I defy you to find anything wrong with any of these things. But let’s try.
Kittens and ducklings.
But not together kittens and ducklings together, that’s just a calamity. Kittens! Kittens are cute and do silly things. Oh but what if you’re allergic? Then they don’t make you happy. Then you have ducklings! Who could hate ducklings? There is nothing wrong with ducklings. Unless you’re in your car and for whatever reason there’s a long line of ducklings crossing the street in front of you and you’re late for your appointment at BIG TIME BUSINESS, INC. in which case, you probably just want to run them over. Okay, so what about…
Pizza parties! Food! Free food! …Unless you’re one of the kids who is allergic to gluten, or is vegan. There’s a vegan pizza place across the street from me, and if they gave out free pizza I would be really happy because it’s delicious, so maybe we can all agree that free delicious pizza that meets your dietary restrictions and needs is non upsetting and awesome? Does anyone have a problem with this? No? Here’s another great one…
Waking up before your alarm and realizing you have more time to sleep in.
Zoinks! I’m going to be late for my job at BIG TIME BUSINESS, INC. I hope the roads are clear of ducklings today. Let me just get out of bed and — oh my sainted Aunt! I have an entire hour before I need to get up! This is most wonderful! I shall go back to sleep! But what if I can’t? Then I just have this entire hour of nothing. Of dreading having to wake up. Now I’m just ticking down the time before I have to wake up even though I’m already awake. Maybe I should be productive and work out instead? This is a nightmare. Boy, I should could use…
A genuine compliment.
When someone isn’t hitting on you or trying to make you feel weird, if they’re just saying something kind without any ulterior motives like, “That shirt is a great color on you” or “I wish I had your hair!” that’s wonderful, isn’t it? What is possibly bad about that? Let me know.
A puppy doing anything.
People like puppies, right? Because everything they do is precious and wonderful. It’s fun to just watch them walk around and experience their first few days of life! Yes, I don’t think think there’s anything to hate here aaaaaand it just crapped on the rug. Okay, moving on.
A great hair day.
Pretend that you don’t care, but if you’re having a day where you’re loving how your hair falls around your face and feels, and it looks so shiny and healthy as though it’s been washed with the crushed remains of a fairy godmother, you feel a great little boost for the day. I would really like to know who is upset by a great hair day. I guess the only upsetting thing about a great hair day is when you have a bad hair day, because then you can’t help but compare the two. But we mustn’t think like that!
Getting a great deal.
It’s a little happy happy joy joy in life when you find something for a much cheaper price than you were expecting, or when you get something free for doing something or maybe even nothing. Personally, I don’t like doing things, ever. So when I don’t do anything, getting anything is a huge plus. Because something is better than nothing and anything is better than nothing, even something. Although…I did use to work in retail and customers can be diabolical when there’s a sale or some sort of freebie going on. It’s times like those that you want to start crying and barricade the doors so that no one come in, and God forbid, buy things.
When someone does you a favor.
Because sometimes, life is like an angry gym teacher screaming at you to climb a rope, and you can’t, it’s too hard. So when someone steps in and helps you out, without expecting anything in return, it’s a wonderful feeling. If they do it expecting something in return, then check their face carefully for signs of Disneyvillianitis (hint: are their brows incredibly arched? Do they have a cleft in their chin?). However…if you have a case of anhedonia (the inability to enjoy basically anything) then you’ll be overcome with guilt and hate that person for making your life easier. You’ll hate them the way my brother hates The Muppets. You don’t know my brother but he really, really hates The Muppets. They scare him. Especially the two old men in the balcony. Don’t tell him I told you this. So what else is there that doesn’t upset anyone?
Looking at things.
Boy looking at things sure is fun! You can look at one thing over there, and then another thing over there. It’s great to look at thing and everyone loves it…oh…unless you’re blind…then maybe not…damn. We were so close on that one.
Actually never mind, I’m visiting my mom and had the audacity to wake up as late as 9:45 AM and she screamed at me. So not everyone loves sleeping.
In conclusion: everything sucks and we’re all going to die.
