Pleasing.

Running the side of a pen over a fold in the paper, in order to make a nice, sharp crease.

Hitting the heel of your hand on the flat site of the knife in order to crack open a clove of garlic.

Opening a new trashbag, and snapping your wrists so it makes a nice POPping sound, scaring the cats a little bit (ha!)

The first scrawl of your pen on a fresh notepad.

Pumping gas and having your total end on a nice, round number.

Making plans with friends many weeks in advance, so you have a good long time to savor your excitement.

Winding up the cord properly on the vacuum, instead of lazily looping over the top.

Remembering the words to a song you haven’t heard in probably ten years.

Sipping wine and cooking a delicious dinner while dirtying a ridiculous amount of dishes while you sing along to the radio and purposely avoid dealing with the unpleasantness of the outside world.

Found myself saying, "mmm, yes" to all of these. Preach.
