Motiveless joy

People are often suspicious of casual, inexplicable joy. It depends on the context. When you're at a party and everybody's having fun, nobody will look at you sideways for your meaningless joy. However, when you're walking down the street and everybody else is frowning, you can get the squinty eye.

  2. Do you ever wonder if anybody else reads any of these comments, Ross? This site is like a Lucy and Ross duet. She writes, he comments, it's a winning team!

  3. There are probably some lurkers, shy creatures, with large, luminous eyes.
