Earlier in the week, I'd been talking to one of my cousins; she intends to mail me sausage once again, the traditional gift of our family, and a major ingredient I make good use of. We talked about politics, and the job market, and UPS, and the other usual topics; it didn't seem odd to me.
My mother told me today that my cousin told her that I "sound happier". She "didn't think [I] was unhappy at [my] job at Microsoft, but [she] can hear such a huge difference..."
I don't know what that sounds like, but she's probably right.
