Bliss List – Items 5, 6, and 7

Continuing on with the Bliss List, here are some more items . . .

5. Store-bought bagged ice.  It always makes me feel pampered.

6. Being smiled at by a baby or child.  Gets me every time.

A year or so ago, I was at work, having a bad day and in a really bad mood.  A customer came in with her little boy, who was about a year old, I think.  They were sitting in my boss’ office, which is right next to my little alcove, separated by a large window.  The little boy was looking through the window at me, and I knew if I looked up at him I would smile, and I was too mad (dammit) about whatever was wrong, and I didn’t want to smile, so I pretended not to know he was looking at me and I kept working.  He evidently just knew I needed to look at him, and he smacked the window.  Before I had time to think, I glanced up, and his face bloomed into a huge grin.  Of course, mine did the same, and then came the rush of feel-good brain chemicals, and I was toast.
