Answer for question 4430.

What's the last time that you were really happy? What were you doing? Who were you with? What made that time so special?
"Really" "Happy?" I may have to do a major essay on this. But i will spare you that here. Have i ever been "really happy?" Well, i experienced intense physical pleasure about 15 years ago and countless times in the 38 years before that. Today i am extremely glad that 108 F degrees will probably not become the mean annual temperature during my lifetime. But the possibility that that could happen during the lifetimes of my great grandchildren does not let me be happy or content, or pleased, or glad. But i am not prone to emotional highs so it is possible that i have never been "really happy" nor "really" anything else. As for the intense pleasure fifteen years ago, it was, of course, during sexual intercourse. I was with my spouse. What made it special is ... special, and private.

I wonder what they mean by "really happy"? I have a feeling they're not referring to genuineness, but to either something really intense, or to some quality of unalloyedness....

Yeah. I spent an hour with a dictionary, looking at happy, joy, pleased, content, bliss, and glad. Glad seems to be a key word coming from an ancient word (gleh-2) meanint "to shine." Hmmm?
