The boy who didn't want to be sad
There once was a boy who didn't want to be sad. He tries to eliminate sources of sadness: toys (they can get broken), pets (they can't live forever), friends (what if they don't call?), even his family (sometimes they get mad at him). Ultimately, he realizes that all sources of sadness are also sources of happiness, and reclaims them all.
