As I sat down yesterday after church to read the newspaper I thought about moments or times that I really enjoy. I'm talking about times that don't involved anyone else basically.
Three times I really look forward to and enjoy:
1. Reading the newspaper: Ironically enough I don't really read the newspaper. I just enjoy that initial sit down of preparing to "look" at today's headlines. My peeve is having to have the whole newspaper without any sections missing. I also don't like to read a newspaper that's been looked at already. My favorite paper is The USA Today. They have more articles that are contained to one page. I don't have the willpower to go looking for the rest of the story. All said, I look at 95% and read 5%.
2. Sunday 12 noon NFL kickoff: It really doesn't matter who is playing. I really like being in a sports bar where I can see all 8 games at once. Usually I lose interest within the first hour, but like the initial kickoff incase a marquee game is really good. When it comes to watching my favorite team it doesn't matter if I watch it, home or away. The bummer thing this past year was that I didn't get out of church until 12:15. I really wish my adult class was during the 8:30 timeslot so I could easily get the best seat at the sportsbar, which there really isn't one within 10 miles.
3. Movies: Any movie is a good movie as long as buttered popcorn is served. I think I love the whole experience. Getting there early. Getting popcorn and drink. Picking an aisle seat for convenient exiting. The previews and then the movie. If I have one moral weakness it is going to the movies just to be going. I fail to research the rating or the content. I usually go based on the star or the advertised hype. I have walked out on movies before: Bad Santa, Ice Harvest, and Lady Killers due to foul language or vulgarity.
I am sure there are other special moments, but these are ones I can experience alone.
What moments give you that "AHhhhh" feeling?
