Here's the conversation at the counter, when I stepped up to order:
Me: "Good morning."
Employee: "Good morning, how are you?"
Me: "I'm happy, thanks!"
Employee (with a strange look): "You're happy?"
Me: "Yes, I'm happy!"
Employee: "Good for you!"
We then discussed how, if you set your mind to it, it's easy to be positive and happy every day because life is too short and most irritations really aren't worth the effort.
So, how about you? Are you happy?
