    Was thinking today, before the long weekend, of things that really give me satisfaction. Make my blood pressure instantly fall, even if just a little bit. So let's hear em. What balms your hide?

    It balms my hide when you get down to the bottom of a cereal box, and the amount of cereal left is exactly enough for one bowl.

    It also balms my hide when I see drivers in oncoming traffic having intensely animated conversations, complete with gesticulations and weird facial expressions.

    Speaking of driving, it balms my hide when I let someone pass or overtake me and they gesture thank you with their hands.

    It also balms my hide when I get good grades in exams I thought I was going to fail.

    It balms my hide when someone actually says thank you when I've held the door open for them.

    On that note, it balms my hide when people hold the door for the person behind them for an extra second. It also balms my hide when I see people get out of their bus seats for - or rush over to help - elderly or disabled people, pregant women or new moms.

    It balms my hide when I hold the door for the old lady at the bank and she tells me " thank you young man"

    ( but then she goes in front of me and takes my spot and now I have to wait 20 for a lame deposit )

    It balms my hide when my clients tell me they passed out my card to their co-workers and told them "I have the BEST lawyer ever, you need to go see her!" :D

    It balms my hide when my 8 year old daughter likes the same songs that I do. I think that stuff about playing lots of your music to the bump in Mom's tummy works out. She likes Texas, Macy Gray, Counting Crows, Train, and tons of stuff that we like.
