Monday Listicles

Thanks to Stasha for hosting Monday Listicles.  This week's topic is:

10 Tiny Things that Bring you Joy

10.  Sure glad Heather is not writing this list.  That could be awkward.

9.    Serotonin - cause sleep is a good thing right about now


8.  Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.

7. Dopamine - I loves me some rewards...



6. Listicles of course...they get my creative juices flowing.

5. Epinephrine aka Adrenaline - Ohhh what a rush!



4. Endorphin - Come on - they mimic opiates...what could be bad about that?




3.  The nucleus accumbens for whom without - endorphin and dopamine would be useless.


2.  Bobby McFerrin - he didn't let the little things get him down...


1.  I would say Viagra - but that is TMI given the answer to #10

  3. Wow! That was fantastic....I laughed, I cried, it was better than "Cats". #10 made me snort...so I was thankful I was up early and no one else in the house heard me. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Are you this hilarious with your students? Cause it must be difficult to take notes while rolling in the aisles. Or do they do more eye rolling? LOL Great list, as usual!

  11. Is it the endorphins that mimic opiates or is it opiates that mimic endorphins... either way, great list!!

  15. Nice one! I watched myth busters wit my kiddo this morning and they proved 2 poppy seed bagels will make your ruin test positive for opiates. I know how to fix lack of #4 before breakfast ;)

  16. Sleep is very important, especially to the insomniac, which I can be at times. I love Bobby McFarin and I laughed when I came to Viagra. Nice job!
