The Ones Who Are Happy
You watch television programs that showcase humans who have been polished to what you view as physical perfection. The commercials between the programs advertise food and drink that will make you fat and unhealthy and physically imperfect. But sometimes the polished humans on television endorse that food and drink, which confuses you. So many others around you want to look as those on television do. And so do you. But there are so many diets, so many routines, and so few answers. You try one, you try many, or you try all. And perhaps you find a method that works. Perhaps you become pleased with the results. And others around you – those who’ve also achieved a measure of success – feel as happy with themselves as you do with who you are. But then there’s more. The clothes and the attitude and the talk and the walk and the way to present yourself to the others who are as happy as you are. And you spend so much time trying to figure out what best defines you as a uniquely styled person of substance. Maybe you succeed. Along with a few of the others who are also happy. And maybe then you feel as perfectly polished as the humans you see on television between commercials for bacon cheeseburger toaster sandwiches. Maybe not. But that’s alright, because your doctor is willing to prescribe pills for that – for any unhappiness you might encounter along the way. Then, with the pills, you can be like the others again. The ones who are happy.
