Are You Happy?

Sometimes I ask my cats this question.

Or I ask my son.

Or my son asks me.

Or my cats ask me.

"Yeah, I'm happy," I say to my cats. "Especially when I'm cuddling with you."

They roll their eyes.

"You just said that to get my attention, right?" I say. "So I will feed you?"

"Truly one of the great minds of of our times," they say, as I get their food ready.

"Alright, alright," I say. "Hope you're fucking happy now."

They meow.
