Things that make me smile

Here is a list of some of the things that make me smile...

Old people
Aren't they just so adorable? The way that they strain to hear what you're saying, the way they make self-defacing comments at checkouts, and the way old people often take the stairs when everyone else takes the lift.

Ducks which stand under a bridge when it rains
When I walk to and from work every day, I cross over the puente de Malecon (which happens to wobble, and I've also noticed that if there are lots of people on the bridge, they start walking in time to the wobbles and thus make it worse). Generally there are lots of ducks in this part of the river because there's a little island in the middle. Most of the time, thus far anyway, it's sunny here in Murcia, but when it rains, all the ducks stand in line under the bridge following its curve across the river. And I just think that's sweet.

People who wear inappropriate clothing to church
It just makes me smile.

My family
Who always make me laugh because all of them are mad in their own way.

What makes you smile?

  1. My grandmother has dementia,she can barely complete a thought let alone follow along in dialogue. I was speaking with my uncle in front of her and I made a rather dirty joke and she burst into laughter... It was almost the happiest moment in my life.

    People do read yur blog, they may not respond because they have no clue who you are or maybe think what they have to say is of any interest to anyone.

    I came across your blog in search of work in Paris as a TEFL teacher. This is where Google sent me! haha anyway, its a pleasure to meet you. Take care and good luck with your new stay!
