    Hello, friends. Today I read this:

    When I recall him, I picture a small stocky man wearing a stern expression.

    I'd never seen this use of wear before. Is it current English?

    Thank you, Bones.

    I'd consider it current. I don't use it, though.

    From a song sung by many people - from The Everly Brothers in my childhood up to Aha! The song is called "Crying in the rain".

    Someday when my crying's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
    I may be a fool
    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
