1. Kentucky Fried Chicken (but not too often)
2. The neighbor's tangerine tree, which is full of shining fruit that nobody can reach.
3. A spanking new radiator in the car.
4. A mechanic who was so excited about getting the radiator parts for less money that he called me, twice, to tell me about it.
5. The way banana leaves get raggedy in the wind, like big green feathers.
