Sunday Thread: Best Day Ever

I have a friend who insists that, if you live a decent and virtuous life, when you die you will go back to the time and place in which you were the happiest, and live in that moment for the rest of eternity. I almost always find discussion of the afterlife an unnecessary distraction from the present, as it usually takes the form of a threat or a bribe to induce adherence to a set of arbitrarily determined rules about everything except basic human decency. I have to admit, though, if you’re gonna bribe me with something, that’s a pretty attractive prize to hold out. I might pray however many times a week you say I have to in order to get the chewy center of that lollipop.

What was the best day of your life? When, where, and with whom, were you the happiest?
