Some folks need a little additional excitement in their lives. We need to try new things on a regular basis or we get kind of bored. Of course, that’s also balanced out with a strong risk aversion and ability to defer gratification. Still, we get cabin fever. We need thrills.
#1 Goes to the grocery store and buys ANYTHING SHE WANTS. Anything! When life is dull, she and her partner will dig out a relatively untouched cookbook and systematically go through all the recipes they haven’t tried, annotating the results. If they lived in a larger more diverse metropolitan area, this would extend to trying new restaurants… unfortunately they’ve run out of those until some close and are replaced by others.
If she didn’t allow herself to go crazy with food, she would probably have to take up sky-diving or drag-racing. Thank goodness for grocery stores and cookbooks.
#2 gets her excitement in life the same way unspoken fortune cookie phrases do. Monogamously.
What do you do when you need excitement in your life?
