Happy Things

  • When I go to the post office and buy postage that the postmaster has to put on and she puts it on straight so the edge of the stamp is even with the edge of the envelope. I hate it when they just slap it on the envelope all willy-nilly.
  • Getting into my clean car.
  • A new pad of paper. It's exciting for me to get a new scratch pad at work. All of that pristine paper just begging to be written on.
  • Coke in a can.
  • A new tube of toothpaste. I really like being the first person to use it.
  • New socks.
  • Finding a parking spot next to a curb. That way, there is only one side of my car that is unprotected and that could be smacked by someone carelessly opening their door.
  • Sniffing the dogs' heads and feet after they've dried out after a bath.
  • Finding an empty check-out line at the grocery store.

And for you?

I'm in the wrong area of the country to say it, but: Pepsi in a bottle.

When Pepper sits up and begs just for attention (instead of for food or to go outside).

My new haircut!

Chickie said...

Lady of the Hills - You are too kind! :)

Rich Championable - I think so. I usually miss it entirely.

JaclynRaye - How could anyone not like Coke in a can? Good stuff.

Liar Liar - Your new haircut does kick ass!

i thought whacking a penguin was some sort of sexual euphamism

clean feet

patti_cake said...

Crooked stamps wig me out and reading about the crazy things you do and say makes me verily happy!

Whacking the penguin made me forget about choking the chicken ;)

My XM radio makes me all fuzzy and happy.

Whacking the penguin, a new Chickie post, Carmen, a good internet connection, the first Gin of the day, the last Gin of the day, calling in to work to ask if there is anything for me to do and them saying not right now, and hot days.

Joey Polanski said...

Dyou evr sniff th dogs ASSs?

Cause, like, DOGs certainly think thats all th rage!

Chickie said...

Bo Snagley - Clean feet is a good one. Socks sticking to the floor is not cool.

Patti_Cake - Glad I'm not the only one with a thing for straight stamps! It makes me happy to make you happy :)

Slick - Penguin whacking is the cure for chicken choking? I may be on to something here.

Mike - Hot days? Why don't you do me a favor and come down here and get all of our hot days? Summertime makes me want to cry.

I'm with you on the good internet connection!

Joey Polanski - Ack, NO. I might get my nose sticky. And that would not make me happy.

I'm glad you provided a link to "whacking the penguin" to clarify things because you'd be surprised to know what i was thinking............

Chickie said...

Regal - And to think that I was afraid that people would think I was advocating animal abuse! :)

Scott English said...

I have to say that I am with you on the new pad of paper thing. So much potential ready to unfold!

Also, the crunch of stones and pebbles and sand under my feet.

The sound of rain pattering on the roof.

The feel of a nice breeze brushing over me when I am laying in my hammock reading a good book and drinking a beer.
