…getting up early and knowing you can stay in bed for a while before you have to get up? This works when you are alone (I like making tea or coffee and then letting it cool off on my nightstand while I catch a few extra winks) or with someone (some of the best conversations happen early in the morning. And, of course, there’s mornin shenanigans.) (BTW, that ^ up there is me.)
…when you get home really late, worried you won’t find any parking and there’s a parking space right in front of your house?
…when you slip into your seat in the movies just seconds before the movie starts and you don’t have to sit through a bunch of trailers you’ve already seen?
…when there’s a half day at work? It always feels like stolen time.
…when it’s a rainy chilly sorta day and your friend calls you up and suggests pasta and a bottle of red wine?
…that moment just before you start to eat when you know it’s going to be awesome?
…dessert? Also appetizers. I think that’s why I like Chinese food and sushi. It’s all about surprising your mouth with little tastes and sensations of food.
…pizza eaten cold for breakfast the next day? Actually, I love leftovers, any leftovers, cold for breakfast the next day. Although, pizza and chinese food top the list.
…when somebody gives you a choice between two things you love equally. This is what my friend Agate calls a high class problem. Like when Gutrbal asked me if I wanted Peking Duck or Lobster. Hellooo? That was a kissable event. People who can present these kind of dilemmas to you are people you should keep around. They’re pretty much golden. (note to Gutrbal: you pretty much do this all the time. Consider that a public apology.)
…driving the 10 going west really early in the morning playing “Here Comes The Sun”?
