I’m a happy go lucky kinda guy. Eveything around me makes me happy. Sometimes its weird that I dont know why. Am I alone in thinking that people unconsciously mooch happiness off others? I see this all the time at weddings. Not that I love going to weddings. But I’m inexplicably happier when I’m there. Everyone’s so happy. And genuinely so. Unless you’re the ex. In which case you have no reason to be there in the first place.
Come to think of it, people are genetically inclined to feel the way others feel around them. Not that I can prove it. Cause I don’t know the first thing about genetics you see. But pull one guy out of a group and ask why they do what they do, and you’ll probably be bombarded with “Umms” and “Aahhs” and “Uhhhs”.
No “Oohs” tho.
So what’s the idea behind your rock song? Is there a message to the world?
Uhhh.. Hey, have you seen my new guitar?
However, in a group of children, you usually get a lot of Oohs.
Why are you in a musical?
Ooh! Cause I love to sing! And dance! And Ooh! I get to be on stage…
So what does that mean? Well I don’t know really. But it does make you think. Growing up is supposed to make us smarter. And we end up not knowing what we want. We do what we do, based on where we were and with whom, at that pivotal point in time when it was decided that, that’s what we’re going to do. So technically it dumbs us down. It removes our freedom of thought while filling us with delusions of control.
Feels just like it did when my maths teacher introduced me to “X”. Who turned out to be a lot of work to end up at nothing.
I don’t know if that was philosophical or technical. Anyways back to topic – Mooching happiness.
Is that ok? I mean is it ok if you want to look pretty for a cousin’s wedding? What if you end up looking prettier than her? Will that make you happy? Or sad? Or confused?
I for one think we should all look our absolute worst unless it’s our own wedding. That way the bride would look beautiful. As she rightly deserves. And that should make you happy.
