Bubbly: (adj) used to describe a person who is full of cheerful high spirits.
It’s tricky business.
I know there are people who think there’s a master plan of evil to destroy the world, and sometimes what we see certainly seems to confirm that theory.
But we are all too intent on coming across cool. Because of that, we’re never hot nor cold. We’re so afraid of being light-hearted and bubbly that we accidentally cuddle up to darkness.
It amazes me what younger audiences consider to be corny.
- They don’t like silly humor.
- They don’t like sentimentality.
- They don’t like to hear too much praise given to an idea.
- They don’t wish to give tribute where it is due.
- They believe in the power of the unsaid–the silence that is supposed to project appreciation, but actually lacks volume and intent.
Can bubbly be obnoxious? I suppose.
But the truly dangerous profile is the stoicism which considers appreciation to be overwrought and gratitude assumed.
