    What about the additional 5.7 hours? I’m terrible at math but you’re only wishing me 8,760 hours of happiness…..when I think you’re missing an additional 5.7 hours, more if it’s a leap year…is it a leap year?

      Well, you know. A little unhappiness must fall into every life, right? If we can limit it to 5.7 hours, I think we can all be proud of ourselves.
