Ahem, my contribution (in quotes):
“It happens that during the course of my day I may chance to look in a mirror, oh–three or four times, on average?
And when I do, I see a kind of deep darkness in my eyes, more than just their colour, that I have seen in both my mother and father before me.
Invariably, my lips will part and bend upwards.”
SLEEP TIGHT, KIDS!
