This this this this this:
“Joy is not too strong a term for the emotion that overthrew the prevailing grumpiness. Those marshy messengers of spring transformed the simple statement that had been this run into a compound sentence. But the cool thing was, the sentence wasn’t “This sucks, but it’s glorious.” Nope. The sentence was “This sucks, and it’s glorious.” It’s a crucial distinction because it emphasizes that the two feelings are bound together. That it’s not glorious in spite of; it’s glorious along with. That this particular thing only happens when you combine the two in this way.”
When it sucks. And it’s glorious.
