Five good things

Finding the joy of reading again. It's been a while.

Some idiot not looking where he was going, not indicating and driving into our car as we passed where he was parked. The good bit? Nobody was hurt and the car only suffered a ('nother) minor scratch.

Some idiot smashing the drivers side mirror as he pulled out in front of us to pass a pedestrian and then almost missed us as he swerved back in. The good bit? He didn't hit us head on and we only need to spend £12 on a replacement glass, not £50 on a new unit.

The (often fleeting) ability to find the good when circumstances conspire to make the bad shine brightest.

Four years and three days with my Poppet (7/7/07).

Please join in: what good things found you last week?


  1. Oh, we got a side mirror smashed a few weeks ago, and it was a bit more than that to replace- lucky you, but sorry for the dents and dings.

    My good things:
    A successful new intern orientation
    The fact that one of the new interns bakes
    A nice walk on the High Line (google it- it's my new favorite New York thing)
    Finding a Malaysian restaurant in our neighborhood
    Sleeping late

    Happy anniversary to you and Ray!

  2. Happy Anniversary, Barbara! Sending love. xoxo
