Why do we say we're head over heels when we're happy? Isn't that the way we normally are?
Great question. My understanding is that it come from being "happy enough to turn somersaults" Hence, we are going head over heels.

Your point that we are normally head over heals is a great one, and is noted that the original phrase was "heals over head" in the 14th century.
