Just a stupid thread: What small things make you feel like a winner?

I went to a little military thing called SERE school (Survival, evasion, resistance and escape). The biggest lesson there was if you wound up as a POW, go for little victories, and come out alive as the big victory.

Every day that goes by, I count all my little victories, found pennies, five minutes of quiet solitude, and rep points. Definitely, rep points. Definitely. Oh yeah, and beating the crap out of someone on "Jeopardy". Baby, OOOOO oooo oo.

hey good for you!! Around my place I am not allowed anywhere near the bank, the property card collection or the houses/hotels. Why, cuz I'm a big fat cheater and the gals 'round here have my number! To me a big part of any game is the "psych ops" where you make people think you are constantly pulling a fast one on em which in turn throws them off their program. It's my only chance at victory.

The small things that make me feel like a wiener...ahem winner you ask?

hmmm walking down the aisle at the grocery store and seeing my favorite adult beverage on a major sale that I was totally unaware of!
