1. I perform a calculation mid-sentence during a conversation without pause or thought. A few seconds later, my conscious mind kicks in and questions what just happened – did I really just get the maths right on the fly? My face becomes blank and I say “what?” several times. We laugh at the sudden change.

2. Nothing gets Lily as hyper as getting out of the shower. She soaks the whole bathroom then, when I open the door, runs down two flights of stairs to tell John she’s clean.

3. The smoothness of my new crochet hook; the speed at which a square works up.

* John’s joke while I was “what”ing
