I'd almost say that *because* we're so electronically connected these days, getting any sort of snail mail (letter, postcard, card, etc) from a friend or family member is really special to me. There's so much more emotion in reading something written in someone's handwriting that could never be replicated with typefaces or computer programs.

Seeing my grandma hold my baby cousin (her grandaughter) for the first time is also something I'll always treasure.



it says so right here in the wcw handbook!

    I agree with you all re the personal stuff. My wife and daughter are special as is what we do. I am not talking about that kind of item. We have hype telling us for weeks, if not months, in advance what is supposed to be special. Maybe another part of my query, is where is the mystery and anticipation that makes life (in a large sense)special.


This is a practice that has been around for centuries, dare I say milleniae, through the practice of carnival barkers, clergy, and other salesmen. The clergy is the worst, because they forcefeed 'sacred' along with 'special'. I've been told for years how special heaven will be, how sacred the church is, blah blah blah.

For me, when something wholly unforseen (but not necessarily catastrophic) happens, and grasps the awe and wonder of millions, that my friend is special.



Hold nothing sacred and you'll never be dissapointed. Especially not this statement.

My mother spends one week a year in The City. She and I are both rabid Yanks fans, so she schedules the time around a homestand and we go to as many games as I can afford. That's always pretty good.

And my girlfriend and I live 200 miles away from each other. Any second we get together is pretty special.

I love the feeling of seeing my 10 month old smile as soon as he sees my face in the evening ...

I love an evening out with just my wife, sitting at a high top table in a restaurant bar, eating appetizers & drinking a beer.

I enjoy a lot of the little things in life. I enjoy smoking cigarettes in the summer with my brother on his front porch. I love holding my girlfriend's hand while we walk.

Oh, and AWArulz, your comment made me mist up a little. Maybe I'm just a big softy.

The Royal Rumble.

The Super Bowl.

The first snowfall of Autumn.

The seasonal availability of caramel apple milkshakes at Steak n Shake. (At least I'm HOPING that's going to become a seasonal tradition...)

Well, Special K has been special since I was a kid!

My oldest son is special to me. He is going to be 8 in Auugst and he has Autism. He has overcome so much and tries so hard that any positive steps he takes is a huge leap. When he was younger, he could never look me in the eye. Now that he is a little older, he can sustain eye contact for a while, or as long as he wants to. What is special is when he sits next to me on the couch to watch a show and he just looks up to me with no prompt and looks me right in the eyes and smiles and tells me he loves me. I am not a emotional person but the first time he did that I cried for 10 minutes. Even now, I get choked up every time he does it.

Now if you will excuse me, I have some dust in my eyes...





Well, that's just drunk talk! Sweet, beautiful drunk talk....
