Life is difficult enough, but when just the right thing happens at the right time, it can be great.
That genuinely satisfying feeling is something difficult to put your finger on, but we all know it.
Here's our pick of seven very satisfying things in everyday life.
7. WHEN A PEDESTRIAN LIGHT GOES JUST AS YOU WALK TO IT
It's like, "I'm too busy, I can't stop now" and BOOM! The little man turns green and you stride confidently out in front of cars. That's right, fools. You stop for ME.
6. THE FIRST FIZZ OF A CAN OF COKE / RED BULL / FANTA / FIZZY DRINK
There's got to be some kind of science behind the pop-click-fizz sound that a nice, cold can makes when you open it. And then that fizz hits the tongue and freezes your mouth slightly. That's the shit.
5. PICKING AT A SCAB
Yes, it's ABSOLUTELY disgusting. No, we don't care. Not even a little bit. Go away.
4. REALISING THERE'S NEW EPISODES OF THAT SHOW YOU LOVE
Your mind is frazzled, you're working non-stop. You have a rare night-off and nobody's bugging you to go out and party. And then, suddenly, you realise there are something like eight episodes of that show you love just waiting to be watched. Put your phone on silent. Grab a blanket. Settle in.
3. GETTING EXTRA PORTIONS OF FOOD YOU DIDN'T ORDER
That second bag of chickenballs is the universe telling you it's all going to be OK.
2. FRESHLY IRONED CLOTHES
Maybe you're like us and you think, "Meh, the creases will fall out" and you'll throw that top on. But if you've got the time and you're bored, iron stuff. Not only is it really satisfying ironing stuff, it feels amazing when you wear them.
1. USING A COIN COUNTING MACHINE
That loose shrapnel you collect on the Monday after a long weekend can be used as bus fare. Or you can let it accumulate in a jar, adding to it regularly and then FORCE IT INTO THE MESH THINGY.
