…so says a song by The Weepies. But I think it’s a LIE.

Surely you’ve had someone steal your happiness. Usually for me it’s when I’m really excited about something, maybe something small, but I’m excited nonetheless — and then someone I admire makes a sarcastic comment about it.

…in that case, my happiness is stolen. I feel silly.

Or, like Mel and I were just talking about, when you’re the only one wearing a wintry OR springy outfit in the entire church. Joy-stealing moment, for sure.

Or when you excitedly accept a compliment that was actually meant for someone else. Happiness stealer.

Or perhaps when you finally look in the mirror and realize there’s a piece of lettuce in your teeth…and you’ve JUST been talking to the boy you like.

You guys have any others?
