When I hear my sister and brother-in-law talk about their new boy Connor, I believe that they are experiencing a type of happiness I've yet to feel in my life.

I've had other friends who've had kids and talked about the joy of being a new parent, but because I've known my sister her whole life and because she's always been so emotionally open in a way that's quite different from me, her joy is particularly pure and potent.

I'm high off of secondhand bliss.
