My list goes…
1. As soon as it finishes eating, my dog wipes its mouth on my skirt. Pretending to be adorable, it uses my dress as a towel!
2. I run out of credit and my phone operator sends a 40% recharge bonus. Coincidence?
3. A saree-clad woman sweeping the street smiles absently as I walk past.
4. A secret glance, pat on the shoulder, a ‘like’ on facebook. It’s thrilling to feel admired for that very second or less, eventually lost amongst the trivia of our lives.
5. The seed I planted months ago and watered diligently, bursts into baby roots.
6. The grilled fish turns out perfect! Lemon, salt and right temperature do wonders.
7. Watching a father-daughter wedding dance. (Watch it 1:15 onwards…hilarious)
8. The line, “amake marben na ami choto” (Don’t hit me, I am petite) written on the back of a rickshaw.
9. Winning a criss-cross game.
10. Flipping through old albums, spotting a photo of me wearing grandma glasses.
Would love to hear what makes you smile. Share by leaving a comment.
