way to go past the flower stall where the florist freely offered a smile to all who passed him. His next customer offered a smile but it failed to reach her eyes. She ordered flowers for a friend to say sorry. When the flowers arrived, the friend offered a smile of forgiveness that no-one saw.
