Getting into a freshly laundered bed

The moment a plane picks up speed on the runway (this will always feel like a miracle to me)

When my brothers ask me for advie

E-minor chords (sad, but not D-minor, the saddest of all chords)

A really BAD musical number in church

The feeling of trying not to laugh because it’s contraband

Pay day

Junk jewellery

Getting flowers (it makes me feel like a grown-up)

When my dad texts me and uses emojis in the wrong way

When the sky is dark dark grey but the sun shines on green leaves- that contrast always stops me in my tracks

When my nephew points at things

Real Housewives reunion shows (for educational purposes)


Standing ovations

Wet bathroom floors

Rembrandt eyebrows

Men wearing chains


Pets with human names

Seeing old grandpa men by themselves

Pigeon toe-ing

When Americans think it’s “Wimpleton” instead of Wimbledon

When people say “heighth” instead of height

Stale cigarette smell


Applause on audio tracks

People who think they are too good for McDonalds

When people write Xtreme instead of extreme

Country music that’s twangy/about drinking, divorce, wife beating, revenge

The use of the word “ironic” when it’s not actually ironic.


  1. Loved this!
