Yesterday’s joy jolt was a tie between breakfast at Waffle House, a guilty pleasure I haven’t had for years (cheese grits: don’t knock ‘em til you try ‘em), and seeing the movie Big Miracle with my kids. It wasn’t exactly a classic, but I’m a sucker for animals in trouble and people working to save them, even though in this case, many of their motives weren’t altruistic. It’s a toss-up.
Today’s joy jolt came from sneaking a few minutes away from family to dance myself silly to this song (there isn’t an official video for it, so the link is really only good for audio). Gotye is amazing. As is dancing without worrying about someone seeing you (not because you are pretending to be so confident and evolved that you can dance like no one is watching even when people are but because you are behind locked doors, alone).
