Little green thing

Strawbaby's in the Nexus! She's sitting on the arm of a couch, happily making a nest out of Christmas tree tinsel as random snatches of songs appear on the holoscreen behind her head.
Then the question appears!
WHAT DOES 'SAD' MEAN? she asks without looking up.
You are feeling: artistic
"Opposite of happy?" Hello, strange little doll! :o
Little blue eyes look up at her as busy little hands pause on the tinsel. I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
She blinks, grinning. Strange, but cute green doll. "What don't you understand?"
OPPOSITE OF HAPPY? Head tilty.
"Well. " She pauses, thinking. "Might have been a bad description... have you ever cried?"
"Ever felt like you were going to?"
Elecman quirks an eyebrow at the AI. He had never seen one so tiny
before. He browses through a few mental memory banks to find a dictionary definition.
1. affected by unhappiness or grief
2. expressive of or characterized by sorrow
3. causing sorrow
4. (of color) somber, dark, or dull"
The slightly automated tone to his voice fades when he decides these answers aren't really satisfactory and he decides to give an answer of his own. "It's when you feel like shit but would rather mope about it than, say, hit something."
She cocks her head and considers the data, then looks up. HOW DOES ONE FEEL LIKE EXCREMENT?
He rolls his eyes. This would be more effort than he'd bargained for.
"That's just a figure of speech. It means you feel really, really bad, m'kay?"
I UNDERSTAND. She dances a little, then pauses to think about it. NO... YES, I DO.
He crosses his arms and leans back a little, slightly amused.
NO, BUT DATA THAT I COLLECT LATER WILL CAST LIGHT ON IT, NO DOUBT. Hands on her hips as she peers up at him curiously.
"Heh, thought so." He shrugs. "That is the only way to go about it, though. Keep amassing information until you have some understanding of what's going on."
He peers back, one eyebrow raised as if to ask 'yes?' in response to the curiousity.
She nods as she plunks down in her nest again, then tilts her head at him. EVERYTHING IS INTERESTING.
