Defining A Lot Happy

Something might make you a little happy and you smile. But sometimes, something makes you a lot happy like seeing a long-lost sibling.

Where have you been, Big Bro?
Where have you been, Big Bro?

First, we need to explain the definition of long-lost sibling. Typhoon hung out in the yard for about two minutes more than Roscoe, so they were separated for a whole two minutes. For the Little Prince, this was no big deal. But for Roscoe, who adores his big brother, this was like forever and forever and forever.

I missed you so much, Big Bro.
I missed you so much, Big Bro.

Now we need to define a lot happy. Sure the grammar is suspect, but the meaning is clear. Ear scratches can make you happy. Food can make you happy. But how do we explain a lot happy? We don’t. We show you a lot happy.

Big Bro, I am A LOT HAPPY to see you.
Big Bro, I am A LOT HAPPY to see you.
