Whether or not Happy really enjoys his question and answer secessions with his Grandpa and Auntie I cannot always say. What I do know is that as I watched this segment Happy reminded me a bit of myself. Proud and excited when he got the answer right he was full of smiles, but then after getting one answer wrong he became shy and hesitant to answer the next question lest he get the answer wrong.

That caution resonated well with me. Besides having a healthy dose of shyness, I was the queen of second guessing myself. There were times that in spite of my shyness, I longed to blurt out the answer, but it was checked by the uncertainty created by second guessing myself.

Who knew that a little pup could share so many of the uncertainties that we humans have?
