His head was down. Eyelids were down. Arms were down. Shoulders were way down. Frown was down the farthest it had ever been. The he came up. Eyebrows were up. Ears were up. Chin was up. Pants were up. Hair was up the highest it had ever been! Standing side by side, the differences were glaringly obvious. He said, "How did you get all the up?" He answered, "How did you get all the down?" He replied, "Thinking about something bad." Then he said, "Well, It's time we think about something good." They thought about good and happy and fun and smiley and a tremendous thing happened. Their arms rose and rose until they were hoisted in the air jubilantly, hands to the sky."I feel up" he said. "Good" he said.
