14 Oh-So-Pleasant Surprises

Finding money in your pocket. Your luggage being first onto the carousel at the airport. Internet Explorer actually being good again. Check out these pleasant surprises that make life grand.

1. Showing up at the ice cream parlor on Free Cone Day …

… Which is much more classy than asking for a sample of ten different flavors, then awkwardly pretending to check your voice mail while you walk out and avoid the ice cream worker’s glare.

2. The weatherman was wrong again …

… An unexpectedly sunny day is the perfect excuse to play hooky from school. Or work. Or family outings. Or anything, really.

3. Your favorite song is on the radio when you turn your car on …

… Only exciting if your favorite song isn’t “Call Me Maybe” or “Somebody That I Used To Know”, because that’s too easy.

4. Turns out the restaurant you’re taking your date to is BYOB …

… Which means instead of watery $12 cocktails, you can spend money on important things instead, like dessert.

5. Finding a lone onion ring in your french fries …

… Because nothing is more precious than unexpected snack food.

6. Your birthday falls on a Saturday …

… Making it the “The Knight In Shining Armor” of the birthday world, in stark contrast to Tuesdays, the “Evil Wizard” of the birthday world.

7. Internet Explorer is actually good again …

… No, really: the browser you loved to hate is back. The last time IE was this fast, I used it on a 486 to read webrings about the ongoing Monica Lewinsky scandal.

8. Finding money in the pocket of a second-hand coat

Extra points if it’s more than $1, and you get a gold star if it exceeds the cost of the coat itself.

9. First off the plane + first luggage to come down on the carousel …

… Equals shortest possible time spent in the airport, a relief for anyone.

10. Your roommate did all the dishes …

Even your week-old rock-hard lasagna nightmare that had started to fuse with the sink itself.

11. The client brought donuts to the meeting …

… Which not only closed the deal, but made everyone best friends, prompted a spontaneous marriage proposal and acceptance, and helped steer global society toward a stable Middle East.

12. Your date picks up the tab …

… More than compensating for his less-than-stellar dinner conversation and tendency to chew with his mouth open.

13. You’re the only people in the movie theatre …

… Which means that not only do you not have to tell other people to be quiet, but you can talk all you want, too!

14. There’s a back-to-back marathon of your favorite sitcom on on your sick day …

… And as a result you will punctuate every sentence for the rest of the week with the “Law and Order” DUN DUN sound effect, but that is the price of entertainment.
