A happy homonym

Originally – we’re talking many long years ago – I fundamentally misunderstood the expression “natural high.”  I thought it meant when someone greets you in a way that is not forced, obligatory, or otherwise constrained, but in a way that expresses that he is really pleased to meet or to see you: a natural hi.  Well, so I was a teenager then, all right.
