    Anytime you can use the phrase "tout suite" in conversation.

    When the waitress gives you a fiver and five one's in change, and you push the entire stack back at her.

    When you go into the boss' office to tell him you haven't finished your deliverables, only to find that he called out sick that day.

    watching my kids sleep, eat, doing homework, or something simple when they have no idea that I am watching.

    When my dogs are waiting for me by the door. Doesn't matter if I've been gone to work all day, or just ran to the store. Every time I walk through the door it is Christmas morning for them.

    Yeah... I'm a bit a creeper too. Watching people when they have no idea. I usually go for the younger moms at church though.

    Back on topic.... Nice long hot bath... and a ice cold Diet Dr. Pepper when you get out.

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Listening to kids talk about nothing important at dinner.
    Walking dogs at sunset.
    Firing up wood-pellet stove and having brunch on deck (hopefully stove won't be needed soon).

    The way my son takes so much joy in Pokemon Go raids. The way he yells out in excitement which Pokemon and loves when his Dragonite does Draco Meteor. How happy he is to show people at the raids his latest catches and how he takes so much enjoyment in sharing with his Pokemon friends.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    She's working this summer, going to uvu in the fall. Kicking her out has been discussed because she continues to be mean and ignore our rules. But she hasn't done anything where she crosses a line- just general selfishness and unpleasant behaviorb that grates on you. I really can't see myself kicking her out- that's drastic and her "crimes" don't warrant it. She is at work a lot, with her loser boyfriend a lot, so we just enjoy when she isn't around.

    Dinner on our shaded back patio on a dry cool utah summer evening.

    Watching TV in bed.

    Biting into that first smoked pork rib.

    Sleeping in and then having a nice breakfast.

    Heh. I played Pokemon Go with my son back when it came out two summers ago. Dang, those were some good times; just walking around the local parks during the twilight hours, chatting and waiting for Mom to call and tell us it was way past time to return home. Now he is almost two feet taller and has traded his interest in Pokemon for interest in the Stake President's daughter. :/

    It would be no small pleasure to watch Walter deal with his son marrying into an uber-Mormon family. Even better if they are Marvel fans.

    Beating my 13-year-old repeatedly at a local park in "Pig".
    My 10-year-old giving me a hug almost every day when I come home.
    Playing rhyming games with my 8-year-old.

    I've fully embraced Pokemon Go. It has been such a great time with my son. He looks forward to the monthly community days and events that they do now. He will talk for weeks with anticipation about community days and the new legendary Pokemon.

    Now if I could just get a damn Shiny Kyogre.
