  • Are you happy?
    He hesitated, turned around and gazed in the opposite direction the time of a second.
    No need. I got it. You aren't. It took you too long to re-conceal with yourself.
    I... am... 60% happy.
    Where did you leave the other 40%?
    10% would go to my childhood, 20% to my youth as a student.
    Pause. Frown. Go.
    What about the other 10%?
    Never had it, never got it, never wanted it.
    Man up is always easy when you are used to being defeated.
    Let's try this again, won't we? Are you happy? (and his finger pointed at my nose not in the funny and cute way)
    I am not.
    Too quick to be true.
    I may be just truthful and not so often true.
    How come you can stand not debating, at least whether you are happy or not?
    I never wanted to be happy, didn't make a goal out of it in the first place. So I don't take it personally. Should you have asked whether I was perfect, I would have provided a somehow hesitant answer.
    Hmmm... let me see... Are you, say, perfect?
    No, but I'm on my way of becoming. What could one have done to make you happy?
    Don't know. Not knowing...
