The Sound of Happiness

Retro Cassette Tapes

Do you have a favorite sound?  Something that just makes you happy?  Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved the sound of men’s dress shoes clacking on a gritty sidewalk.  And the sound of turning thin dictionary pages.

Today, I add to that list, the sound of 16 baby goat hooves on a living room floor.  Check out this video from farmer Nadia Jarreau – I guarantee you will watch it at least 300 times.  (My favorite is the speedy goat who races across the screen at the 5-second mark.)

My Top Ten Happiest Sounds.  Tell me yours in the comments section below!

  1. The squeak of wrapping paper when it’s being taped to a present
  2. The lock release of my keys in the front door at the end of the day
  3. My dad’s voice saying, “Hi, Tan,” on the phone
  4. An escaped snort-laugh
  5. Landing gear opening
  6. A can of soda being popped open
  7. The oven timer when dessert is ready
  8. My cat’s chirp (she can’t meow)
  9. The perfect ballad
  10. A hard rain
