I would consider trying Botox just to give my forehead a break.

My forehead is exhausted.
I’m not alone. For instance, my girlfriend confided in me recently that the number-one thing her parents taught her was: be stressed.
They didn’t mean to. They gave sage advice. But their life spoke for itself: if you’re not worried about something, you’re not thinking hard enough about everything.
My forehead can relate. It’s a stressful world; it’s reasonable to be stressed!
