Happiness: Why are you crying?

Confusion: I don't know.

Happiness: Are you sad?

Confusion: Not exactly.

Happiness: Mad?

Confusion: No. Not at all.

Happiness: I know.

Confusion: You do?

Happiness: Yeah. Remember that time I rode that roller coaster with you?

Confusion: The grown-up one?

Happiness: Yeah. Remember at the end how I cried? I was so glad it was over.

Confusion: You felt relief.

Happiness: Yeah. But what's that other word you like to use?

Confusion: You mean, gratitude?

Happiness: Yeah. Gratitude. That's why you're crying.
