When's the last time you made someone else smile for real?
What were you doing?

Last night. And it's a very dorky reason. Pokemon Go came out last night and I got really excited about it. To top it all off my boyfriend (who isn't as into Pokemon) downloaded it and my younger sister and I walked around our neighborhood last night to see what we could find. So overall it was a good night full of smiles.1

Around a month ago, when I was allowed to play with my 18 month old niece for a brief period of time (her mum, my sister, went off to a party and left her and my 5yr old nephew with us so we could babysit for free into the small hours). That was the very last time I genuinely smiled for real- since then, it's gone back to normal, where I'm unable to find anything happy enough to crack a genuine smile about. My life is not happy; neither is the life of anyone else around me. Children are the only ones who can genuinely make me smile nowadays, because they still possess the naive optimism which the real world drains and saps from everyone else, earlier and earlier. Other people could make me smile, if they were inclined to do so- but I'm not worth it, so they don't bother trying. And I personally don't have anything to smile about, and I'm not a clown, so I don't.2
