Happiness is made of this....

I am standing a little taller today; perhaps my head is even a little larger. (I don’t know for sure because I have a perm and it has already made my noggin look 23% bigger.

The reason for my potentially increased hat size is the awesome compliment I received via text. A dear reader (who shall remain anonymous) commented re: my last blog entry…excuse me whilst I scroll down on my cell phone; ah yes, here it is:

“That post made me cry and almost pee my pants!”

Now—and this probably goes without saying, my golden goal as a writer, my trophy at the end of the tunnel, my Emmy/Tony/Oscar is simply this: (And I would like to express it in the form of a haiku)

For a reader like you

To experience

An involuntary bodily reaction

In response

To words

That I have written.

This reaction could be a number of things (haiku alert);

a cough of delight

a belch of enchantment

a little toot of happiness

a sneeze of satisfaction

a few moist tears of pleasure

or yes…

even the above mentioned condition.

Can you blame me for being on top of the world?

I'm alwasy under the assumption that any little toot brings happiness!
