When I Am Happy

Daily Prompt: Happy Radars
Are you a good judge of other people’s happiness? Tell us about a time you were spot on despite external hints to the contrary (or, alternatively, about a time you were dead wrong).


I can’t say for other people. Some hide their happiness, as if it is a frail thing which will break if they show it, or others will steal it away.

Some hide their bad news, because they fear people will be so despicable to gloat over their misfortune.

When I am happy, I like to shout that I am happy this moment. When I am sad, tears are ready to fall at the slightest pretext.

Happiness knocked at my door
Opened the door to let it in

Another knock came
And sadness stepped in

I can’t protect myself
From one of them

I will be just happy
For sadness to stem

Here is a happy song:

I love this old Barney song
