I've always considered awesome things the kids do, make, say, or give as a paycheck since that's the only paycheck I get. Sometimes I'll go to bed and say to Chris, "I got paid big time today." And yes, there have been days where I've said, "Dude, they withdrew from my bank all frickin' day today." I'm always looking for things I can consider a paycheck and often times it's little things like when the big kids say, "Thank you" to the receipt guy at Costco when he draws them a happy face without any prompting from me and things like that. So really, I pretty much get paid everyday.
Oh, and my coworker is pretty hot.
