Take it away, Ben!
HEAR: "Trap Queen" by Fetty Wap
This song has been on the radio the last few mornings as I've pulled into the parking lot at work. I'll be honest--I have no clue what this song is actually about. I just Binged (just kidding -- Googled) "Trap Queen" and learned that it's a term used to describe "a bomb-ass female." Whatever the case may be, I definitely feel like a bad-ass pulling into the parking lot while this song is blasting. The criminal defendants probably look at me like whaaaaaaaat?
SEE: My version of a 2-car garage
I've always dreamed of having a garage gym. Now that spring has arrived. I've moved the rowing machine and Airdyne up from the basement and into the garage. I use these two machines most weekday mornings to start my day. I think it's much cooler to keep your cars parked in the driveway and use the garage for a workout space.
TOUCH: Simplifying my keys
I used to carry around a keychain with a bunch of different sets of keys on it. I had keys for both cars, work, home, etc. Now, I've switched to just one key for my car and one key for the home. It's a small change, but it's brought me a lot of pleasure. I guess that's what makes it a simple joy!
TASTE: Toll House Cookie Pie at Barbyann's
I used to go to Barbyann's (a local restaurant) for my birthday when I was a kid on Cape Cod. Now that we've moved back home, we seem to have reinstated the tradition. The best part about Barbyann's is the Toll House Cookie Pie for dessert. It's absolutely incredible!
SMELL: Basketball sneakers
This is actually a good smell to me, since it means that I'm playing basketball again. My feet take an absolute beating while playing basketball, but playing again has made me very happy. Basketball has always been a huge part of my life. It's been fun to lace up the sneakers and play on Saturday mornings with some friends.
So there you go--SJOTW from a guy's point of view! I love it. Thanks for sharing, Ben.
What brought you joy over the past week or so? Take some time to reflect today, if you can...
Hope you have a bomb-ass weekend, everyone! ;)
