Daily Awesome = The Pee Race

How does one get so much pleasure from something so simple?  The daily awesome is not so much in the technical definition of “awesome”  of expressing awe in the remarkable or outstanding but more in the informal sense, that sometimes you have to slow down and appreciate some of the common, everyday things we take for granted.

I realized today how silly this is and the strange things I do to amuse myself.  Am I that competitive or do other people do these kinds of things?  The pee race is a game I play quite often.  Not everyday.  I usually get a medium coffee in the morning.  Today, however was  a formerly known as x-large kind of coffee day.  When this happens I find I get down to about the last 1/4 – 1/3 of a cup at about the same time a) it’s getting cold and b) I have to pee.  I proceed to the microwave and hit about 30 secs.  Then, you guessed it.  On your mark.  Get set.  Go!  I see if I can pee and wash my hands in the amount of time it takes to get back out to my warmed up coffee.  I suppose this makes me a dork.  Today I lost!  I giggled to myself and it was kind of awesome. 

Formerly Known as X-Large

I dislike the fact that Tim Horton’s changed their cup sizes.  To to me the “new” Large does not adequately describe the amount of coffee.  In my opinion it was a lot of coffee and therefore was far more impressive when it was called X-Large.  Now I have to call it “formerly known as X-Large” coffee in order to get my point across.

Daily Awesome = Travel Mugs

How does one get so much pleasure from something so simple?  The daily awesome is not so much in the technical  definition of  “awesome”,  of expressing awe in the remarkable or outstanding but more in the informal sense, that sometimes you have to slow down and appreciate some of the common, everyday things we take for granted.

Today’s awesome comes from a gift at work.  Two travel mugs.  One silver and one bronze.  I appropriated the bronze coloured one.  So much happiness from a travel mug?  I’m not sure why it makes me happy.  Perhaps the knowledge that it will be filled with warm coffee and I’ll sip it during my girlies summer soccer games.  Plus it has a cool “auto seal” for no drip/spill while drinking and traveling.  Sheesh!  This sounds like a paid commercial announcement.  It’s not. 🙂
