Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.
Coming back to life as a hillbilly.
5. Bozone ( n.):

It’s like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it’s like, a serious bummer.

All talk and no action.
