Specific Conditions

I mean, what is “happy”? How are you defining it? Is it the feeling I get from drinking apple juice, playing tag, or nap time? I’m sure by some definition I am happy, but even then, is anyone really so aware of their own feelings as to know it? And then, what if clapping makes me unhappy, teacher? What paradoxical hell will I be stuck in then?! I’ll stick with playing with the blocks, thank you.

    I remember feeling this way sometimes growing up but not sure how to put it into words.

    Very cool. They Might Be Giants has a great take on it, simply called “Clap Your Hands”

    … no happiness or self inspection required.
    And for me in general, one of my favorite CDs to play for the kids was their “No!” CD. Definitely worth checking out.
