It's funny how life's cycle works. Up, down, up, down...rinse and repeat. There's a word that I seem to have lost in my vocabulary, but recently located again. I opened up the Winkleplex dictionary and there it was: "happy." Somehow that page had fallen out a few years ago, but it looks like it's back (held together with tape and a couple staples, but it's in there).
