    Thought I'd start a thread so we can share those little things that can just make your day!

    I volunteer in a school and look after little ones aged between 4 & 8. One little girl interrupted our reading session by asking "why are you so pretty? Are you a princess?"

    It kept me smiling all day. :)

    Kids say the best things sometimes.

    When I compliment my husband and he comes back with "you just made my day". Things like that put me in the best mood knowing that I made someone I love happy.

    That's adorable!!! There was a point I had been really really down and extremely sick. My 6 year old son came up to me and gave me a hug followed by "Mommy you're beautiful" and began singing his night time songs. This was just a week before his dead beat dad got custody. I miss my baby

    Mine are all game related, like when you manage the perfect gank, or you pull off an almost impossible hit. Like how I managed to snare a stealthed twitch the other day

    Seeing a family greet one another at a door before shuffling into the house around holidays.

    That four second interval where the door remains open and you can see the warm exchange of smiles, hugs, laughter, etc is really heart warming to me.

    And then it's closed.

    I like to imagine what goes on in the house. What sorts of stories are being told, family recipes being discussed, sports, and of course the uncle/grandfather who falls asleep.

    I often think along a similar path when I see people boarding airplanes. "Where are they going?"

    Unless you're playing TT or Dom, I'd find it odd that someone was playing Twitch in SR.

    Not that he's a bad adc; but in team fights his survivability is very low. His only escapes are countered by Merc Treads and oracles. People seem to forget how to play him when they can't use his stealth to remain stealthed.

    Some days, my wife is in a golden mood and it rubs off :)

    Other days, I'm almost literally having conversations with our gray cat, who is much more chatty than most cats and frequently responds if you talk to him.
    Me: I glance at the cat to see what he's doing
    Cat:"Meeeow?"
    Me: "Meeow"
    Cat: "Mmmmow!"
    Me: "Meeow" (sorry I don't know any other cat phrases)
    Cat: "Prrrrow....meow!"
    ....and so forth

    That's cause you've got to build a team around him. You usually want someone like Leona as your support, and one or two other people on your team with aoe disables. Works well if you put a Galio mid and a jarvan/mummy in your jungle.

    Seriously, I've supported Tweetches as Leona and taken out bot tower at or under the 5 minute mark at least twice.

    I also volunteer (at a couple of places), and the smiles and comments are so precious to me....wish I could be specific, but I can imagine the headlines now: "Local (fill in blank) volunteer discovered on sex forum". And then somewhere in the article it would say something like, "among her most perverted interests are x, y and z."

    My brother and his wife have managed to crank out four kids now (one recently born), and he's not even a full year older than me. When I go over to babysit, their excitement is so fresh that it's almost like they think I'm some sort of Santa Claus. My dog is like that too when I come home...lol!

    Elderly couples who hold hands are just about the cutest people in the world.

    Colorful things make me smile all the time, and then when I discover an amazing new song or an old one I've never heard, it's like I've struck gold. That's when the dancing starts, and dancing is always a smile worthy occasion.

    Including this, that's my main problem with Twitch. He's just not a very practical choice any more. He's outranged, out damaged, out maneuvered, etc. Ashe as adc is the only other one I can think of who is less versatile than Twitch. That being said, I still love playing Twitch in 3's or dom. He just takes so long to farm up to counter his shortcomings.

    Bot combos can be effective any way you roll it. I've seen early tower defeats with a double support bot, teemo (supp)/Varus(adc) bot. It all comes down to damage, cc, denying farm, cs, and ganks (if their jungle is ganking).

    Oh, but he's not outdamaged, that little punk hurts. his stealth also adds MS, which helps with positioning, and his ult will wreck teams and keep him alive, since he gets lifesteal from every unit hit, add in a hurricane and it's ridiculous.

    Yes. My cats can always bring me out of a funk. Their love is unconditional and they demand only that I devote my entire life to improving theirs. ;-> = man with beard winking.
