We were happy and still are

Before I had somewhere to be
Back when we had all night
And we were happy

Miss Taylor Swift should know a thing about what is happy and what is not. Listening to her with that happiness song made me have a throwback moment to some happy moments of my childhood. And to a recent conversation where an acquaintance was telling her friend she should not give her son a packed lunch to take to school because his mates would think he was poor. And would bully him, so give him pocket change instead. Our growing up years were normal and fun-filled with what we saw as common bad bits, to us, maybe because we were not exposed to anti-poverty activism, or shaming under the guise of rescue (like a lot of the help poor Africans ads that are around). Maybe because we did not not have rich neighbours. Anyway, I needed to go back in time and hear Monty Python again to affirm how we were happy growing up, because we were (maybe blindly and therefore blissfully) poor. A definite lol clip.
