Neil Pasricha explains in the foreword of his book The Book of Awesome that he was a boring nine-to-five guy who started a little website called 1000 Awesome Things and he got excited when his traffic doubled because his mom forwarded the link to his dad.
“With so much sad news and bad news pouring down on us, it’s fun to stop for a minute and share a universal high five with the rest of humanity.”
My favorite so far is on page 172: “Discovering those little tabs on the side of the aluminum foil box.”
After a lifetime of unrolling the entire roll of tinfoil I have discovered this piece of awesomeness that I never knew existed. It made me grin. Thanks Neil!
