I have to remember to smile. That was the main complaint I always read about her in the papers and blogs – that she never smiled, she was always pursing her lips or keeping a look of utter impassivity on her face. I secretly admired that quality in her, especially toward the end. It’s easy to keep a blank face when you’re unquestionably in charge, but once the wheels start to fall off the bus and the whispering begins, a quiver here and there is only to be expected. But she never cracked. Obviously I’m hoping (not hoping, that’s passive, aiming) for a much longer and more positive outcome that her, but if the same fate were to befall me – a loss of confidence in the staff, a betrayal by the board, public skewering – I’m not sure I could hold my face as still as hers. A frown now and then would surely slip through.
