"My pyjamas bring me joy."
Three women on a train discussing clothes. One of them had done a "programme" where you hold up each individual item from your wardrobe and ask "Does this bring me joy?" If the answer is no, you get rid of it. She got rid of half her clothes. (This programme would leave me naked. There's an awful lot of space between "joy" and "superfluous".)

What a weird idea. Were I to discard the clothes that don't bring me joy I would be naked  :sick: except for the blue and white EDDY MERCKX cotton racing cap I was given when I was seven.

Books, on the other hand, do bring feelings of joy. As does my Brompton, which has supplanted all the others as No 1 Favourite Bike.

Clothes do function, not joy. This week, Aberdeen, winter coat. Function=not death.

I could use it to explain N + 5 for my bicycles, perhaps

Yes! I know the woman on the train mentioned a name in connection with it but I couldn't remember it. Her expressive skills are quite entertaining.  :D

Oh yes! "This one sparks joy when I'm riding fast on a sunny Sunday. This one sparks joy when I'm blasting through the woods covered in mud. This one sparks joy when I'm going to work on Monday morning, it's raining and the sun hasn't yet risen. This one sparks joy when I'm lost, cold, hungry and tired two hours from the next control at 2a.m. and this one sparks joy when I caress its shiny parts."

Just to confirm.  There is, in fact, a hill.
