THE CONTENT FAMILY


THE CONTENT FAMILY

Once upon a time, long, long ago in a far away land; in the land where Miss Right lived, there came a young man of lowly estate.  This man, though lowly, was devout and humble.  He had wondered to and fro throughout the world seeking the elusive happiness that others had told him existed.  In the land of Never Happy, all he saw was down cast faces and down trodden people so he plodded along until he came to Almost Happy, a small town off the beaten path where to his disappointment, the town folks were almost happy.  Disturbed by their almost happy way of life, he moved on until he found himself in a little city of clean streets and tiny neat cottages.  The name of this little town was Approaching Happy.  There was a somewhat jovial attitude among the people, but still not what the young man's idea of happy should be.  After many days distance from Approaching Happy, the young man ended up in Happy.  Deciding to settle down there and be happy in Happy, the young man basked in Happy until he heard of a not too distant town called Extremely Happy.  His travels soon led him there and he met Miss Right - the epitome of happy! So, the arrow of love pierced his heart and he longed to make Miss Right extremely happy by making her Mrs. Content.  You see, this young man of lowly estate was named Iam Content.  He had always wanted to live up to his name.  Hence, he struck out on a journey to change his lowly estate to a position matching his name.  He is now the Mayor of Extremely Happy and Miss Right is now Mrs. Content.  The Contents have two children - a son named Always and a daughter named Completely.  And they are all content to live happily ever after in Extremely Happy.
