The Joy of Words.

Every little word fascinates me. Fills me with ideas and images that make up my mental mindscape. Why does a word fit in a certain place and not another? How come just the sound of things intrigue me? And I’m not talking about the rules we all follow according to proper grammar. It’s more a psychological thing, I’d say. When a well constructed sentence finally reaches its conclusion I feel like I’ve been on a little ride.

– “Wheeeeee!”.

A soothing cathartic feeling washes over me. The core of this feeling probably has to do with the ideas that are conveyed. I’m always craving a nourishing exchange of ideas. But what turns them into something extra scrumptious is the way in which these ideas are delivered. The yummy coating that makes the healthy thought go down smooth. Words that aren’t just used to obscure the truth. Infotain me baby!

All this makes me feel a sort of joy. The anger that I often carry around on a regular day disperses right then and there. Where does all the hate go? When someone makes me a better person I love them for it. I just hope I can repay this elegant favour in kind. Too bad most people are God damn morons. The next guy who tries to talk to me about football or some such meaningless activity is getting punched right in the penis! I do not demand intelligence or even wit of others, as I have precious little of these commodities myself at times. I just hope for an eagerness to learn and thoughtfulness in all situations.

– Cuteness, I’m quite smitten with you but I don’t dare say it yet.

5 grams of glee.

Did you know that in Sweden you’re not allowed to carry around more than 5 grams of glee at any one time? Anything more than that would be illegal. Above that amount and you’re considered a dealer of delight, a pusher of joy. No, 5 grams is the sanctioned amount. It’s not even enough to make you properly merry. But it is however enough to make you fine, without being too dandy.

Scientific studies have shown that any more than 15 grams of glee can cause you to become more than happy, a dangerous mental condition. Afflicted with which you’ll be put in a special institution. Locked away, prohibited from gladdening anyone’s day. Society can only handle a specific amount of bliss each month. More than a specified amount and it would just become obscene. Felicity frenzy would break out! Gangs of gaiety would be rampaging up the streets spreading joviality all around. Pandemonium of positivity!

I think I just gleed a little. Better clean up. Hand me my mirth-towel.
