Default "Tell me something that will make me happy and sad at the same time"

I have been on the board of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley for about 4 years now. For most of that time I have been pushing for some sort of statistic that we can use in fundraising that demonstrates that kids who go to the clubs fare better than their peers.

We had a board meeting yesterday. The Executive Director gave us the following information from the Knox County Schools.

Pre-Covid, 20% of economically disadvantaged kids were proficient at their grade level.

Currently, that is 12%.

Club kids are at 29%.

We're having good effects but damn.

Maybe club kids have something better to do than get in trouble or vegetate in front of a TV or phone screen when not in school and those activities are incentives to do better?

You meet a beautiful 28 year old woman in a bar, the most beautiful woman you've ever seen, and you both hit it off due to immediate chemistry.

A month later, 23andMe links her to you as your illegitimate child from a past fling.

One time, I was dating this hot chick for about a year, when she said "You know, you have one of the biggest dicks of all the guys in your fraternity."

Fail. Instructions were "happy and sad", not "sad then happy".
