Well, looking sullen and miserable isn't quite the expression I expect from someone who "is enjoying the accomplishment of just being there". YMMV. And I don't want some slapped on fake smile either. You don't have to be all smiles and sunshine all the time. I'm not, to say the least, because I can't stand phoniness. No one is saying Gracie needs to be all sunshine and smiles. Just show that maybe she isn't torturing herself each time she goes out there?Maybe Gracie is enjoying the accomplishment of just being there. She doesn't owe anybody a happy face while she's skating.
