What a week! The Daily Daily Delight totally pulled me out of my funk just as I predicted. I found myself looking for things to make me smile instead of seeing everything as a giant inconvenience. The latter perspective is a hard thing to shake after almost five years in New York; complaining is our national language and inconvenience is our currency. I always tell people, if you want to look like you belong in the city, react to none of the completely insane things that will happen around you all day, which could range from a super high subway rider threatening to stab everyone with a knitting needle, to a man with a 6 foot python around his neck (both are things I've encountered far too recently), but if anything happens to even moderately inconvenience you, huff and puff and stamp your feet like a tired two year-old.
But I digress. The Daily Delight has really helped bring me out of my New York incredulity and remember how unbelievably great my life is and how truly kickass this city is (python carrying men and all).
I also had a lot of fun seeing what delighted you and getting a glimpse into your lives. So, I thought I'd pick and share my three favorite Daily Delights from you guys this week and maybe keep you inspired for another week of delights!
First off, my favorite post of mine (I know you already saw it, but I have to share again):
Guys...this makes me laugh sooooo hard every time I see it. The first time I saw it, I was at work and I was laughing so hard I started crying and crumpled on my desk until about five coworkers came by to see if I was dying. I then showed them the pic and was instantly convinced they didn't think it was funny enough, even though they were laughing. I will forever think of this dog when I need to smile and laugh until my stomach muscles ache.
Number two on the list is this gem from @emilyann_behar
The only thing that needs to be said about this... I WANNA RIDE A CAMEL!!!!!!!!
And finally, the number three comes from my glorious sister, @laura.eliza_beth
Okay, so I'm probably super biased, because a) this is my sister's post and b) I love this beast so much I can't even stand it. Her name is Emma and she is a Red Nosed Pittie/Rodhesian Ridgeback/possibly Visla mix. I helped to raise this rescue pup for the past ten years and she's on of the top ten dogs of all time. I want to kiss her beautiful beast head.
Okay, enough of me lovin' on my sister's dog. Posting my delights has been the highlight of me week, but more than that, I've loved seeing yours. Keep 'em coming! But just a quick note, if I don't follow you on Instagram, make sure to tag @thebeeskneesmg in your #thedailydelight posts, otherwise I can't see them. I'd also love to open this up to Twitter and Facebook, so even if you don't have a picture daily delight, tweet it to me or post it on the facespace with the hashtag. I can't wait to see what blows your hair back this week!
