Monk with a tail

“Can you keep yourself happy 24/7?” asked my friend.
“No. Nor could my dad, or his dad or my/your predecessors,” I replied.
“Sorry to say, you sound hypocritical. Remove Say Cheese 24/7 from your blog header,” he said.
“It is like this. The universal spirit or the Atman as we say in the East has happiness as its base. It shines in everyone’s hearts 24/7. But just like dark clouds block the effulgence of the sun, desires and ignorance cloud our shining spirit,” I replied.
“Oh you think you are a monk?” he mocked.
“My dear friend Frenny Maneckshaw used to call me that,” I replied. “Only she added two letters “ey.”
