Blatantly stealing, renaming, and reviving an ever-so-fun idea from the ever-so-wonderful Becky Cochrane, who first came up with it way back in the height of our LiveJournal days (circa 2008ish)…
I have in my hot little hands a copy of a delightful book called 14,000 things to be happy about, which is filled to bursting with, well, 14,000 things to be happy about!
And I want to share them with you!
All you have to do is comment below with two numbers – the first between 1 and 612 (i.e., the number of pages in the book) and the second between 1 and 30 (i.e., the approximate number of happy items listed on each page) – and I’ll consult the book and give you something to be happy about! (If there aren’t enough items on the page you choose, never fear – I’ll just keep counting over to the next page so you won’t miss out on any happy goodness.)
Before you jump in and comment, however, know that there are no guarantees as to what you’ll end up with (as you might have guessed from the “Wildcard Wednesday” moniker!) – your chosen happy item might turn out to be whimsical or evocative, silly or inspirational, perfectly timed or completely inappropriate… it might spark a memory, a question, a conversation… or hey, it might even give you an idea for a story or blog post! But no matter what, I think it’ll be fun… and I’d love it if you’d join in!
So, are you ready to play?
Give me some numbers and I’ll give you some happy!
