Are you lucky?

I used to ask this question to my children every now and then, never when they visibly were unhappy.

After hearing Are you lucky?, I started asking it to other people as well, collecting (anonymous) answers to this question.

  • “Kas sa oled õnnelik?” – “Mis mõttes?” – “Noh üldselt” – (mõtleb veidi) “Jah”.

  • “Kas sa oled õnnelik?” – “Eesti keeles on ‘õnnelik’ pigem hetkeline eufooria kui üldine seisund” – “See on nii ka inglise ja prantsuse keeles. Sa pöördud teemast eemale.” – “Ma ei vasta sellele küsimusele. Ma lähen kaitseasendisse, kui sa niimodi küsid.”

  • “Bist du glücklich?” – “Kann ich nicht sagen. Eher nicht.”
