What is the mood of "A Service of Love?"

The mood set in this story is very light and playful.

You would think that the mood might be a bit darker given the subject matter.  You have these two people who are essentially getting ripped off as they pursue their dreams.  The music teacher and the art teacher are not really giving Joe and Delia much in return for their money.

Even so, the tone is fun -- the two of them are happy and the way the author writes is jaunty and amusing.  So it makes it seem like a happy story all the way through.
