I Enjoy Silly Things (life is good)

Posted on

It’s true. For example, today I pondered the loveliness of pieces of celery that have been cooked in soup. I love celery that’s been cooked in soup.

Also, I like the letters Q, X, Y, and V, and I love to write capital “L”s in cursive.

I love the feeling that I get when I brush my teeth after not having done so for a fair bit of time.

I enjoy showers, especially hot showers.

I find old film cameras particularly engaging.

I like drinking coffee laden with voluminous amounts of sugar and cream. Brownie_Film

I like singing, (though others may not enjoy the resulting sound).

Though the longevity of the resulting order is seldom great, I like to organize things.

I like most animals, though I hold goats in disdain.

I love sitting outside in the dark, listening to the world go about its business.

I love traveling and seeing things new to my eyes.

I like writing.

I guess I like silly things.

I don’t, however, like goodbyes. So, see you next time!

    Love your post, it’s true, the best things in life are free, and maybe silly.

      Except for Pop Tarts; unfortunately, we have to pay for Pop Tarts. 😀

    Nowt wrong with enjoying life’s little pleasures. Personally I still love riding in lifts, opening up a new notepad and fishfinger sandwiches.

      What exactly is a fishfinger sandwich?

    These things hardly seem silly to me. Silly is not liking brownies… (Okay, I’ll stop.. haha). Good post and cute dog! 🙂

        Cake is meh, brownies are delicious. Perhaps we should just agree to disagree.

    Great list, Chris. Life is full of small and simple pleasures, occurring each moment, which are not at all silly but marvelously joyful and profound.

      Just wondering, NP, do you talk so prosaically in person?
