It's not that may life is so boring that I am never surprised , or so full of incident that I cannot choose just one, but this is a harder question to answer than I thought. I have tried to keep a sense of wonder and delight alive in daily life so every day has something a little surprising. I think living with a ten year old boy helps keep the surprise factor up too.
