Bongo players that play on or near the boardwalk, and wanting to dance to the beat.
Listening to a man recite original poetry to the beat of the bongo’s.

Coming home to a clean house.
Having the neighbors children offering to help unload my truck when I pull into the driveway.
The smell of freshly mowed lawn.
My dog Rascal, happily waiting for me to come in my front door.
Looking at the mail realizing that there is not a bill to be found in the stack.
Checking the answering machine and being told by a wrong number that my voice sounds sexy.
