There is something sweet and unspoken about spending time with someone with whom the veil is lifted. And to play Five Nice Things with them is a treasure. And it’s not just for us, but take it from us: We only have a tiny spot of time together. We can notice, or we can not notice, nice things. I recommend the former.

  1. Sparkling water, not out of a can. For my birthday my wife gave me a thing that’s like a SodaStream, but isn’t a SodaStream while still using SodaStream-style cartridges, and now I have cold sparkling water all the time in the fridge. And the ritual of refilling — with the pressure and the sound that goes whoosh — is so satisfying.

Now that I’ve gone, it’s your turn. Let me know what you come up with.
