Let’s be blunt.
Life…not capital “L” life where eras are born and great tidal shifts of human existence do their thing, but rather small “l” life where the ordinary, day-to-day shit goes down…is pretty boring.
Well, not always boring, but often mundane, routine, commonplace.
But once in a while something special happens. Maybe it’s not earth-shattering. In fact, it’s usually not. But that doesn’t make it any less cool. In fact, the thing is all the more cooler for being so impressive, despite the tiny size of the gesture.
Your spouse goes out for the evening and returns home with a surprise piece of pie for you.
You’re a kid waking up to go to school only to discover IT’S A SNOW DAY. Back to bed with you!
The dude in line ahead of you pays for your coffee for no apparent reason.
An extra chicken nugget in your order.
Changing a co-worker’s tire.
A stranger at the restaurant compliments you on how well-behaved your kids are.
Someone goes for coffee and brings you one without asking.
What do you think? Anything to add? They don’t have to involve food. I think I might just be hungry.
