The Happiest Person

Dear sir,

I am the happiest person in the world.  Please don’t tear up this letter before you hear why I dare to make such an audacious claim.

What is happiness?  Is it simply the absence of sadness, or is it more?  Is it a feeling?  Is it state of mind?  Perhaps a higher consciousness? Perhaps it is all of these, or none, and simply defies explanation.

I don’t know which of these it is, but in 5 seconds this letter will blow up, killing you, and the billions of other people reading similar letters, and I will be the last remaining person on the world.

And this makes me very happy indeed.

Kind regards,
