What made you happy today?

In the spirit of positivity, I thought to make a thread just like the irritant thread, except stuff that makes you happy.



One thing yesterday was my awesome korean dinner my fiancée made for me to celebrate Korean thanksgiving last night.

and also I'm spending the day taking my grandfather to various appointments, he's the man.


Hopefully this will catch on like the irritant thread, if it doesn't at least I'll have a new thing to post about in there.

    Someone else had the same thought a few years ago, can't find the thread. So don't hold out hope people like to complain more than talk about what's good.

    Complaining usually does create better conversation.

    Re: What makes you happy?

    My chicken fried
    Cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fits just right
    The radio on
    The sunrise
    The love in my woman's eyes
    The touch of a precious child
    A mother's love

    Re: What makes you happy?

    But for real, the thing that makes me happiest is sitting on the couch in my boxers on a Saturday morning, drinking coffee, my dog laying in my lap, my fiancee sitting next to me. That's the thing I look forward to the most during the week.

    That's a good one and sounds a lot like most of my Saturday mornings, except for the coffee

    So, I did a search, but came up with nothing (if the thread exists, please link).

    I like that the irritation thread is a great place to vent about the little, or big, things that bug us, but what about the little things that make us really happy?

    I know we have a thread on what irritates us, and its been quite a success and extremely relatable.

    However, I thought being happy is a good thing, so what makes you happy?

    Re: What makes you happy?

    Kwik trip had 6 donuts for a dollar. That made me happy. It also had dollar breakfast sandwiches. That also made me happy. Ended up spending the same amount of money I thought i was going to when I walked in and came away with an armful of food instead of just one banana and one breakfast sandwich.

    this is mine as well. especially now with football, being up at 9 on saturday, getting a small breakfast sandwich and coffee, and getting some reading in knowing I have no serious plans for a bit is the best

    Saturday mornings on the couch with college football are the best.

    Thought you were talking about QuikTrip but I see there's actually another convenience store named Kwik Trip.

    QT is the shit though. They've remodeled most of their stores with their "Kitchens" where a real person makes food to order. Their pizza, sandwiches, ice cream things and coffee type drinks are all good, and I still love their roller grill food At work we go there several times a week and I almost never buy gas from them.

    This is a GREAT one. I've had this fascination with rivers/streams/brooks since I was a kid. Very relaxing and very cool to come across one randomly while hiking or driving.

    It's the best. I think I posted this in the Sports Wagering thread last year, but looking over all the lines for the 50+ games that are being played that day while enjoying some food/coffee is a top 5 favorite thing of mine, no joke.
