44. Is it Contagious?
From an upstairs bedroom came a loud “Yes!” followed by a long silence. Devin came bounding into the living room, jacket in hand.
“I’m going to Lori’s,” he said. “Love you, Dad.”
“That’s twice in ten minutes I heard someone say they loved me,” Mikey said to Repulsive and Repugnant. Repugnant scratched under his collar. Repulsive meowed and Mikey said, “I count that as a third time ‘Pulse.” He scratched the cat’s ears and smiled. Mikey didn’t know what Devin was so happy about, he only knew his good mood was contagious.
Today I will be grateful happiness can be contagious.
