Sentence: It was picture day at college and Wendy was posing in front of a mirror,in her cap and gown,trying to decide what angle was her most flattering. She was not sure whether to look serious, because she had earned her degree and hoped to get an impressive job. Or whether she should smile and show off her expensive dental work and happy nature. She opted for the smile and figured it would help open doors for her at prestigious companies. She thought her charisma would sell to employers and attract the big-money firms. The ceremony was not until after lunch on that extremely hot day and the photos were just before the commencement activities. She posed, but the photographer was too quick. When she got her proofs back the next week, she woefully regretted her grindecision. "OMG, who is going to hire me now??" she asked herself. Her photo was slightly out of focus, her eyes were closed, her hair frizzed, her mascara starting to slide down her face, her lipstick a bit smeared, one earring missing and her real gold pendant had left a nice green ring around her neck. Her front teeth (top & bottom) housed large pieces of the spinach in the salad she had for lunch. The goofy smile she offered just added to the affect that she had inherited traits that made her look like a cross between a sweaty mime, with clown hair and shiny make-up and a toothless bumpkin! She dearly hoped they offered re-takes...soon!

Etymology: Grin (to smile or show amusement) & Indecision (doubt concerning two or more possible alternatives or courses of action; the trait of irresolution; a lack of firmness of character or purpose)
