There are many things in life that warrant the phrase in the title of this blog post. For some, it is something as simple as fresh coffee in the morning. For others, it may be putting on a sweatshirt right when it comes out of the dryer.
I have compiled a list of a few of my favorite "Oh Man, That's the Best" situations...
1) The Obvious - waking up in the middle of the night, slightly warmer than you'd like, and then flipping over your pillow so the cool side is now on your face. immediate temperature equilibrium is restored. Ahhhhh.
2) Getting home and having cold feet after a day of walking barefoot or in sandals, and then slipping on a pair of clean, warm socks. Oh man, love this.
3) Waking up early in the morning, getting frustrated that you have to get up and go to work, and then realizing it's Saturday and give the middle finger to the world by dragging the comforter over your face and going back to sleep. (*NOTE FROM THE EDITOR - the opposite of this is unmistakably horrible, when you wake up early, hate that you have to get up, you drag yourself out of bed to do your morning routine, finally get out the door in your dress clothes, only to see your neighbor across the street reading the paper on his porch and saying "Beautiful weekend, isn't it?" - FML).
4) Going to a dive bar to hang out with friends, with the intention of playing pool and drinking average beer. Then you walk up to the bar to order a beer, and look at the taps, and see that they actually have one of your favorite beers on draft. "Umm, you can keep the Coors Light, I'll take the Stone Levitation!" (*NOTE FROM THE EDITOR - ok, so no one has Levitation on tap, but it made the story come full circle from "#7" of my last post).
5) On a cool night, starting a fire and sitting with your back to it. Once the heat starts hitting your back, you start to curl over in a forward fetal position with your head almost touching your knees cuz it's so relaxing. (Given these situations, apparently I really like being warm).
6) Being busy for a long stretch of time (days, months), and then waking up on a Saturday or Sunday and realizing "I have nothing to do, nowhere to go, no one to see." Normally I end up filling those days with random house chores, trips to Dixieline, washing my car, eating mass amounts of junk food, and re-acquainting myself with my neighborhood (or my couch). But man, those "break days" are a great change of pace.
7) Filling your plate up at a buffet, housing all of the food, sadly realizing you're still hungry, and then remembering, "Hey, it's a BUFFET!"
8) A beer in the stadium at a hot baseball day game.
