Thanks again for reading and, as always, for the thoughtful comments! It's true that as much as I like to think I'm different or weird, there's plenty of ways I'm just like everybody else. This is definitely one of them.
And you're right that this is the same Dan Gilbert who wrote Stumbling On Happiness -- nice catch! I haven't read the book either, yet, but I feel like it's probably time to check it out.
Hope you're having a great week!
