If I am going to a restaurant, for instance, it has to be a place where the service is exceptional--the waiter has to offer to name his firstborn child after me--and the food must be able to be described as "food for the gods". The view must be breathtaking and it should offer a three-course set menu for the price of a cup of coffee. Not too much to ask is it?
When going out for drinks and nibblies, there had better be some headline entertainment to go with those nibblies and an opportunity to meet someone famous and delectable, like...uh-oh I can't think of anyone, how sad is that?
When on a day out, that day had better be packed with fun-filled adventure so much so that my face hurts from smiling and laughing.
See what I mean? With standards like these, how am I ever going to be happy again? Oh that's right, I am happiest when I do things with my family and friends that don't involve spending money, like having a barbecue on the beach or getting together with close friends to share a meal, a few drinks and play games.
What activities make you the happiest?
