Yesterday I treated myself to a Dairy Milk Pot of Joy. It was very pleasant, I enjoyed it, it filled a spot, I scraped the pot and licked my spoon clean, it was worth 4 out of 5 noms …….. ……. but the definition of joy is “a feeling of great pleasure and happiness”, and in that respect, my “pot of joy” did not deliver.
I felt satisfied, but delight, joyfulness, jubilation, triumph, exultation, rejoicing, happiness, gladness, glee, exhilaration, ebullience, exuberance, elation, euphoria, bliss, ecstasy, transports of delight, rapture, radiance ………. perhaps not!!! For me, a “Nice Pot of Niceness” might be a more apt title ….
