More things to be happy about (12)

The smell of newly mimeographed test papers;  where writers and artists gather;  falling asleep on the couch;  being motioned to come and sit by someone;  Nat King Cole;  getting something fixed;  seeing your breath exhaled as a frosty puff;  Fridays;  balance beams;  sending someone an article from the paper, that you know will be of special interest;  Ripley’s believe it or not;  getting a free can of coke from a vending machine that still has someone else’s money in it;  super morning showers;  the part of the envelope that tells you where to put the stamp (as if you couldn’t figure it out);  knife-sharpened pencils;  biting into a croissant;  air conditioning;  organising your wardrobe;  compulsive crossword puzzle doers; paint rollers.

Falling asleep on the sofa, and air conditioning...most definitely! :)

Sunshine, swimming, blue skies, waking up with the sun on my face and seeing the green leaves and blue skies outside, purring kittens, ocean breezes, margaritas, techno, disco, and classic rock! :)

Hmm, normally I nod along happily to your lists but falling asleep on the couch is not, to me, particularly pleasurable. Especially if it involves upending a bottle of beer over onself, as it did for me this weekend!

Oh yes biting into a croissant. The airport in Geneva has the best ones ever. They put them out on the table so you can't resist!

Emma, you have to imagine the kind of 'falling asleep on the sofa' where you're too lazy to get into bed for a nap, but it's okay because someone lovely pulls a blanket over you and strokes your hair (but not in a creepy way).

Krystal, it never really happens to me either... that's why it feels so good!
