What tends to really make our day is when a delightful thing unexpectedly happens to us. I never expect to win the Powerball, I just hope that I do.

If you've ever wondered if a therapist can get suddenly violent, just trust me when I say, "OW. Yes!"

So what kind of things absolutely make our day?

"But what about hearing my baby's first words, Choad?" Look, I didn't make this list, and the people who answered the question didn't bother to mention their baby's first words until #8 on the list.

So according to the people surveyed, they'd rather have a stranger pay them a compliment or let them budge in line for their morning coffee than hear their baby's first words. Ah, the human race.

  • "Call of a Loon" ~Craig
