“It’s Joy.”

We’re five beer bottles in already, when she asked, “So, how about you—who’s the dominant emotion playing in you right now?” “Hmmm… You mean out of the five emotions in Inside Out—Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust?” I asked. She plastered on a satisfying smile as if knowing already my answer to her question and said, “Well, yeah… So which one is it?” The crease on my forehead soon leveled out. I returned the smile, and without a hint of hesitation I replied, “It’s Joy.” There weren’t any discussion that followed. Instead she just nodded in pure affirmation and satisfaction, looking at me with eyes that seem to articulate, “Great, just what I want to hear.”
