Happy Dollars

Each time my Rotary Club meets, there is always a time for "Happy Dollars."  A member who feels like donating announces how much he wants to give and what makes him happy enough to do so.
During one meeting.  I arrived late and  just as I was looking for a seat, the club president called out: "Do you have happy  $$$,  Ariel"?

Caught unaware, I frantically searched through my purse. Finally I waved my $$$ and blurted out the first thing that came to my mind: I'm happy because I'm in love. 

 "Again"? The chorus was unbelievable. 

 Smiling, I said in a strong voice: Why not? Do we count the number of times we breathe?
