“How come you’re always happy?”

Posted on
A friend once asked, “How come you’re always happy? You’re always fascinated by everything, even things that don’t really matter.” 

She said that right after I had taken out my eggs from the microwave. It was my first time poaching eggs in the microwave, and I couldn’t help but be amused at how well it turned out.

“Well…” as I answered her through mouthfuls of food, “it’s because I’m always learning.”

So Tiffany, when are you going to get married?
