Dinner is ready!


What is the one word or phrase that immediately cheers you up when you hear it?

Dinner is ready! That means I didn’t have to do it. That I had time to relax for a while and do whatever I wanted without worries. I’m not a great cook and for me the kitchen is a stressful place. So I’m a happy camper when somebody comes to me with the offer to prepare a meal, and usually the outcome is pretty good.
Seriously, there are other words that really cheer me up and make me smile instantly every day: words of love that belong to my private life and I’m not going to reproduce them here.

Pick Me Up.
